lowering

would it be a good idea to lower my bronco? she will be driven mostly on road. i was thinking about 2" coil springs and 3" leaf springs or hangers but i am on a $200 budget.
i need an alignment so i want to do this before i get one...

92' Ford Bronco, 351, all black bumpers and grille, 2/3 lowering 93' lightning rims and engine mods coming soon...

Oh, jeez...

This is NOT a question or topic you should bring up on THIS billboard - the name of this site is "OFF-ROAD.com": If we don't like the stock height, we go UP. You've heard of "Don't ask - don't tell"? Well, if you do this to your truck, don't mention it here and don't post pics showing it.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]That way we can all stay friends. Otherwise you may end up here.

Re: Oh, jeez...

Okay,
I have to say that the Suburban and Expedition on that site, Steve, looked pretty good. I liked the way that they looked. The other ones were terrible looking, and I don't get at all. But, the Suburban and Expedtion were nice. However. Lowering a 4x4 Bronco? What's up with that? I have nooo idea why you would want to do that, dude. Do that Bronco justice and put a lift kit on it.

Here we go! Down the slippery slope!

In reference to the Expedition, I have to admit that I've wondered how those air shock systems the lowriders use to make their cars jump would do on a 4x that needed to get over a rock, out of a mudhole, or act as an anchor for winching... Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..........

Re: lowering

Steve,
In case you thought I was referring to that stupid ass dancing Expedition, I was not! (lol) Nah, it is the black Expedition, and the red Tahoe that I think look good. Laters.

Re: Air Suspension

Yeah, I was imagining a Bronco/Jeep/etc. with some monster meats and a heavily scarred paint job in that position on a trail - lifting a tire over a boulder or crevasse. It seems like it would do wonders for an otherwise stock suspension.

Re: Air Suspension

Lots of rock crawlers have airbags and hydraulics to help them flex. There's even an older suburban on 6 foot tall tractor tires lifting one of them several feet in the air in the March/01 Off Road Mag on page 91. It looks very odd until you realize what's going on. I've been disappointed with that magazine lately, though..it's mainly just show trucks and even some street trucks. Kinda sad...like that TNN Trucks! show.

It's a Jeep thing? My Bronco thing will run over your little Jeep thing.

Re: Air Suspension

Hell yeah, that TNN show sucks ass bigtime. And Off-road used to be cool as sh!t. I have backissues 5 years old that are filled with so much more content than these new ones. A few months back I was in a hurry, and I stopped in to grab a mag, saw one of those mags and bought it. Turns out all they were centering on was "2 wheel drive off road trucks". I mean give me a ****in break! What kinda off road truck is two wheel drive. Made me sick, and I doubt I'll waste my money on that mag again.
