I just bought a 1990 bronco xlt. The front end is /---\. Ive seen the post on some of the fixes like springs. But is there a basic how to on fixing this. It drives ok it doesn't pull but it shakes at about 65mph. I'm poo (so poor I can't aford the "r") but don't want to do somthing that will make this worse...
Lots of post here that you can search. I don't think you are talking about toe. Positive camber is when the top of the tire leans out negative Camber is when it leans in Tis happens as the springs settle/get old. I just fixed this on my wifes explorer. Rather than aligning it to account for the springs settling. I unbolted the springs and put a spacer under them. I also put a donut in between the coils. The donuts I got at Azone and the spacers cut out from 1/4 inch aluminum plate with a jig saw.
My next door neighbor used spring spacers, looked like two bolts through push plates that went between the coils and you cranked them apart lifting the vehicle. Easy/cheap but these may not stay in if you 4wheel and place much strain at the point they contact the spring. He uses his bronco II on the street mostly.
On the cheap may work for a while but new springs would be best with an alignment job.
those bolt thingy's you are talking about make for a rough ride also before i lifted mine i used a solid hard rubber spacer that went all the way around the coil i put it on the very bottom of the coil and it helped alittle
I want to be able to take it off road so changing out the springs sounds the best way to go. I have a rancho lift (dont know the size since I didn't install it)with rancho rs500 shocks. Where is the best place to pick these springs [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] up.
Yes, that's right they at least used to make several lifts, including a 3" front/3" rear, and the heavy duty 4"/3", which is what I had purchased. This was the lift recommended if you were doing a heavy front bumper, winch, or plow.
