Re: Eliptical nightmare.
Hey Alfie, sorry you're havin' such a prob with this mod. If you're not gettin' any additional flex and they didn't have to relocate the gas fill line, then they likely used some really short buggy-leafs. I would love to see some pics of your setup. Yes, they will slap around a bit on the trail, but you can put some rubber dampeners in there to help with that. Also, see what is holding your axle in check. Are your shocks really short? They could be maxing out, depending on how they are mounted, and holding your axle back from it's full droop. I had some decently long shocks when I went SpOA, and using the RRO kit, my poor shocks were almost maxed just sitting in the parking lot. I completely rebuilt my upper-rear shock mounts to allow for a lot more travel. I also made sure I did that before I installed the buggies. Anyway, I might be able to offer some more help if you get some pics up. Another bit of advice, someone else has posted that you get yourself a cheap stick welder and learn to weld. It is easy and worth your time! And it makes building your own zook a lot more fun and cheap, and you won't have to worry about payin' someone else to screw up your rig (you can do it yourself ;^> ).
