Looking for lift in the rear 1989 Bronco II

Ok, I need some help here. Im going to be running 38's on my 89 BII, im trying to find the best way to get enough lift in the rear. Im not really interested in something like the Skyjacker lifted leafs due to I want something soft. And dont bother to mention blocks for the rear because that just isnt happening either.

Any thoughts on the 63" Chevy's? I know they are a sinch to mount to a Ranger but not so much on the BII. Im not looking to move the wheelbase in the rear, but Im just looking for any ideas that you may have.

ok, I can figure out my own suspension in the rear but I figured id ask those who have done it first hand. Sorry, I didnt realize this was for bolt on mods only.... I can ask elsewhere and get a smart [email protected]@ answer.

there is about a million different variables that you know about that is going to affect your decision/design. leaf springs are so common yet so limited in selectability that the only possible standard answer you are going to find is call a custom spring maker, which i suggested. also where did I say anything about bolt on mods only?

grow a sack, your acting like a chick. call alcan, give them your weights, height desire, vehicle model and intended purposes, purchase the springs they recommend and dont look back.

Handled well Gil. I thought you answered his question pretty nice. He's a wuss

To the OP, I suggest taking his advice. Either that, or I hear explorer springs with an add a leaf and 4" block works really well.

whats your deal, everything is a reason that you are somehow superior. i think youve got major self esteem issues finding trivial reasons to put people down. I thought you were leaving
