generally you loose weight.. but depends on what you are removing.. a wishbone type IFS is really heavy, i'm not sure on the TTB stuff, but i would imagine that its heavier as well since there are more brackets

you have new coil buckets do you not? bolt them to the stock location see how it sits might sit perfect might sit a little higher or lower if its not right then move your buckets figure out how much lower or higher they need to sit drill new holes and bolt them im,personal iv never done the swap just go by trial and error it should sit pretty damn close sorry if this makes no scence.


ps i dont think your stock coil buckets will not work with your new springs you might need the buckets from the 78 79 f150 bronco

I used the stock buckets on my '85

I don't remember having to use any adaptors of any kind

I've never done coils, but I know that the 78-78 and 80-96 coils are different at the bottom, and everybody that has done it has had to buy or make and adapter. Maybe it is such a minor difference that you can make it work? http://www3.telus.net/cbradley/Smileys/shrug.gif

Now I remember

I had 4" ttb lift coils when I did my ttb lift but put in 6" coils for a '79 axle when I did the SAS...... that's why I don't remember adaptors :D


they did fit in the stock coil buckets just fine though


I already had a shackle reversal installed in the back but added a custom 2" block to adjust the ride height to the front axle

so........ haveing said that I think you should retain the same ride height with the swap

IIRC, the 78-79 coils won't go into the 80-96 buckets, so you can mount your 78-79 bucket wherever you like.

The answer to your question is there. You just need to read a bit more. This has been covered over and over and over there.

I used '79 6" lift coils and did not have to change the coil bucket

they fit fine

I added 10" BDS coils. Gain. I also added supports under the coil buckes as the dam truck kept leaving the ground.:D

the weight of the differential has NO bearing on ride Height[16]

Brandon you can adjust your ride height very easily as said just by the mounting of the buckets to the frame in a appropriate manner

drop the brackets = higher
raise the brackets = lower[cheers]
