Post Buggy Springs

im about to put on the M.O.R.E. SRS kit with the buggys springs and revolvers in the rear. On road how is this going to handle, the SRS should make it better but i hear the Buggy Springs get out of control and you have to go very slow. Just curious before i put it in. Thanks

I'm looking to do that same SRS. Let me know what you find out. Oh and on the MORE website, it says you can't use that SRS with a dropped pitman arm??? I find it hard to believe but does anyone know if thats true?

i have the hole set up and it had to be modified i threw the more buggy leaf away and driled out a yj spring and now it drops like 4 inches, i drive like a mad man on the street and dont use a sway bar with a spring over and it gose great. it is easy to put in and use. dont waste the time or money on revolvers <IMG SRC="smilies/rainbow.gif" border="0"> they are not worth the money. i use a linger shackle and put it at more of a angle, well hope this helps <IMG SRC="smilies/beer.gif" border="0">

I used the MORE SRS with a dropped pitman arm and it worked just fine until I went with high clearance steering. The Buggy spring they have is one of the biggest waste of money you can spend. No flex with it at all. If you are serious about a buggy leaf do like 84 and fab up your own.

Dont be a pussy. I have about 10 inch of lift, have no sway bars, no shocks, and i run a buggy leaf in the rear along with dual shackles. Just have to go easy around the turns. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/jeep1.gif" border="0">

I used the same kit as u on my 72 cj5 and it has made life miserable. the mounting brackets on the buggy leaf really get in the way of motor mounts if u swap out your 6. In my opinion I don't think it was worth the money but I haven't driven on it yet so I will let u know when I do.
