How come leafs and not linked or arms?
Multiple reasons. The main reason is that I'm still dealing with only 93" wheelbase. I'll also use this Bronco as my others for my Bronco business so that my clients can see what modifications we offer that they may want. Most of them a linked Bronco wouldn't interest them. Another reason is I have my full size Bronco prerunner for going fast, and with this one I'm just looking for a better ride while cruising the desert. I don't go crawling either, way to slow of a sport for me.
What we've done on several builds is to relocate the spring hanger and build longer shackles, allowing a lot more down droop. They work great. And yes, a good set of progressive springs.Got it, just wondering. Trying to decide what to do - or not to do - to my 69 rear suspension. In a similar frame of mind as you, the bronco has to do allot of things well and not just "go fast", "rock crawl" or be a street queen. A good set of leafs seem to be the all around compromise.
