Spring wrap on CJ SOA

Im just finishing up my CJ D44 front axle swap and SOA, and spring wrap combating is next. I was wondering what others have done to combat this problem. MORE has the anti wrap perches that are 7" long. Will these do the trick? If so, thats makeable.

Thanks again guys

The longer perches should help on the Front. Shouldn't have much of a problem with axle wrap on the front axle unless your running gobs of power.

Re: Spring wrap on CJ SOA

Re: Spring wrap on CJ SOA

We used the longer perches on a friends SOA, and it still had axle wrap as bad as any other perches. The only way to eliminate it is with a triangulated traction bar, with a shackle at the front so you don't limit articulation.

Re: Spring wrap on CJ SOA

Alright, I can see what your saying. Is there a company that makes something like this. Maybe I can get an idea of what it needs to look like, brackets and all. Is there anyone out there that already has this on their Jeep that I could get a picture from?

Re: Spring wrap on CJ SOA

Here is Kutty's wrap bar writeup . For more pics check out sam's offroad or the one that M.O.R.E. sells I just finished building one for my CJ and got all the parts from MORE. they will sell you the rear plates they use for their bar if you call them. Easy enough to make also, but time is worth something.

Re: Spring wrap on CJ SOA

Like mentioned, M.O.R.E. sells one, SAM'S Offroad, and a few others. I had the materials and things needed to make my own so I went that route. I used heim joints on all three ends so I could have more adjustment of pinion, t-bar angle etc, but they are not really needed at the axle end. On the front, I use a weld on heim on the crossmember, then a shackle from there to the heim on the t-bar, for the axle end, I used shock mount tabs and heim spacers to fill the width.
They are pretty easy to build, if you search for traction bar, there shouyld be lotsa pic's out there.
Here is a quick shot of mine.
