Ted Nugent Project Phoenix Stacey David Gearz TV Fullsize FSB Ford Big Bronco Solid Axle Swap Dana 60 Duff Long Radius Arms
Nugent/Stacey David Fullsize Bronco Solid Axle Swap Info

The Ted Nugent Project Phoenix Bronco featured on Stacey David's Gearz TV was a challenge in that it came with a lot of previous work done to it along with the shear bulk of the Currie Rock Jock Dana 60 Axles. The truck is running 42" Iroks which Stacey decided on after seeing them on our Hi Ho Loco. The truck also has a 4" body lift which allowed us to do a few things differently than we would on production version of the parts.

Since then we have also done a Dana 44 Swap under Bronco Driver Magazine's Project Full Force and our own 1996 Fullsize Bronco. Full Force was a little more like what most people are doing and we revised a few of the parts to reflect this. We aren't selling this in a kit form because there are too many variables as to what people want or need due to different lift heights. Here is what parts we used on the front end of Full Force: Full Force had a BDS 4" TTB Lift Kit utilizing add-a-leafs in the rear. The Bronco was sitting a little rear high when we started. We ended up with approximately 5 1/8" lift on the front (these coil towers sit lower than factory buckets). Right now it is sitting a little nose high but it doesn't have a winch on the winch bumper.
Early Bronco 5.5" Coils #5109 $170
HD Coil Buckets #5110 $125 For spring steel frames require drilling countersunk holes for mounting. We used 1/2" x 1 1/2" Flat Socket Caps, 1/2" flat washers and Nyloc Nuts. The placement and number of bolts will vary depending on bucket placement and lift height and if the end user is going to stretch the wheelbase.
Lower Retainers #5120 $75 If using EB coil springs, no modification necessary. If using a larger wire diameter coil (like 78-79 springs), it will require either stripping a little of the coating or opening up the retainer loop a touch.
Stage 3 Long Travel Tubular Arms #5351 $779
Bolt on Dual Shock Mounts #5225 $125
12" Travel Shocks #8114 $36x4=$144 Taller lifts could use our 15" travel #8120 which run $45 each SAS Track Bar Bracket 1980-96 FSB #5415 $99.95 Designed to bolt into the stock bolts and engine crossmember. Requires drilling holes in front engine cross member and it will need to be trimmed in order to clear track bar on up travel.
Adjustable Track Bar #5408 $159.95
Heim Joint Steering System #5645 $389.95 Built to measurements as lengths will vary depending on axle used. C-bushings Depends on lift height (we used 4° on this lift) $39

NOTE: On our '96 We did NOT use our coil springs. We used 5" Deaver coils and leaf springs. The softer upper wraps of our Early Bronco coil springs just do not have enough weight capacity to hold a Fullsize front end without touching, which does not give optimum performance.

On the rear of Ted Nugent's Project Phoenix: #5111 EB Coil Spring Towers, Tall, pair $125 #5120 HD Lower Coil Retainer Cups, pr $75 #8120 15" Long Travel Duff 70/30 Shocks, $45 each x4 #5360 4-Link Kit Upper & Lower Links Custom Frame Mounts for Upper and Lower Links Prototype Coil Springs approximately 5-51/2" lift Early Bronco 4link Shock Mount Cross member made taller & wider to fit FSB Custom Truss & Lower Shock Mounts to work on the Currie Rock Jock Axle

Note: We do not have plans to make a production 4 link kit for the 78 and up Broncos or F150's. There are far too many variables to make this a bolt/weld on kit. This includes frame reinforcement, ride height and shock mounts with a full body intact.

Our Price: $36.00

The 8110 shock has 9.25" Travel with a collapsed length of 15" and extended of 24.25"

We've designed suspension systems for Fords for years, looking to fine tune them even further, we custom designed our own automatically adjusting shocks. They feature:

10 Stage Auto Speed Adjusting
30% Compression, 70% Rebound
Multi Viscosity, All Weather Fluid
Internal Urethane Bumpstop
1 3/8" High Temperature Iron Piston
5/8" Hardened, Chromed Piston Rod

Solid Steel Leaf Spring Shims Wedges 1966-77 Classic Early Ford Bronco Jeep Suzuki Ranger
Solid Steel Leaf Spring Shims
Our Price: $49.00

Improper pinion angle can lead to driveline vibration and premature u-joint & cv-joint failure. Not all 3 1/2” lifts will require a pinion adjustment but going up to 5 1/2” will result in a driveline angle that will need corrected. These 2 1/2" wide steel shims bolt on to the bottom of your leaf packs with longer center pins included.  To determine the proper amount we recommend taking measurements before and after installing your suspension lift.  The optimum angle is 2°. For more measuring info, please call.
Drop Pitman Arm Bronco II Ranger Explorer Fullsize Big Steering Lift Linkage Suspension F-150 Full size
Drop Pitman Arm, Bronco II, Ranger, 91-94 Explorer, 80-96 Fullsize Bronco
Our Price: $64.75

Not all lifted vehicles require a drop pitman arm: this is why we don't include them in all of our standard Suspension Systems. If, after installing a lift, bump steer is exaggerated (the steering wheel jerks to one side when encountering a bump) or you note excessive angle or wearing of the drag link, a drop pitman arm will help improve the situation. This works for rigs with up to 4" of lift on 1984-90 Bronco II, 1983-97 Ford Ranger, 1991-94 Explorer,1980-96 Fullsize FSB Bronco, and 1980-96 F-150. Comes gloss black powder coated.
SAS Track Bar Bracket 1980-96 Ford Bronco Sold Axle Swap Dana 44 Dana 60
SAS Track Bar Bracket 1980-96 Bronco
Our Price: $99.95

When doing a solid axle swap in a 1980-96 Fullsize Bronco, you will need a Track Bar Bracket to attach your track bar to in order to center the axle under the front end. Our design is a simple all bolt on installation using existing holes in the frame and by drilling two additional holes in the engine cross member. Made of 5/16” thick laser cut steel with 3/4” Track Bar Mounting hole for use with heims & spacers or large bushings. Black powder coated and includes hardware. Track Bar sold separately,
Classic Traction Bar 1966-77 Early Ford Bronco, 78 & up Bronco & F150
Classic Traction Bar 1966-77 Bronco, 78 & up Bronco & F150
Our Price: $119.95

Simple in design and function, attach above the springs so they don 't catch on trail obstacles. Will not fit with overloads. Comes with blue polyurethane bushings. Tig welded traction bars, all parts come black coated.

Traction Bars hold the axle in place during acceleration and stopping. This improves traction and directional stability. Especially on raised vehicles. Overall,they help eliminate shackle and driveshaft problems during sudden stops, hill climbing and rough trails. They also reduce the chance of broken springs due to rough terrain with heavy loads. Excellent for Broncos used in the sand dunes or for heavy mud bogging. They help to control wheel hop and axle wrap (the Bronco “clunk ”). When used with our double shocks and high strength U-bolts they will reduce broken u-joints.

Axle Wrap: The rear axle rotating in the U-bolts. Repeated axle rotation causes wear on the driveshaft, U-Bolts and axle housing.

Bronco “clunk”: Caused by the driveshaft snapping from extended to shortened position on acceleration due to the axle’s rotation.

Long Travel Traction Bar Fullsize Big Ford Bronco Torque Tamer 1978 1980
Long Travel Traction Bar 1978-96 Bronco
Our Price: $329.95
Sale Price: $299.00
You save $30.95!

Rock crawling, low-geared axles and high torque motors, soft long travel leaf springs —any combination of these can cause leaf spring damage and blow u-joints. Ordinary long tube, fixed mount traction bars limit travel as the rear axle cycles up and down because the axle also needs to move back and forth. Our new traction bar has a “V” frame designed center link for strength and utilizes a specially designed shackle to eliminate axle wrap. The bar runs between the mufflers, paralleling the drive line; protecting it. It also maintains proper u-joint and CV angles under power. The main bar attaches to a high clearance cross-member and shackle. The cross-member mounts up between the frame rails for maximum clearance and helps protect your CV joint and output shaft from trail obstacles.

Welding brackets to the housing is required.
•1/8” plate gussets in double sheer
•Cross member for C-channel Broncos
•Axle brackets for either 8.8” or 9" axles
•Double Sheer Axle Brackets
