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.

What is the name of the bracket the spring sits in on 1994 f150 4x4 single shock frnt end bolts to the frame


If it's the part on the upper end of the coilspring, and it is a coilover suspension in front (meaning the shock absorber is mounted in the middle of the coilspring) then it is a called the shock top plate, and if it is a model where the shock absorver and coilspring are mounted one beside the other, then the bracket is called simply the spring seat. Although in both cases you can just ask for a spring seat for the front suspension and they will give you the right part and will know what you're talking about. If it is the part on the lower end of the coilspring, then it is called the control arm and is usually a one piece unit consisting of the control arm itself, the ball joints and the mount bushings.
