Spring Over

Well, when I do my SFA conversion, I'll be doing a spring over in the rear. Only thing I want to know is if I'm gonna need an extended driveshaft, or will my factory one be long enough and not be at extreme deflection at full droop?

Re: Spring Over

If you run the stock rear springs in a spring over you can probably get away with running the stock shaft, depends on how well the rear flex's, I have my rear spring over, with a AAL, and revolvers, and I only had to extend mine about an inch and 3/4 , the slip yoke on the factory rear d shaft is fairly long, that is why SYE is "virtually" unnessacary on our trucks (that and the drive shaft is long enough that it doesnt bind quick like jeeps do) I can tell you that after you do your rear, it will still drive with the stocker, get it flexed afterwards and see.

Re: Spring Over

SYE? what the hell is that?

I'll be ramping it shortly after the Springover and SFA conversion are done, just to see how much flex I get. I'm a little worried about axle wrap, so I'm fabbing up a set of traction bars for the rear end, with quick releases if i need the extra flex off road.

Re: Spring Over

SYE= slip yoke eliminator, that thingy on the driveshaft that slides in and out of your transfer case, makes funny suction noises if you do it fast enough, pee's tran fluid on your head if you pull it all the way out, SYE gets rid of all that fun stuff

Re: Spring Over

cool beans.

one more thing, I hear everyone talking about revolver shackles, what's so great about 'em? I've yet to actually see one close up, or see how it works.

Re: Spring Over

They are a cheap way to get alot of droop, they are only as effective as the leaf springs you run, your shocks will allow, and all the other things that can hinder droop (brakelines,driveshaft,) I think they got a bad rep from the gate cause people expected them to be bolt on magic, and really they arent. I like em, I havent had a single problem with mine, on or off-road, and my dad after seeing the amount of droop I got outta them, put them on his rig front and rear, so I guess like most mods they are a matter of personal preference, some people suffer axle wrap alot, and other side effects, like I said it plays into your leaf springs alot as to how affective they are, or are not. But yes, I would buy them again for my application and the way my rig is set up, they are kick a$$ !!!!!!!!
