TT Hy-steer + SPOA + 3\"springs

Anyone runnin this set-up? Was told it would work, but now that it's here it ain't boltin' up. Am switching to rears up front to see if this will allow the hy-steer to work. Brad.

Re: TT Hy-steer + SPOA + 3\"springs

Would a drop pitman arm do the trick?

Re: TT Hy-steer + SPOA + 3\"springs

got the drivers side mounted up---can't stick a sheet of paper between the drag link & springs. The pass. side won't even come close to mounting. Before ordering, called to double check that this set-up would work---was told "as long as you're not running tall perches, it'll be fine." BS. I guess it's a good thing that the rear springs should be here Monday.

Re: TT Hy-steer + SPOA + 3\"springs

i guess i should clarify a little....i'm using 2.5" lift OME springs off the rear of a sammi with the overload leaf taken out.....i guess the 3" springs are that much taller....i have never had any contact between my drag link and the passenger side spring.....

Brad,

How thick is your spring pack, and how tall is the perch? Also the 3" arch is going
to add to the stack height. I would think rears up front would help you get the clearance.

A drop pitman will only make the clearance close more. Maybe after the shorter, flatter springs?

Your looking to make the drag link as level as possible.

Re: TT Hy-steer + SPOA + 3\"springs

BTW--I guess I should clarify, this is not my samurai. One of my wheeling buddies decided we'd break in my new garage by doing a simple "bolt-on" job. He showed up at 8:30 last night with his shiny new hy-steer kit. Simple-2 bolts to the caliper & drill 2 holes where the tie-rods go. At 1:30 this morning it still wasn't done. As I sit here---it ain't done. Matter of fact----guess it won't be done till we get them new springs.

He's running standard 4.5"-5" pads + trailmaster 3" lift springs (3 pack) + factory shackles.

He's already thrashed his drag link 3 times & bent + twisted his z-link twice----he definately needs this mod.

The links that attach to the top of the knuckles is there any way that they could be turned over to clear or maybe swapped sides even. I've never seen one of these but I'm guessing that the tierod ends should face downwards.
