RRO Spring Perches

I bought these a month ago, but finally got the axles out from under my Sammi, since I am preparing it to be welded, and noticed that when I set them in place, the front measures 5.5 inches taller (from the factory spring perch), and the back measures 4.5 inches. Does this make sense? I have a hardtop Sammi, do they have a natural 1" lift in the back from the factory, or is this just an honest mistake? Just curious, I think I'm gonna have to call RRO, but maybe there is a reason they sent it like this... Help is appreciated.

Re: RRO Spring Perches

Sounds to me like they accidentally mismatched your order. Did you order the 4.5 or the 5.5" lift? You should double-check by calling RRO. I run the 5.5" RRO, and I believe they are all 5.5" (which would make sense).

Re: RRO Spring Perches

Thse are the correct perches. Due to the diameter of the front axle and clearancing for the diff, the fronts are taller than the rears. Once on the vehicle though, it will level out.

Re: RRO Spring Perches

So even after putting them on the axles, and measuring the distance from top of the new perches, to the bottom of the old, you're saying these are correct? I would think that a 5.5" lift like I ordered would be 5.5" in height increase from the old perch to the new. Maybe I need a little more clarification..... Thanks in advance.

Re: RRO Spring Perches

nu,nu,nu,nu,no. My Breeze perches from NCO were the same except for the one for the right front. It was marked with a dot so you couldn't misplace it. It was cut different to fit around the side of the banjo housing where the front 3rd member fits. I really think you have 2 different size perches.
