bolt-on perches??

hey guys just how do they get the perches to bolt on safely in RRo's and Calmini's SPOA kits?? I have tried to study and figure it out but it seems sortta tough!

Re: bolt-on perches??

I can only speak to the RRO perches... they are in the shape of an arch (except flat on top because the spring rests on top of them), with the bottoms (legs) of the arch sitting "inside" the tops of the original (welded to the rear end) spring perches. Imagine the letter O is your rear end - you have an upside down U that fits over your O, then plates on the top and the bottom sandwich your spring and rear end in-between. I wish I had a way to draw it for you...

Re: bolt-on perches??

Mine is not welded - you could easily weld it, and I may do so at some point in the future - but I do not have the slightest fear about it being just bolted on like it is now.

Re: bolt-on perches??

Here's the thing though - RRO kit comes with a THICK chunk of steel that bolts under the factory spring perch, then the new perch fits into the factory perch, then the factory shock plate bolts on top. Their special u-bolts then go through both plates. Tough as nails. Or should I say tough as welds?
