Comments: hey i have a few questions about the bracket for the front leaf springs i was wondering how long is that bracket and are those stock f350 springs if you could email me at firstname.lastname@example.org please and thank you
Comments: I did the same exact 60 SAS on my '94 F-150. I stoughtened up the front of my frame right in front of the core support by welding on angle iron and then built a rect. tube bumper and dropped my shackle mounts from there. Everything seems to work fantastic. It's impressed many on the trails!
Comments: to do my S.A.S. i bought a 89 f-350 donor truck. used both axles, dana 60 king pin front. sterling 10.25 rear. i used the front 1 ton springs from the donor. i used my stock rear leaf springs.
a good friend, made the front driveshaft and spring hangers. a few mod"s here and there. but basically the suspension from the f-350 is on my bronco
Comments: Hey i have a question and was hoping you might be able to help me. I have an 89 bronco xlt, it has a 5.8 engine and an 8.8 rearend with a c-6 tranny. It also has a 6 inch lift on 35 12.50, i recently started hauling a four wheeler trailer and have decided i need more power. Right now i have 3.55 gears, i was thinking about running 4.10 but just want to be sure i make the best decesion before i put the money in it. How dose your truck do when you haul with it or on the highway. Dose it sound really whiney? thank you for your time and help.....your bronco is bad ass :)
Comments: 4.10 gears with 35 inch tires are closer to stock. if you went with 4.56 or 4.88 you would have more pep. but your m.p.g. will suffer. i am planning on installing 5.13 gears because i plan on bigger tires. i tow a trailer also and still get good m.p.g.
Comments: what do u mean buy saying more pep if someone went to 4.56 or 4.88 gears?i also have a 92 ford bronco on a 4 inch rancho lift with 33x12.50 on 15x10 wheels and not sure what gears to choose. near future is a SAS and a bigger tire(36 to 38 tire)it also has the 5.0L 302 V8 with the E40D tranny. but im not planning on a leaf sprung fron SAS. going for a coil spring.
Comments: your stock bronco has 3.56 gears in now, with 31" tires. when you install bigger tires you notice that when you accelerate its a lil sluggish. you need to install bigger gears to take it back to the stock tire/gear ratio.
Comments: That is one awsome Bronco! I have a 95' just did the SAS up front only with a D44 from a 79 doner also took the 9 w/a tru hi 9 -4:56 & detroits the more common stuff. But yours blows me away! Again nice job!
Comments: i just bought a 83 bronco from a buddy of mine it got a 6"lift with a 5" body life with some 15x39.50x15 super swampers it got a ton of power what would be a good size tire to drop down to i want to improve gas mpg
Comments: i have a question for you Jason, i have no clue what size gears i have in my axles but i am running 33s12.50R15LT M/T Baja MTZ's and 15x10 wheels on a 4 inch rancho suspension lift. if were to plan on going to a 36 or 38 inch tire what gears would you recemend buying?
Comments: hey dean in the first pic, that was right after i did the s.a.s. 10" with the 3" body lift. so about 13"
you probally have 3.56 gears stock. if you plan on going with bigger tires i would install 4.56 or 4.88 gears...
Comments: Nice truck! im currently doing my 92 Bronco over using a 79 donor truck, but im running into some trouble with the width of the straight axles, its going to be a tight squeeze with the wider bronco frame. did you run into any trouble like that with the 89 straight axles.
Comments: no problems at all. i believe 1980-1996 bronco,f150,f250,f350 all have the same frame width.....it was very easy. but i know some people dont like front leafs, thats why they get the straight axle from a later year, to run coils. is that what your doing?
Comments: no, im running leaf springs up front. but we got a 79 donor and it seems to be a lot less wider then my original independent so idk if im going to run into any trouble. i was thinking about getting a donor truck of a late 80s like you did yourself. but yea im going to run a 6 inch suspension with a 3 body and im cutting the quarter panels and front fenders to be able to ride bigger tires with less of a lift, and im swapping out my 351 for a 428 that im currently rebuilding. its a project but when im done it will be the way i want it to be.
Comments: I have a 90 full size eddie bauer that I am almost ready to do a sas on. Putting a locked 9'' in the rear and a limited slip 44 up front with 5.13's... I am also curious to know what you did for your ABS front and rear along with the computer stuffs... thanks. email@example.com
Comments: hey zack, i bought a 1989 f350 and used it as a donor for my S.A.S. so i installed the rear sterling 10.25 because it is has the same v.s.s. plug and its also 1ton, it bolted right in place of the 8.8 and plugged in. you have to tap the 9" to except the v.s.s. as for the front. i dont have a.b.s. anymore because the 1989 f350 did not come with it. but i installed the brake booster and master cylinder from it. i stop on a dime. i could not get the 42" tires to skid no matter how hard i press the petal. but i also have rear disc brakes. hope this helps. my a.b.s. light stays on....
Comments: Nice Bronco I'm doing the exact same swap on my 1994 F150 with a Dana 60 and 10.25. I was wondering how you came out with 14" of lift because I see the 3 inch body and 5" hanger from sky. So I'm wondering where you got the rest of the 6" of lift?
Comments: tires.....i saw a stock bronco about same year in a parking lot. took a few measurements. body lines, head lights, fender wells. cant remember the exact numbers but the difference between mine and stock was 14 inches.......
Comments: Ok I also want to run the 42" Iroks so do you think running either the 4" or 6" front lift springs and I already have a 3" body and the 5" hanger would be to high for the tires? And also how did you fix the angle on your rear shackles on the front springs? Do you have any links to a forum where you posted your build or anything or more pics you can send to me through email?
Comments: I plan on doing this SAS swap on my 91 F150.The Rear i think i can handle no problem. but for the Front I should be able to go to any 1980-96 Gas F250 + 4x4 and grab everything i'll need axle hangers, shackles and leafs right? and will i need the drive shafts off of it or use the one i have? my last question is can i use my existing power steering equip on this? If you could give me any tips for things i may run into i'd appreciate it. you have a badass bronco though
Comments: hi jason i have an 89 bronco would like to do same front set up could you give me the measurments for the front shackle set up and what shackle frame bracket did you useon the rear of front leaves to mount to frame any info would be awesome and your rig is sick dude thanks scott firstname.lastname@example.org
Comments: hey had some questions on the SAS, if you did another bronco like it again would you stick with the leaf springs up front or go with coils? I'm current in the process of rebuilding my 92 with 95 f350 1 tons and i have been told that coils are easier but I think I want to stick with the leafs, i was just wondering what you opinion is or if you have any advice on how you aligned the front end. also did you have a lot of trouble with the gauges and the computer that ran off of the rear housing?
Comments: I LOVE Your Bronco Its AWESOME Looking Im looking for either Dana 60s OR Rockwell 2.5 Tons for my Ranger I LOVE Your Bronco I wish I could find a Bronco like yours But I probably could NEVER Afford one But anywho SWEET Truck
Comments: Hi, I'm Jamie I have a 95 seriuosly wanting to SAS this bad boy is leafs easier than coils? was thing about getting the front end off a late 70s for the swap but fell in love with the way yours turned out would like your advice. Also have a friend with 10 inch lift leafs he will sell me I want to run 42s would that be enough? my email is email@example.com thanks for your time.
Comments: I've got a dana44 I like the hanger system you used, is it a sky mfg or what brand is it looking every where Please let me know and did you have to modify the frame up front for it? email me some info Please it's firstname.lastname@example.org thanks for your time
