    I need some help and opinions
    Hey guys,
    I've been thinking about lowering my ford bronco, the only problem is that it's 4wd. I've seen 3/5 drop kits with dropped I beams and shackles n hangers for the f-150 (same suspension) but, I don't know if they work on 4wd cars. Does anyone know if it's possible to lower a 4wd car, without making it 2wd. I drive the car 60 miles a day to school, and the winter is rough here, so it has to stay 4wd. I know a lot of people say it's stupid to lower a 4wd car, but the bronco isn't for off road, I have a jeep for that. What do you guys think about lowering a 4wd car? Here are some pics of what it's like, and what I would want to lower it to:
    here's stock


    here's lowered


    thanks guys

    do not do this! only make it 2wd to lower it.
    the bronco has i-beams and when you lower them down by just a spring...wow talk about bad camber!! and that makes the axle houseing really fucking close to the frame way to close for a goood ride.

    Mark,
    Thanks for the reply, that's what I was afraid of. I've seen some bronco IIs done too, that's why I thought it might be possible with the fullsize, guess not though! Thanks for the info

    Sufficient grounds,
    Thanks for your reply, the fairlane is coming along ok. Right now the motor is out and almost put back together. It's the stock 289, bored .030 over, with a mild street cam and hydraulic lifters, and then all the basic rebuild stuff. I'll post some pics of it when I get it all done. Other than that, I've swapped in some bucket seats from an 80's mustang, done up some of the interior (still gotta perfect it), and did a little body work. Here's the latest picture I have of it all together, I don't know if I posted it before or not...


    but, that pic is a little old, I'll go out today and get some more pics of what I've done, and I'll let you know when it's finished.

    Sweet car, but yeah, some whitewalls and knockoffs would set it off right.

    Cheers,

    Hey guys,
    thanks for all the replies, lol mark are you talkin about the bronco or the fairlane with the white walls? The fairlane will get some whitewalls next time I go for tires, I couldn't find them in the size I wanted. If I did end up lowering the bronco (but probably won't cuz I want to keep it 4wd) I'd have to slap on some big wires or somethin, can't keep the rock crusher rims on lol. I got some fresh pics of the fairlane today, I'll post em up in an update thread in the post your rides forum, check it out.
    Thanks again

    Hey bagged conti,
    I thought about throwing on some like 22" wires on it, and i'm still thinkin about it, but I think it'd look even better with 22" wires and lowered . If I do eventually go with big wires, I'll let you know.
