3/4 Elliptical.....

i havnt had any luck finding what i need, so im just going to post it.

i want to do a custom 3/4 elliptical to my bronco 2. the leafs are on the outside of the frame, and what i had planned would allow more compression as well as more drop. i was going to make a bracket off the side of the frame like the stock hangers are, to mount the 1/2 leaf for the 3/4 elliptical, and run limiting straps front and rear to stop the leafs from opening on steep hills.

does anyone see a problem with this? im running skyjacker 6" softrides right now, and it flexes decent, i just want a little more flex and a softer ride.

also what length of a half leaf should i run? i was thinking in the range of 16-18"

anyone had any experience with 3/4 elliptical? good or bad?

i have done this once. you have to run s10 or explorer leave spring hangers. it moves the springs under the frame. then you will be able to figure the rest out. super easy.
