when doin a solid axle converstion on my 89 bronc can i reuse the dual shock and coil bucket?

To reuse the coils, you have to make a coil spring adapter for it to attach to your axle. I'm not sure about if the shocks will be able to be attached to the radius arms without modification.

get a parts 78/79 bronco or f150 and use everting from the front, then you also put a 9'' in the rear and all the other goodies in

Used my original coil buckets in my old 96, no adapter thingy. Mine had quad shocks.
don't waist your time with small axles if your going to run bigger than 35-38's go with D60, you'll be thankfull you did it the first time. Speaking from lots of experience.

what is this adapter thingy everyone is talking about??? never seen or heard of one

some guys from fullsizebronco run them not to popular, If you can afford a 60 do it as rod said if not a 44 will do just fine.

you can buy C purches for welding to the tubes if you want to stay coil for the D60. That what I would have done.
