What\'s the spring under axle kit ?

I know soa conversions are all the rage , but I'm looking to do a spring under axle lift. Has anyone had good lucky with the Rubicon Express Extreem Duty kit. I'm looking to run 33" tires , and want something with a good ride and some nice flex.

Re: What\'s the spring under axle kit ?

Well from your profile I can honestly say that I know nothing about the RE lift for Yota's. I've heard a little about their stuff on jeeps. About four inches of lift will fit 33's under a CJ. A vague question and profile usually gets you a vague answer.

RE only makes stuff for Jeeps. 4.5 inch RE Extreme Duty fo YJs will allow room for 33s.
For Toyotas you need at least 3 inch lift to clear 33s.

What vehicle are you looking for a lift for?

SUA on a TOY? This would put the spring pack lower than the diff.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]
Why would you try and experiment with this? Surely this is a mis-understanding?
More info. please.

Re: What\'s the spring under axle kit ?

Sorry guy's the double of NyQuil and the 101 fever got the best of me. Heck I didn't even pose the right question ( What is the BEST spring under axle kit?) Your right the Yota is long gone. I also updated my profile so as to detour any further confusion. Now on to the good stuff. I'm doing a frame up restore on a 85' cj-7. The rig is for mild trails and sight seeing trips. I am going to shoehorn a 350 with an auto trans into the jeep, but was thinking a sua would be a better choice for a mild trail runner. I've read alot about the soa but think I'm going to stick with the sua. What I'm looking for is a nice ride with good flex. 33" tires will be the max. tire used. Once again sorry for the mix up.

3 inch lift will clear 33 on CJs. Go with 4 inch, you'll have plenty of room for mild off-roading.

Re: What\'s the spring under axle kit ?

i like the skyjacker softride kit.. it gives about the best flex for the $$$, but the springs will sag after a couple years of abuse. when you are shop[ping for a kit, make sure you know what is included in each, and compare prices from there..i would avoid pro comp.. they are pretty stiff

old man emu. is good but only gives about 2.5 inches. if you went with a body lift too. you could make lots of room
