    05 front suspension on 97......

    just thinkin out loud ive been planning on doing something with the suspension on my truck. im gonna 4 link and air ride the back. and in the front i was thinkin of keeping leaf springs and doing a reverse shackle. was thinkin of 4 linking front also. but kinda put it to the back cause the as i started to look it was gonna be a ton of money. i wonder how the radius arms, and coils would work off an 05???? then i would just need to make a custom track bar and the towers for the top of the coils.......or use a airbag in place of the coil....i wonder if the frame width is the same from the 97 to the 05?....hmmmmm

    In case we find ourselves starting to believe all the anti-American sentiment and negativity, we should remember England 's Prime Minister Tony Blair's words during a recent interview. When asked by one of his Parliament members why he believes so much in America , he said:
    "A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want in... And how many want out." Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
    1. Jesus Christ
    2. The American G. I.
    One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

    I'll be waiting for pics. the superduty d60 is probably easier to get than the old style d60 at this point.

    I always thought a med travel ttb with coilovers would be a pretty trick set up too.

    yeah like the older broncs had with the ttb and coils???

    yeah i had thought of swapping both front and rear axles out when i did my d60 swap to get the discs in the back but that was like $2500 for both axles then i needed a bunch of brake parts to make the rear discs work correctly. im gonna start on it in about 6 weeks i think....we will see i might get to it sooner.
