You didn't mention the year, or other pertinent info on your Bronco, but generally you would most likely need a camber bushing.

The shocks would depend on what the primary use of your truck is.

If you are planning to install 2" leveling coils in the frontend, then you will likely need new, adjustable camber bushings. There is a sticky or pinned topic on page 1 of the 80-96 forum thaqt explains the geometry of the bronco TTB frontend and the problems with lifting kits. you will need new shocks designed for a 0-2" lift kit, and I would recommend one of the better offroad brands such as Rancho, Explorer Pro Comp, Superlift or Skyjacker over any of the cheapies from the local parts store. You will also need a new frontend alignment after installing the leveling coils, so try to find a shop that has knowledge of the Ford Bronco suspension, JSM84

I did a 2" spring lift all the way around and could not get the camber to go even close to flat (tires wear evenly there) with the Ford normal bushing type alignment bushings. I purchased (don't remember where but they can be found on line) some drop brackets (bolted in) with Chevy type cam adjusters for the proper camber settings. The caster is still set by the ford bushings. Drives the alignment shop guys nuts and takes a couple of shots at it to get right but worth it. Tires wear perfect. With my quick steer ratio gearbox I found a 2" drop pitman arm necessary to correct the slight "wandering" from the steering tie rod linkage angle change with the 2" lift. Hope this helps someone!
