Re: Need info on swapping spring over axles

What did you do for rear springs? Or was both your front & rear springs under your axles. With mine it is just the front that is under the front end.

Re: Need info on swapping spring over axles

As for the rear, I did a shackle inversion and fabbed my own mounts to compensate for the 7" gained up front with the SOA..here are some pics...
This is the front mount of the rear springs... drops front mount 5.25"


This is the rear shackle mount I made...

Re: Need info on swapping spring over axles

XJ89XJ,

I hear that!!! NOONE thought a Waggie could fit 39's without MAJOR trimming! If I didn't have all the brewskies over the 3 years I have invested in this, I may have been able to afford my front shaft!!! LMAO

the problem with the shaft is that the factory CV front shaft is limited to 16-22 max operating angle.... I 'SIT' at 32 degrees!!!! and I droop to 55 degrees!!! That is why I required a high-angle CV shaft to be built from one of 3 companies that can do it or say they can... all want an average of $800 for the shaft.... guess I just have to save the $$$$

Re: Need info on swapping spring over axles

Ken,

No problem.... the three companies I am taking to are in preference order:
1. http://www.gloeco.com AA Arizona Driveline... they make the Bad Boy Junior... look under their custom high angle shaft section

2. http://www.highangledriveline.com His name is Jesse...had the article in the current 4x4 mag on his 80 degree 1 ton shaft...nice guy

3. http://www.4xshaft.com Tom Woods custom shafts

PS---- Mark (Above the Law) has been trying to get in touch with you about the QT parts.... email him at [email protected] ---his email is down, use Drew's account for now and reference Mark in teh subject...

Get to IRC Ken..... haven't seen you there in a while.

Have a good one..

Re: Need info on swapping spring over axles

Is there anyway you can drop your drivetrain a bit? I done it with my 72 GMC for my 6" lift to help with the driveline angles.
