Finished up the rear end swap this weekend.
Made spring plates out of 6 inch box tubing and grafted the stock shock tabs. Axle is set back and inch on the springs.

Narrowed/Rebuilt Explorer axle. All new brake hardware. New spring bushings.
New tires on Ranger/Explorer rims (not my first choice but wheels are a low priority right now. 205/60 rear 195/60 front.

Drivers side rear sitting about 1.5 inches higher than the Passenger side still. not sure if it's a problem with the springs or the car. It has sat low since I bought it.

Chris... if you read this and have insight into why the drivers rear sits high I'd love to hear about it so I can fix it now. Would rather straighten the car if it needs it.
May order springs for it if you don't know why it sits that way.

Going to start building all new brake lines for it this week.
