Re: any body know what this spring perch goes to

NO not that simple the passenger actually has two different size cutouts. one is about 3.25 the other is about 3.375 the sales person at RRO doesnt even know have to wait till tomarow to ask glen if no one here figures it out first I will post the answer when I find out


I work as a machinest fabricator so it wont be a simple answer my first thought is a wrangler prototype sent out by mistake? but it is only 2 inches wide

Re: any body know what this spring perch goes to

when I put them on my rig,,,, the pices that weld to your old spring pads was closer together for the rear...
and further apart for the front perch..

in the picture you posted, it looks like you have a front one and a rear one...

do you have both of your axes off?

One thing I remember is Larry at Izook had them about 1/4 an inch higher than they should be to fit the front axel..
that is why when he was installing them, he has a picture of him grinding them to have a better fit.

Re: any body know what this spring perch goes to

I was told this morning that the perch was infact the right one and that the 1/4 inch gap I had was normal and that it was to clear this .030 thick pice of sheet metal that suzuki put on the drivers side and that their parts are percision lazer cut how dumb I made my own yesterday since I had nothing else to do so I spent 2 weeks waiting for something that I wont even use in this pix I have the end of my finger under the perch

Re: any body know what this spring perch goes to

Oh yes just rub it in there sloan.... everybody loves to be told that.... LOL

precision laser cut..... what.. it seems that yours is more gap than Larry at Izook had and way more gap than I had

mine had maybe an 1/8 of an inch gap there also, but it welded up great.....
if it was a 1/4 or like what you have, I would have been ticked off...
