No pics, but if you just want to do a coil spring setup, I've seen where a guy took a set of stock radius arms and coil springs from the front of a late 70's F-150 and put them on the rear. It looked pretty decent and flexed really well on the trails. Had no axle wrap either. If class rules would have allowed it for me, I would have done the same thing on my ranger.

Or you can use the same setup from an early Bronco. 66-77yr
Also check with either James Duff or Wild Horses 4x4, one of them makes a 4 link for the big bronco.

I have a 4 link rear in my bronco. I used jeffs bronco graveyard superflex front springs in the rear. 2 inch dom ballistic fab joints ect. It works way better than leafs for off road. No wheel hop and lots of flex. Let me now if you have any questions. I could probably email pics of it.

I have a down-and-back modified truck that has a 78 bronco frame. I have a little info for some great resources for some fabrication parts. I have Giant Motorsports 4-link mounts, QA1 1 1/4 heim joints, 2" .250 wall DOM tubing, and I personally have King coilovers and bypasses, but go to Ballistic Fabrication for some many great mounts for springs and all kind of fab items that would take hours to make for cheap! hope this might help! Just make sure to make it with alot of adjustability, for alignment, because with my frame, as I put more cage on the truck, A guy would be surprised how much the frame moves!

This is on a little larger scale but here is my mud truck and my monstertruck is set up the same way. But if you notice how the cradle is built it's setup for maximun length on the bars it's also on a straight frame too but the same setup can be used.

here's the monstertruck it starts as the teardown of big brown but turns into the build of the monster truck.

Garage
Using the set up for an EB isn't a bad idea. I've read about some 78-79 Bronco guys using the EB coil springs up front because of the progressive rate with no problems. I would be interested to know what you end up doing.
