What to do w/ my M-416

I was going to do a spring over w/ 33's but now that I have the 33's on I think a spring over will be too much. Yet I don't have the clearence to just run the 33's.

How about a little shackle lift? You don't need that much and it's not like it's gonna mess up the steering. [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
I think SOA will be too much.

Capital idea dave!

What are the spring dimensions? Any chance of swapping in a set of YJ leafs (happen to have a few sets) or some other easy to find model that'll give you some lift?

Where did you score that one? I did a spring over on the one that I used to have. If you go spring over, the shocks won't reach(no biggie) and the brake cable will be real tight.

Re: What to do w/ my M-416

Dave's onto something here...Thats a mighty big spring pack...How wide? How long? I've got a set of YJ rear 2 in lift springs in the garage...

Now you are gonna look like a train pulling into Arrow Head. Ford>Jeep>M-416. :-)

Re: What to do w/ my M-416

You could always just have the springs rearched for a couple of extra inches. It's not real expensive.

Thanks for the pics of your trailer with 33s. I've managed to accuire a M-100 with good running gear and a rusted out body. I'm trying to figure out what to do myself. Those pics give me some ideas.

Hey Rich, that is the trailer that you got for Pat.
I bought it from him when he moved in w/ Niki.

Re: What to do w/ my M-416

Did you pay him in full yet??? The bastard still owes me $100 for it. He gave me $200 and was gonna give me a Dana 300, but I decided not to go with the flip kit, so now, he's in debt to me for $100,....bastard [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
