SPOA perches

Which perches should i get...there vary in price so much!!!
I looked at the RR ones and they seem to be the best...but are they worth the extra cash????


Duck tape is like the force, it has a dark side, a light side and it holds the universe together.
...yeah it's good on gas, kinda hard on oil though!!!

Re: SPOA perches

I got the RRO perches and I wouldn't get anything else.
Well worth the money.

Re: SPOA perches

87 Rustbucket:

I am in the final stages (though some here might think that it will never be completed...[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]) of installing a 4.5" SPOA.

I think that the main advantage of getting a bolt-on SPOA (I think Rocky Road has the market cornered on them) is the fact that you can adjust the third member angle after they are installed. You may -- no make that will -- need to buy new U-bolts but you don't need to grind off the perch welds. So if you screw things up handling-wise (especially in the front), it is an "easy" fix that does not destroy your axle. And THAT is important!

Re: SPOA perches

My personal preference is the Breeze perches from NCO.

Great perch at a great price!

They fit awesome and are 6" long to help control axle wrap.

Re: SPOA perches

ack,,,I doused the ubolts in some ER (energy release) penetrating oil a good day before I tried to take them off.
.. and turned the axel over and took my wire round brush on my drill to the threads to clean them out.
then sprayed the oil on them again and they came right off
that way you don't have to cut the old u-bolts off...

Re: SPOA perches

Have to agree with Jbird. Breeze from NCO!

Don't force it, just get a bigger hammer.

Re: SPOA perches

Most everywhere including RRO sells shims for your leaf springs to correct the caster so even if you mess up a little bit its fixable. And the shims cost less than new ubolts most likely.

Complete front axle for sale, with Breeze cross over

Re: SPOA perches

NCO all the way... Fast, inexpensive and, as far as quality goes, they appear to be the best. Also, Tim at NCO is GREAT to deal with.
