Default Budget Lift Bronco Started

Well some progress has been made on my budget 4" lift. Starting with my '96 all stock BKO currently has 33x12.50 Dunlops on it. I did some lurking and managed to find a Superlift 4" kit from Plowboy (Good Guy). I got all the brackets, front coils with new JBG spacers, JBG extended brake lines NIB, NIB BDS 4" Shocks with boots, 4" rear springs not sure if they will work the main leaf was cut and im not sure what they are, and 3 1/2" blocks with new ubolts and plates came also.. I plan on getting a new leaf pack from JBG anyways so thats not a big concern to me. I have a new BDS Swaybar drop bracket kit not sure if im going to keep it or just get rid of that SB. Also got a new drop pitman arm aswell. I just ordered a new hardware kit from Superlift as I got none with the kit, but for the $16 id rather start new anyways.


Future plans this spring are to ditch the stock radius arms, and build a set of long arms based off my buddies kit.

Heres what I'm starting with......

Little update my 4" turned into a 6" while I had it apart I threw in all new bushings, got rid of the sway bars, put in new u-joints, and did the ball-joints.

My camera took a dump so all I had is my phone which did not take very good pics at all. Heres what I got through the progress, and Ill have finished results later today as I gotta lift the rear today. Have to roll the 33's for a little while unless I can find somebody looking for a set of nice 33's and a little cash for some 35's. Pic of my buddy standing next to it, shes a little bigger than stock LOL

Yeah I guess I lucked out that this was a 6" kit and not a 4". A few days after I bought this thinking it was a 4" I wanted to go 6". No swaybars = little crazy. It rides SOOOOO much smoother than stock though I feel like I went from a dump truck to a brand new Denali as far as ride quality LOL
