I think he means from the 2 wheel drive they are real long and real stiff whats the point ,I guess $$$ .so if you decide to do it then stick them in then measure . you will need a longer front shaft your caster will be whacked and you won't want to block the rear that high.

BOGGERS RULE!!!!:

I got the springs out of a 3/4ton ford van,I'm sure it will only give me about 2-1/2 too 3" of lift in the front but not sure so thats why I wanted to no what size of block I would put under the springs in the back, I've seen plent of chev guys put 3" blocks in the front and back and never have to change the drive shaft, even if you put a 4" lift in you don't have to change the shaft,and yes it's about the money a lift for a 81 bronco is about $2000 and this make shift lift costs about $60 bucks but maybe I will long in to it a bit further but any more tips will help.

Blocks in front = bad idea, they work loose and fall out. Besides its a good way to get a VI.

All right stop, collaborate and listen.
