spring over on \'77 J20

Anyone ever done a spring over on a FSJ before? Is it as simple as removing the axles and having the spring perches flipped? Could a D60 from a Dodge be used for the back since its already spring over? Would brake lines have to be extented? What about steering? Can a spring over be done on the back only or would this screw up traking and steering geometry? Any disadvantages? Any other way to get clearance under a J20? Thanx

yes
no, u cant flip the perches. once perch is cast into the diff housing.
u have to measure the dodge and compare with the rear unit on the FSJ.
yes
tri county has a spring over steering setup for u.
the rear is already spring over.
bump steer.
buy a store bought lift. make nu springs.

the rear diff on a j20 is a d60 anyway...

Thanks for the info Kenny. That's quite the beast you have there. How about body lifts for J20s are they pretty straight forward?
