Re: 3/4 ele F/R on a yj
When I swapped to SOA I did a shackle reversal system, and thought for the extra bucks I would try the front buggy kit(3/4 elliptical) from MORE.
The only time I got the front springs to pull 'pull away' was when I made them. On any trail, or rocks I was on, they didn't pull away. I was running 9012 in the front and fully extended the springs were only open a little. I know I could have obtained full extension with a different shackle angle. I was running a Arizona driveline 13" slipshaft to eliminate the possibility of separation. Now that I am needing to rebuild my Jeep, I probably won't do the buggy kit again. It just wasn't that effective.
For the rear I can use all of a 9012's length (actualy more if disconnected)w/o 3/4 elliptical, so don't think I need it. If you do decide it is for you, either clamp them down with square u-bolts, or a bolt thru the spring when you are driving normally to reduce the opening when not wanted to.
