THIS KIT ASSUMES AN ADVANCED LEVEL OF FABRICATION SKILL

SKILL TAKE IT TO A PROFESSIONAL.

This kit is designed to very flexible and allows a
variety of versions of the installation. Please note that Additional parts will
be needed to complete your project. This kit gets you well on your way.

A FEW BASIC POINTS:

    FRAME A MINIMUM OF 43.5” FROM THE SHACKLE HANGER TO THE FIXED EYE HANGER
  • YOU
    WILL NEED TO MOVE THE CENTERLINE OF THE AXLE AT LEAST 4-6” FORWARD OF THE FACTORY
    POSITION FOR A 35” TIRE – ADJUST ACCORDINGLY

YOU WILL NEED TO FABRICATE AN ADDITION TO THE FRONT:

  • FRONT SPRINGS CAN BE SET UP SHACKLES
    FORWARD OR “SHACKLE REVERSE” (SHACKLES AT THE REAR OF THE SPREING)
  •  KIT CAN BE SET UP SPRING UNDER
    (ORIGINAL FACTORY SET UP FOR AXLE) OR SPRING OVER USING SUPPLIED AXLE PERCHES.
  • Differential side of housing will
    require grinding for u-bolt to fit, and perch will need to be ground down to
    fit on diff housing and maintain same height as tube side
     SPRINGS CAN BE RUN IN EITHER DIRECTION TO ACHIEVE PROPER CASTOR 
 
  •      CENTER PIN IS OFFSET  
  •      WAGONEER DANA 44 CASTOR SHOULD BE AROUND 6*
  •        (WITH ANGLE FINDER ON FLAT TOP KNUCKLE – ARM SHOULD BE TILTED 6* UP)
  •       LEAVES CAN BE ADDED TO OR SUBTRACTED FROM PACKS TO CHANGE FIRMNESS 
  •
