Super Scout in Ohio sells them, i don't like Triangle springs they ride ruff and sag pretty early. I like Skyjacker softrides, i have ran 2 sets on 2 differnet trucks and never had any problems with them and they ride and flex great. I just got a used set of Superlift 4" springs and installed them on my 1980 scout diesel tonight, i hope i have as good luck with them as the Skyjackers

HUMMMMMM I have Skyjackers and wish I had Triangles! The new Triangle front springs are much better than the old style. How old are yours

Sounds like Terra-izer has better luck with Skyjacker than I did.

I installed my SJ 4" kit.. and the rear never sagged - it just never lifted!

I measured 'before" with the hardtop on, and "after" with the top off.. and netted a whopping 2" of lift from my "four inch" rear springs. The fronts were 3.5/4"..

I tossed the SJ rears into my parts pile and went SOA in the rear with stock springs.
http://www.SuperScoutSpecialists.com sells the Triangle 4" lift.

If I buy another spring-lift, that's the route I'm taking.

I have to agree with Terra-izer. I am on my second set of the "new" Triangle springs and they are sagging just as bad as the first set. If I take the shackle bar off one of the shackles or the other will fall flat against the frame. I might do a RS and adjust so the flexy springs will work, but I will probably just ado a SOA instead.

What do you expect sheet-head <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0"> hang'n out on the Heep board when you own a Scout. You should be banned for that.

Oh you'll get plenty of smart ass remarks here don't kid yourself, but you'll get some real help here, including mental if you need it. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

That's what happens when you own a Heep too long.

I put a set of Triangles on my Scout back in February. I haven't noticed a bit of sag since I put them on. They do ride a little rough, but I think that can be fixed with a longer set of shocks. I think that the Rancho 5000's that I got from Summitt are too short. I'm not sure what I'm going to try this time, but deffinitly something different and a little longer. All in all though, I'm very happy with the lift, it was some of the best money I've spent on the truck, it really makes a world of difference.
