I will outsource.
It's not as hard as it seems. Besides if you intend to wheel your truck, you should be prepared make some trail repairs, especially changing an axle ;) YMMV

That's a whole lot of work for a 1" spacer.

I prefer the factory rake...
I'd level it if it had squat... But this just isn't anything I'd even consider. 🤷
Factory rake on a vehicle with a soft suspension (like on the Bronco) is designed to allow for payload in the cargo bay, which will lower the rear end when loaded.

It also helps give it safer, understeering handling characteristics.

That’s 100% right.
Having the confidence to try is 50% of the job, the right tools is 25%. You can bumble through the rest.
You can watch all the YouTube videos you want but the only way to learn is to get your hands dirty.

Edit: With the exception of an automatic transmissions. That shit is black magic! :LOL:
Ugh I got a jeep AW4 sitting on my bench with a rebuild kit next to it. The one in my comanche usually has reverse but not uphills really. When then reverse is all but gone. I will have to invoke some kind of spell to rebuild that thing.

Now we need someone to make a video on just flipping the studs or replacing them with bolts with out the lift.

And if possible, doing it rolling around on their back in a driveway with minimal hand tools and a torque wrench. Because.... that's how I'll be doing it ;-)

You’re a brave man. ATs are the one thing I won’t touch, other than replacing filters and solenoids. Good luck!

To get rid of the raked font end & level the stance of the truck.
And make it drive sub-optimally on the highway by subverting the design established by Ford engineers.

And getting up a hundred times to get a different socket, etc. At least that’s how I do it!
