92 Explorer on 1976 F150

OK, here goes...my 92 Explorer just about to go to a 1976 F150 HP Dana 44 and Ford 9 inch with 4.56 gears.

A few thing need to be addressed with my purchase;
  1. it has drum brakes up front, so I want to swap to discs
  2. one side of the Dana 44 has a broken inner and outer shaft due to a blown ujoint
  3. it needs radius arm pivot and C bushings
  4. the coil buckets have seen better days
I have previously SAS'd a 2002 Nissan Xterra with a 1979 Bronco setup, so I already have some lessons learned.
This time I'll make sure the coils are completely vertical, and I'll buy a Superlift adjustable track-bar instead of cutting and sleeving it to fit. Superlift Track Bar

It should be a relatively simple swap since there's no IFS hardware to remove from the frame.

Goal is to replace anything worn or broken, and try and keep the width as narrow as possible.
