glenn wakefield....

ok on one of your replys to a post,you stated that you used trailmaster springs on one of your zooks,after removing one of the leafs for a better ride...
my question is i have the trail master 3inch springs(didn't know how bad they were) and a calmini reversal kit in a spring under with a two inch body lift to clear 33's.
now... if i go to a spring over,drop one of the leafs from each pack and loose the body lift will i still be able to run 33's and have some flexing room?????????

Actually, it was on a customer's rig. He's a local friend though so we're pretty familiar with his setup.

We set that vehicle up with SPOA, and the 2 leafs from the Trailmaster springs, he ran 32" tires and cleared them fine. You have some additional room with your shackle setup on their. Theoretically, you should be okay for 33" tires. I haven't tried that setup in particular to know for sure though.

-At the least, you should be close enough to where the 5/8" bushing-flip body lift would get you the rest of the way for good clearance.
-At worst, you just stick one of your Trailmaster leafs back in.... or better yet, maybe a stock spring or two for shimming purposes.

Feel free to email me if you have any other questions about that setup of the SPOA.

what the heck put em all in man and get the feel the flex, the more spring lift you have with a SPOA the more flex is involved!

Actually, the inverse would be true with Trailmaser springs. The more Trailmaster springs you have, the more like a solid block of steel the spring-packs become.

Trailmaster much have gone out of its way to design a spring that cannot flex.

Re: glenn wakefield....

ok guys,play nice ;-)
and yes the trailmaster springs are stiff.
as to the point of thet i can run the driver front tire onto a eight inch cinder block and lift the driver's rear tire about two inches= no flex.
will try the spoa as soon as cash allows.need to get some more things first.
thanks..

Re: glenn wakefield....

dang I had no idea that they rode that stiff! sorry if I busted anybodies bubble or anything I just though the more spring you had ridin on top of your axles the more flex you will receive ( unless it is that stiff!)

The more springs you add, the stiffer it gets, and less it flexs.
