COIL SPRING SPACERS

Hey all, I am looking for coil spring spacers that will lift my Bronco up another inch or so. I have a 1990 with a 2.5 inch suspension lift with the new coil springs and drop brackets. I am not looking for the spacers that fit inside the coil (like the little rubber blocks or those metal bolt adjustable ones all of which can be bought at auto parts stores) Instead, I need the coil spacers that actually space the coil up or down from its seat...in other words I need a coil spacer that fits either above or below the spring. Does anyone make these for Broncos? I know they can be bought for jeeps and dodges. I need some for my Bronco. thanks

Re: COIL SPRING SPACERS

>>>I have never heard of any spacers being made for the TTB frontend. I always assumed no one made them because of the affect it would have on the camber of the wheels. Did you buy a kit that has dual purpose pivot brackets-holes for 2.5 and 4" kit? If you did you could have a machine shop spin up some billet aluminum spacers and then move the axles to the next set of holes. Although, you may be able to get the camber in with just the bushing since it is only 1" you want. I have also seen people drop the spring towers in custom suspension set-ups where the aftermarket did offer enough lift for the mods. You could probably buy the spacers seperately that are made for the Ram-the srings on those look similar in diameter. Good luck to you. Later.

Re: COIL SPRING SPACERS

Thanks. As far as camber adjustment goes, my axle drop brackets actually have adjustable camber bolts on them, where the axle pivot bushing is,that work great. This way, I do not have to into the upper ball joint. If I do need more correction than the camber bolts can give me, I figure I will go into the upper ball joints and correct the camber from there. About the coil spacers...It seems that when I wasnt looking for them I would hear about them. The ones that people would use to level their trucks again when putting a winch on, or a heavy front bumper. Now that I am lookin...I cant find 'em!!! Thanks again!

You can try 4 wheel parts wholesalers. I don't know if all of the stores
have them but the store in Santa Ana, CA said they have them.

Superlift sells the spacers you are looking for. They recommend not spacing more than 1" total or camber, etc cannot be fully corrected.
