Has anyone tried adding lift to the front of ford 1/2tby lowering the
spring buckets farther down on the frame? if so what kind of problems did you have if any?

what year? if it's ttb it may be a lil difficult (due to the weird shape of the frame on the driv. side

it's light it's fast it's powerful

everything a chevy isn't

those look like rancho springs to me have you had any problems with
the coil bucket moving. it dosn't look like you have any thing on the bottom side of the frame. or any cross bar over top.

No movement from them.I didn't brace the top or bottom yet ,I will some day but no problems so far ,and I have got air time with it.no they only look like ranchos cause I painted them red ,they were black.
