There's a very good possibility that I just need to get used to the feel of it butt I've had a lot of different rigs in the past and I have never felt as unstable as I do in this one

Keep an eye out on classifieds. I've seen some people switch to air shocks or coilovers sell some used bilsteins cheap

what about junkyarding some smaller sway bars? :mrgreen: or you could get some custom shocks done like we did for my sami and Joshes tracker, from doestch tech. fully rebuildable and only around 60$ per shock I had em valve em super soft for the sami, they ride 100% better than the autozone crown vic shocks i was running. actually I have two i havent installed yet, you could see if they will fit on front of your bronco and try em out. but Im gonna need them back lol

I don't have any issues spending that much on shocks if it's going to make a big difference.

I definitely will put a limit strap on it, no matter what I do with shock and coils it needs one. I think the weight distribution on these things is just bad because even a stock one unload the suspension easily on Hills, then adding a crap ton of gear like I had down in Kentucky only throws that weight balance off even worse.

You do live with 3 females now so maybe it's rubbing off, I'd bet lowering it and a limit strap and u will be fine, I seriously doubt u keep it long enough to find out

It will definitely help. But I still need to figure out coil spring rating and the correct shocks valving to make it perform how I want.

I plan on taking the Broncos to the next ride bill has that will test the stability of it for sure.

If I can make bills entrance then maybe I don't need to do anything to it!
