from everyone that i have talked to, the 9" springs from jeffs bronco graveyard will settle maximum 1-1.5". If the truck is too short after they settle you can move the shock tower lower for more lift.

For the shock question i know what your trying to say ill have to go measure in a little. The coil buckets are a sort of rare item but you can use the stock ones its just that like the 66-77 ones they will give slightly more lift, but will limit you to a stud type shock which is undesirable. i used a f-350 drag-link not track-bar, this is because the 78/79 steering box is outside the frame rails which makes the stock nonadjustable 78/79 drag-link a bad choice since it would have to be shortened. the drag-link for 92,93,94,95 f350 works perfect, is adjustable, and even has a slight bend to help with clearing the diff. hope this helps and ill be sure to post that measurement for you in a little while.

thanks alot buddy. I found a set of coild buckets from a 78 for $50 so im good there. Im gonna be running hi steer arms with hiems since i have all the DOM and hiems from my F150 build and since ill be staying lower it should fit fine. I should actually come out less $$$ because of the parts that I already have.

You have got the best looking Ford 150 truck parts there. I was hoping I could do the same for my pick up. Been looking for videos to where I can find instructions for this. I already got my parts, bought it from a good source. high quality stuff. What;s left is to put all stuffs together
