Full width dana 44 and 9" help adive ect

I have a 93 ranger that i want to turn into a trail truck with some street use also. I have an efi 302 i wanna put in it and probably a c4? im not sure? i also have 79 bronco dana 44 and 9" axles. Im planing on probably running 37's most likely. Does anyone have any pictures of full width rangers and advice. Im also kind of thinking about going leaf sprung instead of coils? pros and cons? all help would be great thanks a lot guys

wow almost exactly what i had planned with a ranger. i would like to see how this goes. i wasnt sure if i was going to do leaf springs or a triangulated 4 link. the leafs would be easier but not as much articulation and adjustability. what are you going to do with the steering?

Leafs are a huge wast of time imo but if set up right they can work ok but if i were you i would run extended radius arms and coils your trucks already set up for coils so why change it. sas on our year trucks are very simple imo i did mine in around a month most of the time that was waiting on parts to ive seen them done in a full weekend there is nothing hard about it especially with radius arms look through my sas thread and ex radius arm thread lots of pics and info for that year truck.

yeah just do radius arms with good coils and you'll be set.
