I am soon going to sas my explorer but i had some questions. im going to be running full width so, do i need to move the coil buckets on the frame outward so that my coils are straight or do i move the bottom bucket that mounts on the radius arms inward? or do i even have to do anything to them?

Depends on the axle you're using. Some axles you can move the radius arm wedges on, others are on a cast assembly that cannot be moved at all.
You could redrill the lower spring plate atop the radius arm and move it over a bit that way though (I've seen where both the upper and lower mounts were moved (splitting the difference between them) so there isn't as much leverage put on the frame from spacing the upper buckets out the full distance).

i have a hp d44 from a 79 f150 so i cant cut off the wedges. Do most people space out the coil buckets from the frame? if i move the lower spring plate in would that be enough?
