Default 1989 Ford Bronco

This was a project I picked up but thought I should fix my jeep before I took on anymore projects. Just picked up last month and havent really done much to it. Has worn out 35" Ground Hogs. 302 Fuel injected. Topper. Starts up no problem. Passenger door hard to open. Typical Rust of a 20 year old truck. Has death wobble probally from bad ball joints. Doesnt seem to leak any fuild. Ujoints seem to be good. Cracked windsheild (call around brand new OEM 50bucks) Would not drive home. $850 OBO

it has dealth wobble. It seems to drive ok till about 30. I tore the front apart and it needs ball joints and maybe a couple tie rod ends. I put on new pads ans new axle ujoints all the way around. The drive shafts all seem to be good, and the bearings rolled smooth.

Ok bump I put on some radial 31 inch tires and aluminum wheels and it drives down the road good. It dwn shifts a little firm but not bad. Runs great starts every time. Its goin to tough truck in traverse next week then to the scrap yard or sell for 400 so if you want it before we jump it then get it now.
