66-96 Ford Broncos - Early & Full Size

Origanal ride height?

Recommended Posts

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.
