Okay, I have read all the topics I could, but I still need some help. I have a '94 Bronco and I want to run 37" tires but I don't think they will fit with just a 6" lift...right? If not, can I put 2" spacers under the 6" lift coil springs or is it better to run a 2" body lift and the 6" suspension lift? Or maybe there is an 8" suspension lift that I have never heard of???

I don't do any serious offroading, mainly just snow and gravel logging roads, so will the stock suspension handle 37" tires or is this asking to much?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Do NOT put spacers under 6" lift springs....too unstable.
here is a link to a great thread. It has info on what gears you would need when going to bigger tires. http://broncozone.co...indpost&p=64103
If you are not running off road or doing rock climbing, why do you need the truck so high? As they get higher they are more unstable and harder to drive, because of raising the center of gravity.
( it is fun watching short people trying to get in)
Good Luck

like ron said another issue I don't think you realized is that you will need to change your gear ratio to run 37's . probably to a 4.56 or so which means you may also need to replace the gaskets, crush sleeves and spacers in your axles to set your ring gear and pinion spacing.
