Subject: FTE Small - Bronco II Lift Kit?

Hey all. im new to the list, but not to off-roading. I have a 1988 Bronco
II. I am looking to put a 5" or 6" lift kit with a 3" body lift, and 35"
Thornbird tires. Has anyone lifted their bronco II or know anything about
it? I am looking for advice on what is a good lift kit for it. Also, what
parts I will have to replace, like driveshaft, tranny, etc......? If anyone
know anything to do with this, please let me know. Thanks alot.

Hi Keith,
I don't know how much other brands sell for, but I tend to put
Bilstein shocks on everything. :-) NORMALLY they are quite expensive,
as you mention, HOWEVER, Bilstein has been trying to build market share
in the truck market and have had real good pricing on -truck- sizes for
a good while now. Last I heard they were in the $50-60each range. I
can't say about other truck shocks but, for Bilsteins, that's cheap.
Auto Sport Gallery 1-800-868-2002 in Raleigh NC is who I order
from. They accept credit cards and will ship.
WARNING: The owner IS a friend of mine, but I get NO kickback. :-)
He (Tom Bishop) uses them on all his vehicles too.

Replying to anyone who cares ;)

I recently (two days ago) replaced the shocks on my 91 Ranger. For my
driving (lots of bumps on road, mild off-roading, and usually driving
fast on both) purposes, I went with Gabriel. They are great for my
purposes, and were much cheaper than Edelbrocks. I looked into
Edelbrock's very seriously but couldn't afford the $65 price tag (a
peice). Hey, I'm just 16. If you're looking to put more money than I
did into it, I would recomend Edelbrock's, as I know a few people
(4 or 5) with trucks/SUVS who use them and they are very good off and
on road. I would have got them on mine, but as i said, I'm only 16 and
just couldn't afford the price tag.... Oh, and the Gabriel shocks were
around $35 a peice.

I'd push a Ford before I drove a Chevy, but I don't need to.
