Tired of messin about with .........

Feel like i'm a gonna bite the bullet and buy me some real suspension.
Been putting it off, but the bug is making me look at 1/4 lip, and Coil sprung Samis.
It's unhealthy I know.
I'll have to sell some bikes n stuff.
SpOA doesn't attract me, so that leaves the above. The coil kits are cool, I think if I go coil (basic kit) I'll still need to sort steering problems, right?
I also want to stay legal, the 1/4 lip prolly wouldn't be.
Leaves the coils.
And I need a crawl kit, damn.
I could sell my OME stuff, and Revolvers too, still short by a banana republics national deficit.
What would you do ?

Re: Tired of messin about with .........

I have yet to really see anything do a lot better than a SPOA and missing links to merit the huge cost differential.

SPOA is the only way to lift a Sam in my opinion.

You have OME springs and Revolvers now? Spring over that puppy and if the tire you want still doesn't fit cut the fenders. What are you trying to run, 35" tires?

With a Sam most of its crawl ablity is gearing and driver skill anyway...

Re: Tired of messin about with .........

I am sprung over and I like it. It made the ride better while improving the flex. But do what you want, I would love to try coils or air bags or something that no one else I know has.

BTH I love used parts! Let me know about anything you get rid of. Thanks F_T
