IMHO: Breeze is one of the best because there is no guess work in setting the perch angle. It's all built in. RRO has about the same setup. Everyone elses are ok but if you don't set the castor angle right.....Shim....Shim....Shim.

I always could set the castor angle right by matching them up witht he stock perches...but my rear kick axle was a pain in the ass.

All you have to do is read the instructions [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] and I like Petro's because you can fine tune them for you individual needs. ie ajust the caster to where you want it, inboard the spring a little. ect ect [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Best SPOA perches ?

Here are a really nice set of perches We just started producing. I showed them off at the Zookimelt this year and sold several sets. They are extremely thick and strong and are the most versitale spring perches on the market. Perches can be moved inboard, outboard, tilted for optimum driveline angle, can be welded on all four sides (not just two!) for Maximum strength and come with built in relocation holes for repositioning the axles one inch in either direction.

I sell them for $10 each with a Lifetime Warranty. Satisfaction is guaranteed! If you purchase them and are not 100% satisfied send them back for a full refund!
E-mail me if you are interested in a set.

Re: Best SPOA perches ?

Do Breeze's SPOA perches work like rocky roads?
I know with rocky roads that bottom part touches the old spring perch and then you dont have to mess with an angle finder, but do Breeze's perches do the same thing? Im just wondering if theres a special reason you listed them.

Re: Best SPOA perches ?

NO! The RRO and a copy from Sky Mfg. use legs to set in the stock perch. They have an angle built in for USE WITH STOCK SPRINGS. Any other spring combination and the angle will be wrong. The Breeze Perch wraps 180* around the housing, and needs no other gussets, additional welds, etc. Easily set any angle for your particular set up. They fit very tight to the housing and are the best bang for the buck on the market. $35 for a set of four either 4.5" or 5.5", and come with the best instructions available from anyone.
