Re: YJ Springs and RRO spring perches-will they work?
I have not done the YJ conversion, so forgive me if I sound dumb but this is my line of thought. SPOA+YJ springs=mega amounts of travel. So far so good right? The fact that the springs are longer is what gives them there travel? Right? Longer springs lengthen your wheelbase? Right? So if you just have the basic RRO pads you will have to drill new locater holes, which from what I understand an 1" or so is ok, but after that it produces problems i.e. your weight not being distributed right on the axle. I'm not sure how far forward it will move each axle, but I know after 2" or so your front steering linkage will bind, unless you have a cross over steering system. In addition to having a awesome articulating suspension, your drivelines will now be stretched out because you lengthened your wheelbase. So something tells me you will need alot of drive line work. But maybe someone with experience with this lift could tell you more I am just going by what I've read.
