I would give it a try the drop I beam brackets should keep your camber in alignment the only problem is it might throw your caster out of alignment with using those drop radius arm brackets. caster is the forward and rearward position of your front tires . I would give it a try the coils, it's easy to change front coils on fords if it does not work.good luck
I agree. Just pick a weekend when you don't plan on driving it, and try it out. If it doesn't work, put it back in the 2.5" holes, and either scrounge up the radius arm brackets you need or sell the 4" coils
Holy sketchy fords batman
I wouldn't even try this potential accident. the top ball joint is to be behind the bottom ball joint(caster). Chairs have wheels called 'casters' on them, VERY similar to the way ball joints work. If the axle is rotated forward and the top balljoint becomes forward of the bottom ball joint.......... ever tried to roll a chair wheel(caster) backwards??
Stock the balljoints are only 2-4*(?) from being straight up & down.
The 2-4* is what pulls the wheels back to center.
Just make a 2"(or so) spacer bracket for the radius arms.
I got some 4" coils if ya want em for $75(trailmaster). Flexed pretty good for a TTB, but wanted the strength for a future motor swap.
I got a whole front end sittin on the floor(3.73&3.45). No drop brackets tho. For best handling characteristics(and tire wear), use the brackets, or add to what you have(same thing in the end). I got a drop pitman arm as well, yur gunna need it if ya go 4".
Good luck on your choice.
