Re: spring hangers just about done

Those hangers are gay and will never work.
Why are you spending so much time on those crappy weak axles?

Re: spring hangers just about done

Aaron,
May I suggest a more constructive response...like "are you sure that it will support the axle?"

If I look at the pictures, CJ5 with wide track axles, then I can see the need for the new hangers. That is a lot easier than cutting down the AMC20.

I personally disagree with calling the AMC20 a "crappy weak axle". This subject has been discussed for quite a long time. The only real weakness is the flanged axle shaft which is easily corrected with solid shafts. If my stock AMC 20 can handle the Dusy, then I would say it's a good axle....for sure, it's a lot better than the D35.

I seem to remember anothe Aaron (TR) who was not very polite with his comments....

Re: spring hangers just about done

wide track has the same mounting perch as a narrow track, no need to move the hangers.

Then why does everyone with a nt CJ-5 or nt CJ-7 or a Commando that wants to run a waggy (wide track) D44 have to outboard their springs???

Thanks, I haven't lost it completely yet.

Edit: OK, I'm only thinking CJs. Good point Greg.

Re: spring hangers just about done

wide track = the wider axles under the late model CJ7s

waggy axles are also wider but springs are in dif places...
