Explorer axle swap help
Well my explorer axle is coming along. Saturday I am going to be welding on the shock tabs and spring perches. My plan for the spring perches is to bolt the axle to the driveshaft and leaf springs then tack weld the perches. Then I will take it out and finish welding the perches.
Now for the question. First I need new u-bolts. I don't have any. What size u-bolts will I need? I am looking for measurement because I know of a spring shop where I can get them cheap.
If I were to leave the proportioning valve from my ranger in there would it cause me problems or is it required I swap in the valve from an explorer? I ask because I didn't realize this when I went for the brake parts so I didn't get it. I am afraid the explorer that I got the parts from is gone so I will need to find another doner.
