Re: SPOA - my springs keep going bad
Well the fronts are near negitive arch anyway. once SPOA they go that way. For the rears the big problem I
have is Spring wrap, (My springs are now somewhat S shaped.) I am going to CJ springs in the rear soon
with a traction bar and getting ahold of another set of rears for the front and adding a panhard bar.
going to the longer springs also improves the ride, but you either need to relocate the mounts for the
shackles or add missing link type devices. Also depending on the spring you may need to redrill the
spring perch holes so the axle only moves 1" not 2" (2" is really too much to move the rear axle, the tire will
then hit the rear of the fender well.) I have heard of people using toyota car springs in the back also.
the big thing with Spoa is that if you wheel hard, then you will wrap the rear springs unless you control
