...So that tosses out Toy's using the Chev Swap then, since it's not a 'manufactured suspension replacement kit' and doesn't 'fit in the stock location'? Or anyone who's made their own front hanger for their springs?Originally posted by Big Rich:

I thought about that one for a while to try to figure out exactly what they meant by it. It says stock oem is allowed. It says aftermarket is allowed. It then says it must use a certain material. I took this to mean you could use stock, aftermarket, OR a custom one as long as it was made of this type of material, but it could easily be interpretted your way also, which would make sense and be more in line with what I was hoping for.Originally posted by Bob:

My guess would be they'd use a C-shaped fixed caliper as we did in mud racing at one time. The caliper is held horizontally & slid over the tire. BTW, we have since abandoned this system as it was constantly a point of argument among both judges & competitors alike. For example, if a tire measures exactly 38" (allowed by rule) then the tire will be tight in a 38" caliper. So, how tight is allowed? Does everyone push exactly as hard as the next guy? And if they say the caliper has to fall over via gravity, well then a tire that's exactly 38" won't go. And if you're the guy who has a tire at exactly 38", wouldn't you be ticked? Then we had things like 38X12.50's sliding right through the 36" caliper while we had to force 33X12.50 TSL's through the 33" caliper. After a few years of fighting & a few hard feelings, we went back to "stamped" height. Metric tires are credited as "equivalent" sizes (example, 315/75R16's are ALWAYS called "35's"). The only ones we still measure are the old 78 & 85 series tires. And for those we still use the caliper.Originally posted by jeepruler:
<STRONG>What type of measuring device do they use for the tires? Mine are right at 38" horizontally at about 5 lbs. Vertically they read 35" at 5 lbs.</STRONG>
