Re: Pics of Hybrid Rear

It took a total of about 6 hours not including taking it out and putting it in. What took the longest was turning down the sami tubes so that they fit inside the Kick housing

those are 2 1/2 inch superlift CJ's with buggy's made frome the main leaf of rear samurai springs.

Re: Pics of Hybrid Rear

Could you snap a picture of the spring to frame mounting system... Do you do a direct weld on both of them? How do you secure the spring from moving anywhere. Seems like welding to a spring would damage it...

Re: Pics of Hybrid Rear

Glad to be of help. Once you get them out the hardest thing is cleaning all the extra parts off.

Re: Pics of Hybrid Rear

On the Samy end, do you cut before or after the perch? In other words do you have to remove the old perch and cut under or passed it?

Re: Pics of Hybrid Rear

Sorry if I seem dense here, but could you verify what you did? You took a Sidekick rear housing with the 3rd member, and you cut off the outer part of the Samurai housing & machined it down so that it would fit inside the Sidekick axle tubes? So you're using the stock Samurai axles?

Just checking...

Re: Pics of Hybrid Rear

That is how it is done but, I have never heard of anyone machining the housing down. This seems like a bad idea due to the fact that the housing walls are so thin already. Seems like you would be making a weak spot. .02
