Re: Springover on YJ?

A SOA is NOT an easy conversion.

Lots of planning, thought, and expertise goes into making one work right.

That said Rubicon Express makes a pretty complete kit.
The only thing that they leave out is a short shaft kit for the transfer case.
And u-bolts.

My experiance is that you will also need some sort of anti-wrap device, and an extra set of leaf's fro the springs.

Welding is involved, so be sure that is taken into consideration.

If done PROPERLY a SOA jeep will ride good, and flex great, all while being safe.

Good luck

I've got access to a small shop and welder so that's not a problem

Re: Springover on YJ?

I've haeard that the rubicon express kit is good. Pattersons did a comparison a couple month ago on wich one is better on a CJ. The spring over is not easy to do and usually takes lots of up keep. Also MORE Mountain off Road Enterprises www.mountainoffroad.com/ carries a steering correction kit that is suposed the make steering noramal again.
that's what I've herd,
Andy
