Would an f-150 lift kit be the same as a bronco one? I'm not tooo sure and it'd be good to know before I order one :P. I'm lookin at a 4" suspension lift.

gut instinct tells me yes. IIRC, the are pretty much the same chassis provided they are for the same year models. Try fullsizebronco.com for more info.

if you are ordering one, can't you order one for a bronco and be sure it is right? [f]

yup, they're the same, only difference between the trucks is the length of the frame.

where ever your ordering from should know the info....like if it would fit...if they DONT know that...dont bother ordering it from them....

When I lifted my b2 I bought a ranger lift kit......they are the same.....


I do believe the f150 and Bronco would be the same though...

Actually NO they are not the same.
I just bought a 4" lift for my '93 Bronco.
The lift was out of a '95 P/U.
The one difference is the amount of lift in the rear.
My kit had a single add -a -leaf.
The truck had a 2" block & 3 leafs w/1 overload.
My Bronco has a 1" tappered block (for pinion angle) & 5 leafs w/no overload
Because of the extra leafs in the bronco (smaller ones at the bottom) the add-a-leaf wouldn't fit.
I had to use the leaf pack & 2" block out of the P/U along with my tappered block from the Bronco.
Now my rear is 1" higher than the front. (measured from the grnd to the body line.
I may leave it or find a 1" block.

I saw the truck it came out of, '95 F150.
I can see why, you don't need a big heavey overload spring on a bronco, so they put in 2 (softer?) leaves instead, 5 in the Bronco, 3 + overload in the P/U.
Also with the shorter bronco wheel base they put in a 1" (at back) tappered block for pinion angle.
The F150 has a straight 2" block with bump stop extrusion.
Also in the parts list of some of the manufactures, they list a different kit for Super Cabs than the reg cab F150's?

This is what I have found when lifting the '90's trucks/Broncos, they will interchange, but you will have to play around with the rear leaves.

K thanks for the help. I definitely was not going to order it without knowing for sure, just asking if anyone knew. Some I've looked at say something like F150/Bronco lift, and then again others have seperate ones for the different trucks.

Yes....the front end lift is the same for all of the ttb broncos and f150s.

There are many different lifts for the rear.
Some use blocks only, some use block and add a leaf and some replace the leafs completely.

or

you can do a shackle reversal
