body lift or susp?limited slipes?
I have done a lot of searching on this, but havent found a answer for my situation.I want to run 33 ats on my 96 bronco,I use as DD and pull trailers on occasion.Should i just get the body lift and a good set of shocks and go the cheap route?I also thought of a 2.5 or 4 inch lift with the hopes of maybe making the bronco handle better on the road.Will extended rad.arms help with road manners?Im sure you already figured out i dont really wheel this machine except a snow filled ditch once and a while.I also thought of putting in a rear l.s. when i change to 4.11 gears,are any of them worth putting in? I had a auburn once,what a waste or money that was.I have thought about a trutrac,is it worth it? thanks,Bo

A 4" lift would probally be too high for 33s w/ 35s it would look good.
If u run the 33s go w/ a 2". I think the 2.5 has all the brackets which is a lotta work when u can get a 1.5 or 2" coil spring or a coll spring spacer. Would also be the cheapest route. Add a leaf in the back if u tow heavy, or else just a little block for lift. I would run them with the stock wheels or 15x8s at the most.
A better set of shocks could help, but the stockers should work fine.
Not sure about a l.s. but any is better than the stock one.

For a primary street runner you can run 33's stock. You may have some slight interferance with the front bumper which can be remedied using some spacers. The rubbing comes into play when you articulate. Other than rubbing the radius arms that is.
