« on: February 18, 2013, 03:32:16 PM »
picked this up recently. now thinking about lifts. any opinions on Bronco Graveyard (BDS) compared to Rough Country in as far as ride quality, parts quality etc, im talking replacment rear springs too.
thanks

Bob




looks good in pics but has dents and hood paint is bad. no rust though.

first thing was changing out auto hubs and repacked wheel bearings


then fixed 3 power window motor gears
and window weather stirpping

I think 4" inch lift with 35's is a minimum for anything but street use. I had to trim the front bumper on mine to fit 33" s with no lift.

I liked mine that had 37" tires but it also had a solid axle conversion

Blair that looks great. tell me about your SAS. i belong to FSB for years and have read the SAS's until my eyes were red. i have  79 RA brackets, arms, springs. do not have axle or coil buckets.

IF was to SAS do i use the stock RA's and brackects? for say a 4" over stock lift?
thanks

unfortunately i bought it already done. but from what i could tell they used a bolt on drop bracket for radius arms like the ones you get with a lift kit on 79 f150 4X4 and welded them to the frame. I believe the axle was also a 79 Dana 44 disc brake front end. the only other fabricated part appeared to be track arm bracket. all of the original independent brackets were removed and frame was cleaned up and painted. Justafordguy may remember something else but i am not sure.
