Suspension setup

I am in the process of doing a SPOA, I have the springs on top but have many issues to address before I am ready to roll. What I have done is the CJ springs in the rear and Sammy rears up front. I know this is supposed to be used in conjunction with the Missing Links but I don't have them as of yet. I have longer shackles and put it together that way, the shackles are now at an angle,what I am wondering is what problems would this cause. Seems to be very flexy and I think I will have quite a lot of axel articulation when offroading. These are the pictures I realize I will have to trim the front bumper so the tire wont hit under compression, any thoughts appreciated. Missing Links will probably be added but I am on a budget and trying to get it rolling soon.

Re: Suspension setup

I don't think you should have much trouble as long as the shackles are stout. Check out this guy's web site:

He put front CJ springs at all four corners with long shackle's in a SPUA configuration.
