Spring Reversal VS Non Spring Reversal

no typical formula, location of the fixed mount, for the most part is based on tire size and where I want that tire to sit inside the wheel well. I stuck a 60 axle in the front of the hippies 40 using 55 rears with the axle offset two inches from center. If you like I can get you a pic/measurement?

Very nice work on the aluminum. Did you use a form block for clearance on the coil over and compound bends?

Uhmw

Just looked up UHMW, that is an awesome idea. How well does it hold up to heavy trail abuse? Also, would 60 springs up front have given you more flexability?

it will smash at the edges and gouge eveywhere else. BUT! it will glide over rocks

fj60 sprigs would provide more flex, but would not have as good of an approach angle. with the OME 40 springs, you still have a decent size bushing and with the spring flipped and the axle pushed forward another inch,... we have a bitchen approach with 42's AND plenty of flex

Would you use 40 springs or 60 springs in the front with 37's? Are you using 40 springs because of the larger tire (42's)? I allways thought you were better off using a 60 spring in front IF you could?

IMHO....
the advantages of 60 springs, long n flexy with big bushings....
the disadvantage of 60 springs, Longer than 40's...
the advantages of 40 springs, the short side makes for bitchen aproach angle when flipped.
the disadvantage of 40 springs,.... tiny bushings self destruct after a GOOD run.

late 40 springs or aftermarket springs/lift springs will usually have a larger bushing and still give you the better approach when you flip them.

when forced to side between flex and approach,.... I will pick approach every day! quality over quanity!

good eye! they are older OME's. they have a slight positive arch, but they do sit nice AND have a good size bushing.

and Thank you!

Do you have something in mind for the lower link cross member? Is it going to tie into a full belly skid plate?
