Mounting Coil Springs? Blue Torch FabWorks, Inc

If you have ever tried to mount coil springs on your rig you have found that making the brackets by hand sucks and is time consuming. Bender and Matt got together out in the shop and made a kit to mount coils. If you are insterested post up.

The "BTF Stand-Alone Coil Mounting Kit" makes a tough job easy. This kit comes with everything but the coils. You will receive enough parts to mount one set of coils. Our kit was designed to work with axle tube diameters up to 3 1/2". The kit captures the upper and lower mounting points so you will never have a spring pop out. The upper mount was designed to be used on the inside or outside of the frame rail. The installed width of the upper mounts set the width of the lowers. All of the plate parts in this kit are laser cut from 3/16" high-strength steel. The kits includes grade 8 hardware along with a spacer sleeve to prevent over-tightening (and warpage) of the capture plate and another 2 1/2" sleeve of the same height to keep the spring centered on the perch.

I can't believe the response we got off these yesterday on the first day. Thanks for all the orders.



If you have a custom part you need and need it fast we can cut it in house on our CNC plasma cutter. If we recieve a drawing and you ok the qoute before noon we should be able to cut and ship the part same day. Call the shop for details

made has added a model to the website that you can spin around in 3d with your mouse. It lets you look at how the part goes together.

No, they are designed to be used with a coil over spring for a 2.5" shock. Thanks for the interest.

Awesome product! I'm tempted to use this on the back of my Jeep in order to move my current rear coilovers to the front.

One suggestion: list some compatable coils on your site. I know you carry them but, but seeing them in the online catolog along with the mounting kit would make ordering easier.

Thanks for suggesting that. Matt was looking at adding them to the site, but has not had time to finish.

Yes they have already started shipping. We will have more ready to ship in a couple days. We sold WAY more of them right from the start than we ever thought would sale. If you are interested in a set give me a ring.

How's things in the Ham? When are you going to come down to the shop?
