1966-77 Bronco Heim Steer Combo Kit 3.5" Lift
Do you have a 3.5" Lift? This is the heim steer combo kit you've always wanted for your Early Bronco. We've taken our years of Early Bronco experience and formulated the best steering setup for your Bronco. This kit is tailored for a 3.5" Lift and will take your experience up a notch.
Important note: If you already have a James Duff 3.5" lift we already include our track bar drop bracket with those kits. It is imperative that you use a stock pitman arm with this system. A drop pitman arm will not work.
This entire system as laid out will save you $80.00 versus if you bought everything separately.

Q: Why is the Track Bar Drop Bracket Required for the 66-75 but not the 76-77?A:
In 1976 the Ford Bronco stock track bar frame bracket was elongated to enhance the factory steering geometry, because of this, no additional drop bracket is required on '76 & '77.
