Lift It?

Alright I'm trying to figure out a cheap easy way to lift my 89 Bronco and I figured this is the best place to ask anyone have any ideas? I'm sure you do. let em fly.

That's about the cheapest you're gonna get on a Bronco.


The way the front end is setup, you're going to have to go with a kit or at least quite a bit of fab. The back end is easy and the same as most other 4x4s.

I would ditch the ttb and swap in a true straight axle. If you do the work yourself and get a good deal on a axle this would be the cheapest and in my opinion the best option.

I agree. From what i have read that TTB stuff up front is not the best for off road. But if you decide to change out the front go with D60.

I'm a fan of everything in moderation and in due time. My stocker on 31's can do some amazing stuff. Mind you, it's the wife's primary transportation and I don't get too stupid. The TTB has some benefits that blow a straight axle away. Your turning radius is much tighter, it flexes out and stays flat better, and the coil springs are a lot more controlled and smoother than a leaf spring.

If I were to wheel this thing hard, I'd cut the heck out of the fenders and put on bigger tires. I'd want to leave the suspension alone for as long as I could until it gave up the ghost. Putting anything less than a 60 with a 4 link would be going backwards. The cost to do that, changing the gears in back or replacing with a 9" with a locker to match (plus lift), and stretching the driveshafts would quickly eclipse what a lift kit would run.
