Re: Sidekick: Straight axle -VS- 3 inch Calmini su
Well I will have spares for you this spring [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img].
Suzuki and GM made these for road use and mild wheeling,I Love my stock tracker, and will probley buy another for a daily driver if the WeaselMK3 is too much to daily drive once done.
They are made for 215's not 31" tires or 33" tires.
If you rebuild them for offroad you have to expect this.
even Jeeps have the same sort of problems with axles, thats
why the dana 44 swap is so commen with them.
If I was to stay IFS I would make my own replacment for the
diff housing and get custom axles make that are bigger.
but frankly for real hardcore Offroad IFS sucks. (Rocks baby)
Thats why I asked you what you want to do with it. for bolt in Calmini can set you up with thier parts and you can keep the IFS and it should last longer.
But for me it isn't worth the money and it would still not have the articulation the toy axles and coils will in the end.
SO If 30-31" is okay them buy the replacment bits as you go and bring spares. you may be surprised and quite happy with
