    rear 4" lift springs

    The springs on my 2000 ex looked like the springs in the picture above. I replaced them with springs off an 84 Suburban, keeping the axle over spring setup that was stock. The springs are 5 leaf plus the overload spring. I have about 3 inches lift, could gain almost another inch if I remove...

    Howdy from Texas!

    I've been visiting here so often I figure I might as well sign up! I bought a 2000 xls cheap, mainly as a motor donor for my Bronco II, but I have had so much fun driving it, I am planning on driving it for a while. Looking forward to sharing my experiences with you all.
