Re: CJ7 gets a new suspension SUA front SOA rear ????s
You know you could be onto something. I recently tried to sitdown and design a shackle reversal for my front dana 44, but the problem ended up being I would have to lift it too much to be able to outboard correctly, (all the while still doing SUA in the rear) so my jeep would have ended up sqautting many inches in rear.
If you were to SOA the rear, get 4-5 inches, I would almost bet you would have enough room up front to do a reversal with SUA. THe other problem I ran into was mounting the reversal up front. I don't know waggy widths offhand, but a scout 44, the shackles ended up being right on/in the frame. No go.....
If you can come up with a way to make an outboard reversal not look too goofy I think you have a good idea going.
I gave up on mine because I didn't have enough clearance for comfort. Possibly with offset shackles or something I could have done it.
