    lowering kit help... 88 bronco 2

    I didnt know there as lowering kits available for the b2. Who sells it? Ranger parts will not bolt on, bronco 2s have their own ibeams for 2wd because they ALL have 4x4 engine crossmembers, along with dummy transfer cases on the back of the transmission, so converting them to 4x4 is extremely easy.

    lowering kit help... 88 bronco 2

    They are riveted. And you will need more than the pivot brackets, you will need the whole engine crossmember from a 2wd ranger, which is welded andriveted, and you will have to take your engine out. If you're serious about lowering your bronco 2 you are best off getting an 89+ 2wd ranger parts...

    My Bronco 2

    Every single ranger, including 2wds, got twin pistons up front in those years. And ya, you'll need the whole knuckle to upgrade brakes.

    lowering a bronco2

    I've lowered a Ranger 5'' without the tierods hitting the frame. You don't really have to worry about that untill you starting airbagging things.

    Leaky 1985 Bronco II

    Your pitman seal could be going bad on the steering box. It has to be pulled and disassembled to replace the seal.

    Stumpy 2 (Build-up)

    you can find that in the wiring diagrams in a Haynes manual, I believe its the purple wires, but that was over a year and a half ago that I did a 5-spd swap on my old longbed.

    Stumpy 2 (Build-up)

    correct. And for it to start, you'll either need to jump the neutral safety switch wires which are in that big one, OR (the cleaner way) is to swap the harness that goes to the transmission, that way you'll have reverse lights too. Did you plug in the clutch safety switch located on the clutch...

    Resurrection of a Bronco II

    You have to be sure that doesn't have any leaks...M5ODs will toast the bearings if you let the fluid leak out of them.
