The new "yj" springs are in!

I got my new Alcans the other day, finally had time to put them in this afternoon. They are just like 5 leaf yjs except the pin is offset by 2.5 inches

Dude. How in the hell are you measuring wheelbase? Does adding smaller wheels make your wheelbase longer?

....lay the beer down and step away from the tapemesaure....

Since its hard to tell if your actually in the center of the wheel, you can measure wheelbase from the front/front of rear/rear of each wheel which is a way easier way (not to mention more accurate) to measure wb.

i hate to think of the money you spent on those purty springs when you could have just redrilled the pin in the main and second leafs, then slid the rest over and used the hole you drilled as the center pin...

but i guess i should keep my mouth shut

Looked into that, as well as recombining toy springs, but it wasn't that simple and/or didnt work, not to mention the failures associated with redrilling holes. Hate to think of the money some people spend on British crap...but I'll keep my mouth shut

As soon as it stops raining like a mofo I'm going wheeling. Nothing worse than 35% with no link.

Cow Mtn. is closed...top and doors wont fix that! This is the best side view I can get for tonight, but with the 37s and the offset, approach is getting pretty good for a leaf spring rig.

Those springs sure look nice. What else do you have to do to get ready for the run next month?

Tusker-not a lot to get ready, new ps pump, skid plate for the gas tank, mess with some brake lines, and trim anything that still rubs.

Godzuki-It was 94 stock, and I have pushed the front axle way forward.
