  2. How much hp can the ford 7.5 handle?

    From what I've seen around, even if the 7.5 is rated for a lower hp than the 390 I'm going for, using an auto trans helps soften the shock or stress on the diff as opposed to the manual transmission or something along those lines. Have any knowledge on that?

  7. 84 2wd Leaf Springs

    I have an 84 2wd ranger with an soa setup and they are as flat as a pancake and I don't think that's how they're supposed to be. Anyone know the best site to go to get new springs that keep the stock ride height?
