I looked at the links Darren put up, but nothing helps me in what I want to do. So I was planning on getting some 62" nationals but I don't have the money. So as an alternative I'm thinking of going with 63" Chevy springs and going under the axle.
I need some opinions as to going about this. Nothing that I have researched said anything about going under the axle. So advice is welcome, "Using the search feature lecture" is not. Been there, done that. Thanks,

AARON

why would you want to go under the axle, the chevy's only give you 3"-4" of lift, if you SUA them, you would probably get negative lift if you got any at all...

I heard that, I'm getting over 24" with mine now and still improving. As far as the chevy's, I bet I can beat them and get a better departure angle to boot.

hey I know this will be like taking to a wall, but you will get about -3" reverse lift, but a 3'7" shackle would help. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> great pinnion angle to, P.S. sounds like you need a jeep!

Is that wacky DRM up to this??? I would hope its a joke and if not theyll work great just let us know how it turns out. Maybe even a write up on the new hit trend of spring under reverse shackle toy minis <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0">

Yes it is for a pre-runner set up. I want an alternative to $500-600 springs. Since 63" chevys are an inch longer than the 62" Nationals I was looking into, I was speculating on those.

Aaron----Been there. Done that. During my very first ARCA event in March of 2000 in Florence,AZ I ran about about a 62" long custom pack under my Yota rear axle. There was bad with the good. The tendency for axle hop going up steep stuff was 100% gone. The tendency to hit every rock on the pack greatly increased,too! I've been modifying my Yotas since 84.....so I gotta poke some fun at some of you 'newbies' that were crappin' diapers back then <IMG SRC="smilies/crybaby2.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/clown.gif" border="0"> hehehehe

But I'm not going to be doing rock crawlning
I need a long spring pack to allow the most travel. I don't need to worry about the rocks really much at all. I only do mild trails, and mostly desert stuff. I know this board had an abundance of info and wanted to see if there was enough people to swallow some pride and help out a little bit.

When you had the 62" pack, what kind of travel where you getting? And what about the hangers. Where were they relocateed? Thanks for some real help.
