Attn Juice

Hey Juice what set up are you running in the rear I dont think the shackle flip is going to work for me since I plan on doing a lot of towing and if I remember right you are running a block and add a leaf.....right if so how much lift did it gett you and how does it ride on the street.
The bronco currently sets really level 371/2 front and 37 3/4 rear so I need to go up the same front and rear when I do the 4 in lift [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]

Re: Attn Juice

Hey guys, sorry, flat out busy lately, don't mean to ignore...

Burned, wish I could report on them....I hope nobody works for the USPS, but, I have not even seen them yet. I hate the USPS!!! [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]

OK calm now..sorry, don't want to offend anyone. Maybe once they have taken it out of "cordon" and decided it is not a bomb, they will finish delivering to me. I will probably have to call them today or tomorrow to see if they can track it.

Anyway, 80B....I am using the 4" lift from Rancho with the newer style bent radius arms. In the rear, I have dual add-a-leafs on each side. They are full length and replace the no.2 longest leaf in the pack, so I actually have 6 leaves per side. They do have a slighly higher spring rate, but I find them perfectly acceptable for trail use, and also one of the better ways to gain lift without sacrificing ability to tow safely.

Now, call it whatever ya want....BNorm says it's inchitis, but I am currently about to add 3/4" of spacers in the front and a custom 1" lift block for the rear. The blocks, if the USPS ever deliver them, is tapered and replaces the factory block, and is just 1" taller. It should also never crack.

I want just a bit of rake toward the front (rear higher), so that is why the slight variance with this latest project, because currently I sit level, which means 4" front, 3" maybe a tad more rear.

Re: Attn Juice

Clarification: There are 2 add a leafs on each side, and they would be a different part number because there is a couple inches difference in overall length, so they mesh with the springs longest-to-shortest idea.

Advantages: longer leafs give more overall support sooner in the compression cycle. They are not as prone to sagging problems, and tend to work with the stock pack better because a single add leaf needs more arch, and tends to lose that arch more quickly. You may also see singles that are thicker than stock, these are not, thus overall ride quality is excellent.
