Has anyone out ther swapped in a solid axle from a 70's ford into an 80's ford 1/2ton. can you let me know what kind of problems wher had and if there was any additional lift with just using the stock coils . I am thinking of doing this in my 83 bronco.

I will be doing the same at the end of summer. I know a guy who has done it in his ranger. looks good. And I read in a magazine it gives you 4" lift. But thats a bit much I think. But yea what kind of axle you going to throw under??

I put a '70 Bronco Dana 44 in the front of my Exploder. It's definitely doable. I had Al at 4offrd do mine. Great job, looks factory.

Cheers

I was thinking of putting in a solid 44 if i can find one complete with radius arms. And then do a shackle reverse in the rear if the solid axle gives enough lift
