I'll let you know if I ever get my SAS done. I've got a set of stock 6leaf waggy springs that I plan on using in the front of my 86 4Runner. I'm hoping for about 3"-4" of lift with a slightly longer shackle than stock.

"Eight" runs them on his 88' v6 4runner. Very soft, very flexy, not a whole lot of lift. His front hangers are dropped 2" and his shackles are under the frame, so that's where the rest of his lift comes from.

too bad the FAQ does not discuss how far the waggys move the axle. so you need to go read the FAQ

seabass, why is it that 75% of post are useless crap?

from the FAQ,
http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=173918

44044's(lift version same thing less lift) do not (by themselves) move your axle forward. They are the same length on the front half as stock toys (22.5"). While they do move the axle forward because of the lift they provide, when they compress to the point that they are flat, it's the same." Estimated 1/2" of actual axle relocation forward.

read the post title ... stock waggys not 44044s.

ignore ... doesnt change the fact that when people go to search they have to sift through crap loads of posts like yours and other in an effort to get some information.

His first question was in the faq, so he should have at least read it, and from what I've found, stock waggys move the axle forward 2", I think something like 24" front half? But you definately are right, there is a whole bunch of crap to sift through. Why isn't that in the faq?

I run waggys and i dont understand why everyone HAS JUST GOT TO KNOW EXACTLY how much they move the axle forward. Build your spring hanger and moooch it forward until you're comfortable that its strong yet as far forward as you can without it looking goofy or losing strength. (this is only a few centimeters) Weld her on.

Drill or blow your holes as far forward as you're comfortable with to locate your springs....Hang your springs and axle...and build your shackle hanger where u want...and you're done. Its all about having your axle as far forward as possible while still being strong when you do a SAS. Its really not that hard.

Of course if yall are asking about lift on a pre86 toy, i wouldnt know...

But anyway, I run a 2" drop hanger and 1.5" confer shackles under the frame on my 91. I don't bother counting the inches of lift cause i honestly have no clue nor do i care nor does it matter....It gives me the space to run about 36s...and since my fenders are cut, i run 38s pretty easily.
