In converting to a rear toyota axle, has anyone left the toyota perches
and welded a set sold for a samurai axle on also. Doing this and leaving
a gap of about 1/2 inch and a drilled plate over the perches with the
hole over the gap one sould be able to use mount things up. Additional
holes are required in the existing perches so that the U-bolts can pass
through them ( instead of around them ).
If I think I get you right, your using bolts instead of U bolts right? Like the toyota guys are doing?
If you do this remember that ALL the forces in axle wrap that occur will be PULLING and PUSHING against the spring perch. Instead of just pushing with a normal U bolt type ste up.
