Default HP 44 leaf sprung

i bought a hp44 out of a f-250 that is leaf sprung and im curious if im gonna have the room to move the spring perches in enough to make it work on my 1992 ranger. if not would anyone be willing to trade me this axle for a coil sprung axle. axle is complete except leafs. 3.55 gears. if i can use it i will but i guess jeeps are easier to install them into. any info would be great thanks

I have a hp44/9" combo with a rear four link in my ZJ....but I paid someone to set it up, as I have no fab skills.

I just bought RE rear long arms from a TJ/ZJ kit as they cost about the same as building your own. Used RE 3.5" front ZJ coils in the rear. If you need prices on any of those arms or coils contact Pat at www.Ironmanoffroad.com and tell him I sent ya.

couple of photos of my 9" setup

here's a few pics from my rebuild a few months ago

tacked together:



finished product:



just used a little guesswork, some brackets from Poly and BTF and went with it. I've been really happy with how it works (3 trips so far)

I actually changed my lower link crossmember after it bent (didnt strengthen it well enough).....I used another pc of DOM and lowered it about 2 inches to give my links more separation (and because my DS was hitting the crossmember:))....put 2 support bars right behind the links brackets that tie into my t-case skid for strength and its been working sweet..

what coils did you end up using with that setup looks like you are ready to tear up the rocks with that thing. looks awesome by the way. thank you for your advice.
