Hi wondering if anyone knows the original space between the axle tubes and frame for a 78 bronco? Mine definitely has lift springs and I want to replace them but not sure what lift they are.. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Hi Mo..,

Un-clear.., sounds like you're wanting to replace with the same size lift..?

What is there to gain from that..?  (BTW the newer engineered leafs do offer a softer ride if that's your goal)


I can't help except suggest doing the math by using your difference in tire size -- & roof height shown in

M5,s spec. sheet above..., against the height of your roof now.

---Jeep recovery unit---
1966 "U-13" Roadster...topless, doorless. (with rag top-n-doors)
200 cu.in. I-6 with 250 head.
$30 homemade HEI elect. ignition.
Pwr. steering, Hurst 3-speed floor shifter.
Split headers, dual exhaust, Holley 1 brl.
Stock axles...456's...32's ...Posi rear. 2.5 in. lift.
Full roll-cage, front.
65 gallons of fuel on board..!
70+ MPH cruise---15 MPG
6 EB's (& 11 early Land Cruisers) referbished & sold..
