What a mess

Well Sunday night I ripped in to the Bronco and started to install my lift

Before



What I had to deal with







Front lift is in ordered shocks today





Gained a tad over 5" lift from a 4" kit my coils were sagging bad



My garage floor after I raked it .. yes had to rake it





still have to install the rear leaf springs and the shocks when they get here

I think I might trim and go with 38" swampers.. or no trim and 35" swampers... the 33's look small now, I have 9.5" from top of tire to fender opening

ya it looks really bad right now.. amazing it is pretty solid for a 30 year old truck.. the mud dont help it in the look department though.. as far as power washing it naw im gunna go run it up the creek/stream in a few weeks the water is gonna be right around the rocker pannel maybe a little deeper so it will clean itself off.. the creek bed is all rock so it will not get more muddy.. but it sucks puttin a lift on a muddy a$$ truck...


this is how it looked the morning of the mud run as we were loading up

I'def. have to spray it off before I started wrenching on it. I see the longer coil springs but where are the drop down brackets for the radius arm hangers?

not required for the 4" lift .. just had to use a drop bracket for the track bar

Though not as desirable, #2207 C-bushings can be substituted for #1275 (and #1375 bolt kit) radius arm drop brackets for a budget kit
