i looking at installing a steering stabilizer on the bronco.

i'm going for a monroe kit that is on the justsuspensions website.

they show two options. one being for an open channel frame, the other for a boxed frame.

underneath it LOOKS like it would be an open channel frame, but how can i be sure?

why did ford go with two different types of frames any way - 4x4 vs. 4x2 maybe?

thanks.

BTW: they have great prices, just sayin'...

Ford went to a boxed front Frame Rail in 92-96; "convluted section for safety restraint sys (SRS) that crushes on heavy impact; includes air bags in 9406

Monroe kit is similar to the Rancho kit

Some info for you

Heres a Monroe installed on my 93 Bronco XLT that had the factory mounts on it (see frame mount hanging down on the left).. took very little time to do.. and seemed to help..



The old one was VERY shot looking..

I went with pro comp dual stabilizer side by side. Had to drill a hole on wheel bracket but it worked. I'll probably install a skid plate to cover the center brackets, don't like how it looks but works great.
