He sounds like a computer armchair prick or maybe just a weekend armchair prick.. At any rate probably best not to have him ask the questions when you get ready to order the parts for your coil conversion.That said, I just hired a MSME from Iowa St, who, prior to heading to college, was an ASME Certified Master Mechanic at a Ford dealership there in Ames. He has a weekend hobby ... modeling dynamic suspension systems (no sh*t, that was his answer during the interview.)
I would think if you have the ability for independent validation you would have the ability to make your own mounts. At no time was it my intent hurt TT’s feelers but Clay ” @TachedOutOffRoad” was asking me what I thought about the kit and I was telling him that I didn’t know anything about it but if TT did their homework it could save a bunch of time.I'd be happy to put him on a task of independent validation of the setup, in-part because:
I'm interested in the coil-sprung setup for the 55 I just bought (but have yet to go get) from @TachedOutOffRoad.
He'd be interested.
I'm interested in the answer, just in case I ever road-trip the result.
I just happen to have
a set of low-mile (137K) FJ62 axles, (that came out from under the donor for this FJ142 in the making, which I've owned since 2006, as well as
a set of ARB-locked 3rds w/4.88s
Nitro chromoly inner axles and birfs, etc for FJ62 axles that are destined for same.
So, I'm a customer, I guess, or will when I drop the credit card at ya on the phone. Sounds kewl.
Just to be clear I’m not implying he didn’t get the numbers correct but we’ll never know for sure if we can’t ask the question. Even if he dint get the numbers correct it’s not like you’re die in a fiery crash on the first test drive but as I understand it this kit should be more than a lateral when replacing your leaf springs and I would want to have a clear understanding of those benefits and be confident the parts were manufactured to take advantage of them.
