Iam going to do SOA on my 71 CJ5 with some 2.5" lift YJ springs and also do shackle reversal at the same time. For the spring mounts on the frame should i buy some or build some? I know i will need brake lines drivelines spring perches maybe steering.

Where should i get the spring perches from? Also any other help you can give me.

Thanks Todd <IMG SRC="smilies/jeep1.gif" border="0">

Skip the shackle reversal, and make your life easier. The problems outweigh the benefits.
And what are the advantages again??? <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Gee, that's funny. I was just talking to a guy yesterday that complained about the shackle reversal front mounts doing the same thing. Huh.

Come on now. What are the advantages. And I'll even give you street handling. Which is debatable.

Anybody??? <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

I'm running 38's and haven't cut any sheetmetal on the front fenders. Any SR guys out there done that? <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Anybody else with the SR have any frame cracks?

Anybody else break more front u-joints now after doing the SR?
I would do a shackle reversal if it made any sense whatsoever. But it doesn't Sorry. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">
