Re: ebay - - How stupid can people be?
SPOAs aren't dangerous unless they're done poorly. A lot of vendors are selling inferior mounting plates or advertising kits as "complete" when they're really not.
This guy does not show what his perches look like, only a lifted Samurai. Those perches could be anything... I've heard of people using trailer perches to lift a Sami... He also states that his kits are complete and if he's really running a SPOA then he'd know that they ARE FAR FROM COMPLETE!
High quality 4.5in. Breeze perches will cost roughly $45.00 (give or take a couple dollars) from Tim at NCO. If you just want perches then this is EXACTLY what this guy's selling on ebay. However, Tim will tell you that you'll also need to buy or fabricate DIFFERENT brake lines as the stock ones ARE too short. Then you need to fix your draglink cuz it won't work. And, you'll really need to get the driveshaft spacers because if you flex at max you could dislocate your driveshafts at the slip joint... A complete SPOA lift is more than just the perches.
I don't do any mods without either passing them through this BBS, searching old posts or asking my Sami building friends...
AARRRRRRRG! 1987 Red JX 'vert, 4.5 BREEZE SPOA, SJ410 T-case (next week), 29 Super Swampers... more to come.... AARRRRRRRG!
