Finally got the SPOA done. Now the only thing left to work on is the draglink.

Yeah, its just a start. At least I won't be hitting my front shackles as I drive through every cross-ditch. That was not a pleasant feeling.

Both the Breeze and Sky make good kits ! Get a TRUE hi steer kit [meaning that both tie rod and drag link are above axle]!Ill see what i can do for pricing ! I put the Sky kit on and am VERY happy with it![cheers]

Hey Burge! Is it a true hi steer or just a drag link over? The drag link over is a cheaper alternative and can always be upgraded aswell![cheers]

I'm not sure about what size tires yet. I have 29" el-cheapo all-terrains right now. I'm not going to go any bigger until I do something about the gearing (its just too hard on the clutch). The planned order I have for improvements are as follows:
1. Spring Over
2. Rear Anti-wrap system (haven't decided which type/brand yet)
3. Rear (and maybe front) locker
4. Re-gear transfer case (Calmini 5.14 to 1 gearset or similar)
5. Bigger tires
6. (The Pipe Dream) A VW diesel engine

Any suggestions/ideas about my plan?

Realistically its probably going to take me a year or more to plug away at all of it.

Looks good .You will definately need some kind of anti wrap solution.Breeze trac. bar works good.Breeze crossover steering also works good.I think they may also have a full high steer but it is a bit more $.My rig is very similar to yours.I haven't done any gearing yet but it will be t-case gears or kicker 3 I am leaning towards Kicker 3.I am currently rebuilding a VW 1.6na diesel that I will swap in this spring.Good luck on the rest of your build.

Heres the website www.acmeadapters.com
I've only seen the acme hi-steer on the above website. It looks good and it seems to be pretty fairly priced.
I don't know if anyone around uses it though?

Breeze does have a true "high steer" for Samurai axles. I'm not sure on the cost, best to contact them for pricing if you're interested.

i beleive mine is the breeze cross over, i have the 4.13:1 t-case, 31's and locked rear and welded front. I love everything in my set up but my welded front.

the rocklobster gives you a 10% reduction in 2wd.

Thanks all for the pointers.

I'm going to wait on the Hi-Steer for now. At this point I just want to get my Sammi drivable for the spudspudspudspudspud Run. I know that eventually I'll have to do a proper fix on the steering system.

Hey Chilliwack i have a spare drag link that you might be able to modify for use for the next year or so! You can have it modify it and save the money for the hi steer ![cheers]

Thanks Mike,


We already lengthened the original. It was just a matter of welding it properly before I take it on the road.

I'm not doing the welding myself. Thats why its taking a while to get this phase of the project done.
