Hek, I think it looked pretty good when you got it
Thank you. It did. It sat for 10 years without being driven daily on the road. 2009 sticker on the license plate.

What the pics don't show you was there was a small surface rust starting on the roof and Hood.

been doing it like that since about 89. relocate/ship rad arm brackets back a lil and 150 arms really make use of travel.
How much longer are f150 rad arms ? Do I find one from 1980-96? Does it matter if it's from a Dana 44 ?

My credo
it is easier to fix and understand than "her"
4 or so inches iirc.....e series arms may be a bit more...i have used them both on various applications.

the shock scenario is different between them as well depending on year...


the 150 style shock bracket can be drilled and mounted to the side if needed to dial in shock fitup...

Walked around the auto parts store and thought this would be best before going offroading

The f150 spring had a smaller opening on top because it was tangicaled and not circular. Which way would it have gone in properly ?

they are all tailed. the 150 springs have a larger diameter.... 5.5 to 6.25 depending on actuals.... the ranger coil is smaller od. generally 5 in.
