Breeze Axle Spring Pads

I was just wondering if getting the Breeze Axle Spring Pads will make a real difference with axle wrap. They are longer than usual according to the web site at 6 inches. I am going to be going SPOA soon and was wondering if ordering these would be better than picking them up from a local retailer.

Thanks

Re: Breeze Axle Spring Pads

I have to figure out how to make one. If anyone has plans, especially for Toyota axles, let me know. I have a hard time just with the theory but thats also cause no one I know has 1

Re: Breeze Axle Spring Pads

Somebody you know has one, you've just not seen it yet. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

It makes a HUGE difference with 4.16 gears. Before you could watch the pinion fly up and down. Now noething.

After doing some resarch I chose the Breeze anti wrap bar because of it's beef and $219 price tag. I figured it would cost me at least $100 to piect the parts together, make mistakes, spend a full day or two to doing it myself and still not be sure if I got it right. The kit was cheap enough that it just made sense. It also has a really cool joint that allows full flex of your suspension while still preventing wrap.

Re: Breeze Axle Spring Pads

Ok so basically we have a bracket to mount to the axle, a traingulated link, a bracket to connect to the frame and a.....johnny joint or something similar? Correct? Anything magic about the Johnny joint end or no? Heck..is it that easy? [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Would love a closer pic of that end.

BTW..rat..sorry I never replied but your adapters are working out great. Actually I sort of booty fabbed things since I was unable to get the rear flange off before a trip and ended up using only 2 bolts to hold the rear on, and they liked to break, but overall very nice quality product!! I finally got the flange off this wekend (gawd what a pita!!!) and even after beating the adapoter up it mounted right up as it was supposed to..very nice
