RUF & SR?

Anyone done a rears up front and a shakle reverse too?
Hows the install and quality of the warrior weld on SR kit?
How is thw warrior kit indexed? Can it be moved a bit foreward for a little bit of a longer wheelbase?
How about SR+CJ fronts in front?
How much longer are the CJ fronts than the Sammy rears?

I know...I know...just go YJs.
Just thinking of options and cost.

Re: RUF & SR?

I can answer a couple of your questions as I have the Calmini S/R with rears up front. I think the Warrior kit might allow repositioning of the front axle, but the Calmini kit doesn't. I had to drill the spring packs to move the axle forward.
In either case, it might be a good idea to use the 2 small leafs from the front springs in the rear up front packs.

Re: RUF & SR?


We carry both kits and have set vehicles up this way. The Warrior kit allows rears to be run up front without purchasing our Rear to Front Swap kit. You can push the front assembly forward enough to compensate for the longer springs.

If you did want to run CJ's up front, you could do the Warrior kit in combination with the Rear to Front Swap kit.

If you have more detailed questions on this, please feel free to email us direct.

Re: RUF & SR?

Another question.
Does a SR in the front really tame the front end any?
The canyon state kit claims this.

Re: RUF & SR?

If you've got more than 5.5" of lift, you'd better be ready to get a new driveshaft too. With the CJs up front you'll have to re-do your steering 'cuz it puts the axle way forward. Brad.

Re: RUF & SR?

Yes it does, I've got the Calmini S/R in the front and while it's no Cadillac, it's nowhere near as nasty as some other Samurais (and other 4x4's) I've rode in. As for the argument that panic stops cause the front end to dive dramatically, I can assure you that with the stiff Calmini springs it just isn't that bad. I have no experience with a S/R with SPOA yet however, softer springs might exagerate the effect. I plan on doing this to the Hardtop next spring along with RUF so we'll see what happens.
