Bronco suspension:

3 different types-

11 different spring part numbers, same 11 for all three types. (only 5 are active in the parts system, prices range from about $88.00-$120.00 each)

Standard has 3 shock choices: Big Bend, Outer Banks, Base #6, WildTrak #7

Special has 2 shock choices: 2 door

High Ride has 2 shock choices: 2 door

3 different types-Standard, Special and High Ride

6 different spring part numbers, same 6 for all three types. (all 6 are active in the parts system, prices range from about $147.00-$165.00 each)

Standard has 3 shock choices: 2 door WildTrak #7, Base #6, Big Bend, Outer Banks

Special has 2 shock choices: 2 door

High Ride has 1 shock choice: 4 door Big Bend, Black Diamond, WildTrak #7, Outer Banks, Base #6, Preferred Series, Badlands

This was taken from the MicroCat, on-line parts catalogue. The part descriptions are accurate with the exception Ford calls the two door a 3 door and a four door a 5 door. I changed those to not add additional confusion. Shocks are technically “struts” but Ford calls them a, “Shock Absorber Assembly” so I’m going to use the term shock which is universally known as a suspension dampening device. If a specific VIN was used to look up these parts, it would (should) know the correct part for that application since it uses a version of historical vehicle bill of materials provided by Ford.

Spring descriptions appear to use the engineering number which would most likely be a tag attached to the spring itself. If using a VIN, the system should be able to pick the correct one or at least narrow it down to a couple of choices. No other specifications (coil heights, number of coils or coil diameters) are in the catalogue descriptions.

I'm not going to speculate on what "Preferred Series" means.
