Yeah I love the 300 in my 93 f150 my first truck I mean the motor has been hydrolocked once so I rebuilt it and its still running strong. I do like it in the bronco with the granny gear. Stock with only 31s I gave made it thru places some big trucks go. Just throw it in low and give it.
Now with the 6in lift I'm installing it and the front sits about 2-3in higher than the rear, will this go go down after driving it a little? It does look sweet tho besides the don't being higher
No clue, what brand lift? is it 6'' springs in the rear, 6'' in the front?
I put 6'' springs in my rear, with the stock angle block it was sitting a good 3+ inches higher than my 5.5'' Deaver springs in the front.. I couldn't stand it and repacked my rear springs to bring it more in line with the front (and to soften the springs up)
also eventually going to replace the stock block with just an angled shim to drop it another inch or so, and give me enough room to add another leaf if I need to, to combat wheel wrap.
Well rough country lift. The front sits 2in higher than the rear. But when I drive it my front tires are riding on the sidewall its that bad of an angle. But when I back up the the top of the tires angle in and looks level. I'm going to do ball joints in a couple weeks and maybe the stearing swap to the top of the mounting hole. I'm thinking their is soo much stress with the stearing that if I swap I it will lower the front. When I drove it every bump I hit or I couldnt go over 35 that the truck swayed side to side sometimes bad
I'll second the notion to keep the 300... I mean, trading 2 cubic inches for less power on the bottom end where the heavy Bronco really needs it will basically gain you two cubic inches, two pistons, two more spark plugs to buy and about a 12% reduction in mileage. Besides, when was the last time a 302 went 250,000+ miles before needing an overhaul?
my bronco has the 302 and its at 207,400 without and overhaul ever. still running strong with no problems
