Your a 'Ford Lover'. Why in the hell would you contimplate leaf springs in the front of a 79 Bronco?...Oh, I get it, you can't figure out how to keep the coils/radius arms when installing the 60. Hint...Get a set of Duff's aftermarket C-bush wedges and put them on the 60.

probably hoping he can bolt the leafs to the frame without any welding.

leafs suck
coils good.

for all you jackasses that want to talk shit im fully aware of how to keep my radius arms if i wanted,but they break along with track bars that break and anyone knows a rig with leafs that is propperley set up will out flex a rig with coil springs any day. and to you jopes i wouldnt talk any shit have you looked at your rig lately especialy those tires you had on that thing last time i was at the con what a joke you blew two of them on the way out. This board is getting rediculious you cant even ask a simple question without people talking shit. :flipoff2: :flipoff2: :flipoff2: :flipoff2:

I look @ my rig every day. :flipoff2:


the reason why the tires failed is they were rotted out. live and learn but now there are nice new iroks on there. :flipoff2:

Yep. I've seen this done with full hydro, or how 'bout a box from a '78 F150 Supercab? I think it was push/pull kinda like Chevy. 'Course I dunno if you could get the appropriate arm on your driver's side knuckle.

EDIT: either than that, its' an easy swap. Box the framehorns, get the front/front hangers from a late '70s F250 (or just make them out of square tube, 4x4 x .250 works great for 3" springs), burn a hole for the shackle pivot (shackle straddles the frame), voila you're done. Works because your framerails are basically straight

yeah i was hoping not to have to go to full hydro as i would still like to be able to drive it on the street every once in awhile but if i have to then thats what will happen. On the box you were talking about is that off a 2 wheel drive or four wheel drive truck? any help would be appreciated thanks
