    Hey, you gave somebody one here some really good advice on an axle swap for a 76ish f250 and I would like to get your advice on a similar question...

    I have a 71' f100 4x4, and I would really like to swap the axles as well and have disc brakes in the front. The axle could remain a half ton axle but I don't know what year/model I should be looking from for a replacement. I also want it lifted, staying with coil suspension (about 4 inches), and I haven't been able to find a lot of detailed info online for the bumpsides, so I have no idea what I need and where to get it from. This is not a SEMA truck, so I would like to keep the price reasonable.... please any advise?

    axles w/coil perches & disc brakes?
    lift help?

    Hey my names Adam, in the Air Force. Looking at lifting my 75 3/4 ton 4x4. I've been hearing a lot about sd front leafs. I want a 6in lift and I've been hearing different stories about how much lift these springs give. Could you possibly help me out. 4,6, or 8in lift sd springs ? Thank you for your time.

    On that inverted T style for the P/S swap. Would it work if I kept my 73 D44 and ran that crossover bar to where that steering stabilizer bolts to the drag link or do you think the angle would be off with a 4" lift. Finding knowledgable guys that actually share there knowledge is not common around where I'm from... Thanks in advance.

    Seems you mention 77 Hi boy steering quiet a bit. I'm looking at options ,and thinking the F150 box would work best for me. Doing a lift on the truck , and Cummins swap. But the box to then use is 78/79 F150? 2wd or 4wd?

    Hi 75F350 you are the person that seems to know the most about using superduty springs on highboys so I have a couple questions for you.
    1) I'm swapping a diesel into my 76 and need to get around 2-3 inches of lift for oil pan clearance, so what would be the right springs to get this lift? It cleared old 38.5s stock so not a lot of droop.
    2) I'll need to convert to cross-over steering, so will the springs become a factor down the road?
    Thanks Mike

    also the ORU set up is not quite wide enough. I didn't know how it compared to the sky if the sky was wider and should i go with that. Did you have to heat yours and pound it in, in order for it to fit?
    Again nice build! and I can't wait to get my under way. Getting the wheels refinished and can only afford a little at a time.

    Nice Bronco! I am trying to do the same with a dana 60 king pin on my 1995 F150. I purchased a ORU reverse shackle kit and have some 1995 F250 Springs. I was wondering exactly where to set the rear hanger for the shackle in relation to the cab mount as well as where to drill holes for Front hanger?

    Any measurements you used or should I use a blum bob too? Any help on this is much appreciated. Thanks!

    you seem to be the resident expert at the crossover steering upgrade for a 75ish f250. I am converting to rockwell axles. I need to run a crossover steering. can I just turn the stock pitman arm so it faces backwards, then run it to the passenger side?
