Subject: B.II rear sway bar

I would appreciate if anyone had the measurements (side/side) of a
Bronco II or Ranger ? rear sway bar; I am trying to adapt to my 54 F100
a sway bar which would fit inside the frame, about 34 inches across, and
I heard these might work.
It's a long story, but trust me I can't use a bar "made" for this truck,
due to spring interference.

Thanks!

What are you working on, Paul?

I also drive a Bronco II, and am wondering what others have done to theirs.

The width (vertical eye to vertical eye) on my '84 BII (7 1/2" diff) is
30 1/2". If it matters, the sway bar is clamped (like a muffler clamp)
on either side of the pumpkin, so you should be able to clear your drive
line. And I discovered that my '83 Ranger (was to be a parts truck, but
thinking of throwing a V8 in it....) has no sway bars at all. Looks
like it never had any, either. Good thing I found out now rather than
later.....

Good luck

Sway bars are option on the rear of Rangers. They are standard if you got
the off road package or if you got the splash version.

Subject: Sway bar questions

Having seen the current thread about BII sway bars, i wuz
wondering....(very dangerous)

I'd like to put front & rear sway bars on my 85 2WD Ranger. It doesn't
have any now.

Are there any other vehicles trhat used a setup that would fit my Ranger?

Something commonly found in junque yards?

I can't afford an aftermarket sway bar set up right now, so the bone yard
is the budget level I have to work around.

so, any comments thus far? Do others have problems with their mid-90's
Rangers chewing up front tires?

Thanks for any and all input
Will

I've had no problems on either my '93 or '95 (4X4,ext.cab).
I rotate the tires regularly (I have a full size spare and rotate that in). I've now got 106,000 miles on the truck and still have the original tires. And they look like they still have a lot of life left in them (another ) year or two.

Subject: Replacing Spart Plugs
From: "Jeff M. Kornfeld" juno.com>

I'm planning to replace the spark plugs on my 96 Ranger which has a 2.3
liter 4 cylinder engine. The sparkplugs on the left side of the engine
under the air induction unit look real easy to get at, but the ones on
the right side under the air plenem look like they would be very
difficult to get at unless I remove the air plenem and throttle position
senser. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions about it.

Also I would like advice about getting all=terrain tires for my truck.
I've got P215/70 R14 on my truck now. I looking for tires with stronger
side walls (I tend to curb the tires alot when I parallel park), that do
well I snow and to make my truck look more industrial.

Thanks for all your help,
