Any got any tips for me when I swap springs under my bronco? I'm still going to run the 3" wide springs but I'll be swapping to a set of 52s up front and 63s out back(spring lengths).

No clue...what are the stock lengths? Is this a common swap? or are you making something work you had laying around...

well most just swap in a Deaver spring pack in the rear and use coils up front.

I don't have the time or patience to design a 4-link for the front to use coils so I'm going leaf sprung front rear. The 63" swap is the easiest because you use the stock bronco front rear spring mount and then move the rear mount back till you have a good shackle angle.
