From Stock Springs to 2.5in on SOA questions?

Just wondering about what steering and angle problems I might run into when changing to 2.5in springs from stock springs on a spring over axle. [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Not sure if your driveline will like that or not. But only one way to find out [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] What do you have for steering right now? Do you have a drop pitman or any type of hi-steer setup? You draglink angle might not be the greatest. Of course, it might not be the greatest right now. [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

I've got a dropped pitman right now... I think haha... just wondering if there were any other issues besides the normal steering geometry getting completely out of whack. [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

If you are going to be running stock springs with a SOA in the rear you will need a bar. Becaue you will probably get a lot of wheel hop. The stock springs will flex like crazy, because they are nice and flat, and soft. You may think about using some 1.5 in lift springs, they will be a little bit stiffer, but still flex very well.
