SOURCE: 1995 e150 ford van,, 4.9 6cyl i need to replace

Hi Darrell,
No the springs will remain in place,You will need new bolts and nuts before you start the job,they are 1/2 x one inch.you'll need five of them.unfortunately there are three large rivets you will need to torch off besides the other three bolts and nuts. Remove the radius arm nut and outer bushing before you loosen the arm.
good luck

My 2003 f150 pulls to left when i initially apply brakes,then straightens out.I replaced both calipers,rotors and pads.bled air out of lines and problem still exist's.


Check the rubber bushings on the front suspension arms, especially the lower radius leading arms. When you brake the inertia of the car is thrown forward and the lower arms come under enormous strain. If the radius arm to body frame bushing has gone then the leading arm moves rearwards slightly and causes toe out on the front wheel. If one side is weaker than the other then the car steers/pulls in the direction of toe out. If these check out then look at the ball joints on the steering arms and the steering links. Use a pry bar and be quite forceful, its a big truck and there should be no movement.

Hi, i have a 1981 ford bronco ranger xlt.I hit a mail box with a concrete base and now my right front tire is angled out -in on the bottom and out on the top-any hints of how to correct the problem??


First off, if this is the case, you have a bent part some where and it should be straightened or replaced.

You need to adjust the camber to straighten the tire. Some vehicles have a adjustments but MOST use shims to correct for minor assembly tolerances.

I'm looking for a front suspension diagram for a 1997 Ford Ranger 4wd. Can you point me in the right direction?


Suspension The independent front suspension (IFS) system is composed of a two-piece front driving axle, two front coil springs (5310) and two radius arms. The front driving axle consists of two independent axle arms. One end of each axle arm is anchored to the frame (5005). The other end of each axle arm is supported by the front coil springs and radius arm.

How do I replace left Radius Arm insolator on 1996 F-150 2x4


Pretty easy for the regular backyard mechanic to do. First drive up to a pretty good sized tree so you are almost directly in front of it head on. loosen the nut on the back. Using a come along pul the front left side to pull your radius arm from the hanger. change out the front bushing and loosen the come along slowly so you can line the radius arm back into the hanger....a jack may be needed even though I have never had to use one. once the radius arm is back in place replace the rear bushings and torque to 200 ft lbs. i think its 200 ft lbs but check with a repair manual or ask a mechanic to make sure.

Hope this helps yah cause I have done it this way on alot of vehicles I have owned and it doesnt cost nearly what it does to take it in and have it professionaly done. And it only takes about 45 minutes to do a side. But do both if replacing the bushings on one side, always do the other also.
