Does anyone have any ideas on how to beef up the rear suspesion of my 1976 F100. Here is the deal it rides nice handles well, but I can't carry any kind of load without the back end going way down to the ground. Ultimately I would like to raise the backend about 2 inches, increase the load carry capacity, and not loose to much of the ride quality I now have. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Well i belive the easiest thing to do would to go to a junk yard and take the rear springs from a 1 ton truck. Maybe even the whole rear end. Thats was one of the first things I did to my truck.
I didn't put the springs in myself but i belive its pretty much just bolt them in. You will need new u-bolts because of the thicker springs and they may make the ride a little rougher. But ya gotta take the good with the bad.
