MORE srs and buggy springs-feedback?

This is a mod I'll be doing this week and testing out on arun to Deckers Januarly 6. I'm wondering what other quetions will come up with it. Like will there be any impact on steering. Currently have 4" SUA and dropped pitman. MORE says I may have to go back to stock pitman? What about driveshaft length? Front shaft is stock and is already pulled out a little from the lift, didn't have a problem with it all summer though. SRS relocates axle forward though, right?

Re: MORE srs and buggy springs-feedback?

Watch out for caster problems!! After I installed my SRS kit, the front end liked to shake uncontrollably. I bolted the springs through the center hole of the shackles (just for right now..... I hope). I'm intending on re-working the front end, caster and pinion angle. But for now it was a fix.

I don't think those kits are made to be used with lift springs.

I have the 4" springs and dropped pitman as well.

Re: MORE srs and buggy springs-feedback?

If you are already pulled a small amount with the 4" SUA then you better get ready for a new front(possibly long travel) driveshaft. The MORE SRS locates the front diff 1" forward, so that makes 1" less of driveshaft from the start. The SRS naturally travels away from the x-fer during extension, so you will have alot more pronounced extension of the front driveshaft. This coulpled with the extreme amount of more droop that the buggy spring will give you will amount to new driveshaft in the front.

Look into a lock down mechanism for the buggy spring as well, if this rig sees any time on the street. Plates welded to the frame that extend below the buggy spring with holes drilled just below the buggy spring to allow insertion of a bolt to hold the spring down during driving comes to mind. It will also act like a guide when the bolt is taken out and extension occurs.

I have also heard that the rubber pad that MORE sends with their kit is a bad idea with a road driven vehicle. If you clamp down the spring then there is no need for a pad to dampen the noise. This pad has been rumored to cause lots of swaying of the spring, b/c this is where the twisting forces are transferred.

Re: MORE srs and buggy springs-feedback?

I have the same set-up. 4" Skyjacker lift with a stock pitman arm and a M.O.R.E. SRS kit. Before I had the M.O.R.E. SRS kit the Jeep would wander all over the road. With the SRS kit it travels straight down the road minimal correcting. But, yes I did have to have my front drive shaft lengthened, which is a good time to upgrade to the heavy duty tube .188 wall thickness.
