Re: Rearching a TTB :BS:

Why do you have to re-arch the TTB beams? Can't you just adjust the amount of lift combined with some 2.75 degree cams?

If you wanna know more about re-arching the beams, do web searches for Autofab, Camburg Racing and Donahoe Racing.

How about Widening A 78 Bronco Dana 44 about 4 inches??
Also for those with SAS Did you retain the Front ABS? Could the 96 Steering knuckles/spinled be used in the 78 bronco?

Re: Rearching a TTB :BS:

Burned's right, the knuckles wont' swap. 4WABS is a headache and waste of time IMO.

Widening a D44 front live axle ain't gonna be cheap. I'd run wheels with different backspacing up front or spacers first. Of course a van is HEAVY... and most steel wheels that you can order w/custom backspacing are only rated at 1500lbs each.

Since you seem to have no aversion to spending money, you could always look into some custom forged alloy wheels. I'm sure Weld or Allied could hook you up. Maybe run 2" backspacing up front and standard (which is probably 4"?) in the rear. That'd put your front track width 4" greater

Is your van's track width really that much? Why do you need to widen a live D44?

Re: Rearching a TTB :BS:

The Thing Is that A TTB from a Bronco to the Van Requires The Right Side Passenger Shaft (inner axle) To be 2 inches Wider. I bought that From Currie For $200, that was for my first van. A van is very very heavy, A frend of mine Has a 1988 6.9L Diesel E350 with a D44 From a Bronco and it holds up, The Bronco D44 Solid axle is 4 inches narrow For the Van which will require them to be 4 inches Wider. I will Buy American Racing Baja's.
Thats is why in most SAS Conversions the Springs do not look straight up and down.
When you disable the ABS, When you have to change the Front Brakes Do you have To pump them? i know in abs that you do not have to do that. So help still. [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
