Then I removed the tank and cleaned and painted the rear half of the frame with POR15. I also removed the 9" and springs.
I had the springs sandblasted and I painted them. I cleaned the rear end, replaced the bearings in the axles and bought a new 3.73 Traction Lock from Bronco Connection, replacing the 3.00 open that was in the truck.
I also installed Energy Suspension Bushings, a set of lowering shackles, and KYB Shocks. New brake lines, and rebuilt the rear brakes.
I sure hope your wife is proud of what you are doing there. Admirable taking your father inlaws old picup and restoring it. Great work.
