    A buddy of mine is offering to sell me some 5 1/2 inch lift springs he took off the front of his 94 Cherokee. Will they fit in a first gen explorer?

    Not without a few mods...

    What exactly are you looking to get out of them? Just lift? (and if so, how much?) Or something more?

    Yeah they might not be enough lift for the pumpkin on that to clear your frame crossmember (you need about 6" minimum lift, those coils are more likely to come out around 4-5").

    Also, be aware, an early Bronco D44 is somewhat of a downgrade from your stock axle unless you put better shafts in it that have the same u-joints you have now in your D35. Those coils alone (well, maybe a steering swap also) are really all you need assuming better flex is what you're after.
