    Try 2WD F250 springs. They worked great in my F150.

    I went with 3" lift springs on my 79 Bronco. They have worked well for the last two seasons carrying a Meyer 8.5 - The only downfall is during the summer months without the plow mounted, the front is considerably higher than the rear.

    8.5 On a Bronco?! Whew! As for the rear get the springs re-arced like I did.

    I went with airlift airbags on my 78, about half the time I had a Meyer Hw8' with wings on it
