Cant leave it like this forever!
Scored a set of leaf springs out of an Excursion pretty cheap a while back, so we're going to use the front set!
the Excursion guys hate these leafs, they think theyre too soft and usually switch to V-codes out of the Superdutys. So hopefully these will be just right for a bronco!
These things are a bit rough though. All the anti-friction pads are shot, and the center pins look rough, so its all getting replaced
New anti-friction material from Speedway, and a set of new pads from Dorman:
Wire wheel, paint, new pads, bushings, center pins and done!
We're using the 2wd version of a 2" shackle reversal for a 85-91 F250/F350 from Sky's Offroad Design, along with quite a few other parts from them that you'll see show up as this project moves along
Sky's low clearance shackle hangars
...and the front hangar installed! The 2wd hangar fits right up on the bronco's frame like it was made for it. The 2wd version comes with plates for the inside of the frame horns to box them up a bit so its nice and stiff once its all bolted together.
...and the leafs installed!
Next up: getting that D60 installed!
