Stock Waggys up front and stock CJ7 in rear.Svaras,
What springs did you end up using? How much of a arc, do they have? What is the steel thickness on the rear bumper, with the hitch?
I almost have my frame rails finished, I have a few more straps to weld. I am also trying to decide on the rear bumper thickness, with a hitch reciever. The rest of my frame is also 2x4x.120".
I also have a set (4) of ford 56" truck springs, but I think they have to much of an arc.
Yes, you are right, but believe me that with al the load (cage, spare, fuel tank and cargo) the shacle stays in a better angle (we did the test putting load).Question, looks like your shackle angle in the rear is ~90*. Wouldn't you get better ride quality and spring performance if you relocated it so it was sitting ~30-45*?
No, there´s a 8 mm plate welded to the frame, wich has threaded holes.Thanks for the pics! Did you use a sleeve for the through bolts? If you did use a sleeve for the bolts, did you weld the sleeve's to the frame before you welded the plates? or did you leave the sleeve's free floating?
