OK to use 2\" perches with YJ\'s???

OK, I know Brent, we just got off the phone and I'm asking this again! LOL Just need the reassurance ;-)
I just ordered the HD perches from TT and Brent explained that they only sell the 2" wide ones and that I'll be fine with the YJ's. Still OK when I also have Toy axles, and a 4.3L? Hope so! Any thoughts???

Cheers!
Steve

i would think so being wider isnt realy going to make a difference in strength plus if you ever want to use narrower springs for whatever reason you can still

I disagree, your U-bolts will be more likely to walk around. they make 2.5" perches for a reason [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

been running them for 2 years 8 months havent had a u bolt problem yet maybe it is because i put on straight when i tightened them if they want to move in or out they would have to get loosened to do so

If you are concerned abour walking, just make up some 1/4" plates that will go on each side of the original perch to fill the gap. The reason nothing is walking around is due to the spring center bolt. I have seen some break, but not on a Zuk.
