View Full Version : rears upfront kit
04-25-2006, 12:28 PM
well im lookin at a sammy and its got rears upfront but with stock everything, so right now the d-shaft doesnt connect. rocky road has a rears upfront kit tha extends the frame and gives you a plate or soemthi8ng so theres no drilling of the springs, but i was wondering if anyone has an old one they want to sell, or if there is any kit made in canada. thanks[cheers]

or does a 6" shackle work and just extend the d-shaft or get spacers

you can re drill the spring mount about an inch back then run longer shakles and a drive shaft spacer or the breez folding shakles and a drive shaft spacer works good too

guess ill do the longer shackle cause the guy is throwin some in along with the ford shock towers

make sure you brace thouse towers when you put them on or thell just take out the frame wher you welded them

what do you mean, i thought you just weld them all around??

oh and how would i properly measure for shocks, just take the shocks out then try and max out the flex and measure from the shock mount to shock mount then have it sit flat and measure the same???

flex it out and add aleast an inch on the compression side

i guess i shouldnt forgot about longer brakes lines. whats everyone using for extended brake lines, i saw on pirate some guy was using lines from a mid 90 tracker and they were 21 1/2" long i think. sound right???
