Re: ford suspension

78 - 79 Broncos have coils up front and leaves in the rear.
For trucks with leaves front and rear you have to go to the F-250 or higher GVW.
Yes you can lift them with add a leaves.Front and rear
Generally add a leaves give you 1-2". With replacement springs you can get any reasonable height you want.
Longer shackles? Only the rear axles use leave springs and longer shackles will actually lower the vehicle.

Did it go together nice and easy? You did something wrong.Will have to do it again.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]
