Product Code: FSB SAS 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.
