i got spoa, i love it, cheap, effective, durable. i went to a trailer supplier, and bought the springs pads for 7 bucks a peice, ubolts for 6, nuts for about 50cents, made the plates out of some 1/4 or 1/2 inch plate, reused teh shock studs *cut off then re welded to the axle* all in all i think it cost me about... 75? 100 bucks? can't remember. but i do have my own welder, and everything i need to set a pinion angle. took a day.

Yeah, what he said !!!!

If you're going to do it yourself, they are about $600-$700 installed at No Limit.

I was looking at the breeze and the parts for spring over with the cross over steering (without shocks and extended brake lines) was about $1000.
the total setup costs 600-700 from no limit? Do you have anything to prevent axel wrap? or have you had any problems with it?

Do all them parts fit the samurai fine just like parts you would buy from an offroad specialist?, have you had any problems with the parts? what did you do for steering? Do you have anything to prevent axel wrap? or have you had any problems with it? What about extending the driveshafts?

Thanks for the help!
This looks like the way to go!
