Who makes bolt on spring perches?

I saw a post of someone doing an axle swap. They had to remove their old spring perches and install new ones. They got some that bolted on. That way they could adjust the rear pinion angle exactly as they wanted it before welding the perches. Who makes these perches? Or where can I get them?

Re: Who makes bolt on spring perches?

you can do that with any perches. Just don't tighten the u bolts all the way and use a botte jack under the yoke to adjust it when it is sitting on the ground. The bolt on's are not meant to be welded but i think you'd have to be an idiot not to weld them. They are not a good idea and are more expensive than a good set of weld ons.

if you must get bolt-on, circle track racer parts stores and catalogs sell them. i also used regular pearches and rotated them to where i wanted before welding, it worked fine, (just don't jump on the gas or brake)

Look in Curries latest catalog. They have about the slickest bolt on setup I've ever seen.

Re: spring perches. Here it is!

I just installed them on my rear 44 a couple of weeks ago. I really like them though they do present one
problem. The diameter is 3" so for my scout rear there was 1/4" to make up because the tube diameter
is 2.75". Keep that in mind if you use these. I had to create some shims out of 3" conduit pipe to
compensate for the gap. I cut 2 half circles and drilled holes for the center bolt and 1 half cirle shim
at the bottom (SUA). Other than that I'm pleased with them. You sould tac weld the sides once you have
your angle set to reenforce it. Also if I ever get around to doing a SOA, I simply turn them around to
the top of the axle. $50 well spent (c:
