Are you sure this is from a 71 Bronco axle? I thought a 71 EB is low pinion and has 260 u-joints. While the low pinion isn't a huge deal, the small 260 u-joints are IMO.
I also thought that EB axles were narrower than stock (59" IIRC) while JK axles are wider than stock (65" IIRC)
Yeah, if I go high steer I'm ready to make a custom track bar mount and I know the sway bar tabs will have to be custom. That's why I decided to make them myself with the plasma cutter and some 1/4" steel.
I don't think I'm going high steer as it add significant cost if my knuckles Aren't flat top (which I'm doubting) and I don't see the benefit being higher than the cost, with the way we wheel out here.
I'm not sure on the year of the axle, I know it has the tabs welded on, and drum brakes, but it is def high pinion. I hope it has the larger u joints. I'd have to check those out. I think it might have come out of an f100, I'm not sure. Ill measure the wms but it looks a lot wider than stock.
Edit: Based on this page, I think I'm fine. http://www.fourwheeler.com/techartic...s/viewall.html
