    My girlfriend's bronco broke down again! This time it's that stupid ignition control box, they suck, two in 1 year. Looks pretty small next to the blazer though /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif She has a 4 inch lift and 33 inch bfg tires that I bought used for her for last years christmas. We also need to replace the ball joints...jumped it a few times a while back and she nailed the brakes right before she launched so she did a horific nose-dive /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Any ideas on what to do to it ...burn it ect.

    Funny part is my truck is a frame off project and hers has been parked almost just as much hahaha /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Sad part is I just detailed it and used it to turn my blazer around so the front is facing the street /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    And I almost decided just to push the thing in the drive way so I wouldn't have to drive the ford....... /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    They make different quality spark boxes. Don't get the $19.99 AutoZone box. Spend the extra $$$ and get the good one. It'll last longer. The Bronc has a D44 front so ball joints should be the same as a 10 bolt.

    I've converted all sorts of stuff to Dura-Spark II (Inter-trash-inal's, Magnetti Marelli's, even put one in a Buick points dizzy & another in a Chev points dizzy cause an HEI wouldn't fit either car) and I've never had a problem with junkyard sourced OE boxes.
