New SOA Kit

I just opened up my new issue of 4Wheel Drive and saw a Full Traction Suspension ad for their new SOA kit. It looks like a pretty good setup for those that don't have a welder or may want to return their jeep to stock again. Anyway check it out.

Re: New SOA Kit

It's not new. That thing's been out a while.

Re: New SOA Kit

It has been around for a while. I would like to know if anyone is using it and what they think of it.

I am getting ready to do a SOA and will have to hire someone to weld the stuff on, so the $489.95 price tag is very appealing.

Re: New SOA Kit

It's been covered a few times on here before. From what I remeber of it, it doesn't fix steering issues, drivelines and braking.

Re: New SOA Kit

I wouldn't use that kit. I just don't like my spring perches and stuff like that BOLTED on. What if they loose and the perches can spin around freely? Hire a welder and have it done right.

Re: New SOA Kit

Every spring over that I have done or helped with was done for under $250 including new shocks.
If you set everything up and take it to someone to have it welded, it shouldn't run more than $50 to have them zap the perches and shock mounts on. If you can do the measurements and take over when they are done, it is easy. There is a ton of info on the web. I researched mine and did it with minimal fab skills (at the time, I'm an expert now of course! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img])
