just read something where a guy claims he got an extra 150 points on the ramp travel index on stock suspension by just cutting open the clips that hold the spring packs straight. what's the consensus on this mod, silly, or not a bad idea?
again woody, your the man that has the answers, thanks heaps. gotta remember to do that to my 60 springs. it went from a re arch of the originals to maybe 60 rears, but in my mind it was never going to happen, too scared to see that happen to my rig if i stuffed it good and proper.
while your posting, i might as well use it... he he he.
and i read a great article in an australian 4x4 mag about getting people back into fabrication, and less on relying on after market products today. i'm sold, i'm learning to weld, buying a welder and all that stuff. i'm hooked, save me.
anyway, what did you use to pry those suckers open ?
sic. it might be a month before i actually do the swap, i've got a hj45 i gotta get roadworthy for my little brother to start learning in, and the rego runs out in a month and a half. but i'll take photo's write lists of stuff to buy etc, then contact you.
it'll be good for me to contribute for once as aposed to asking the million questions.
thanks heaps man
hey woody,couldnt help but notice the steering box on the outer side of the frame on the first pic. from what vehicle did that come from? doesnt it rub on big tires? coz i mite be able to get my hands one one if not similar to one of those.is it advisable to mount them that way? on the outer side of the frame that is? do i have to cut a big part off the fender? did u have to change the original shock towers?
