SAS Tracker vitara..

has anyone done an SAS in tracker or a Vitara yet? Just starting over here and was wondering if someone has any photos or additional ideas for it. It is a toss up for Coils or Leafs up front.

Ya coils would be great but the heck do I have to know to install a link system for the front?

If leaf springs are installed I have to extend the front frame (from what I have seen.)

Just looking for ideas and opinions.

I found a couple build ups on the Zuwharrie last night. But everyone is doing something different.

There will be a write up for sure! And lots of beer will be consumed.

I have found a lot on zuwharrie but I was just hoping to see someones up close.

Thanks though!

Project has been started by the way.

Going with a coil setup. Then you don't have to extend the frame to fit the YJ leafs. Trying to keep that stock sleeper look.

I will post the build soon.

Another Zuk forum you can check out is Zookpower...

here's a couple of links -

http://zookpower.ca/forums/showthread.php?t=7329

http://zookpower.ca/forums/showthread.php?t=9256

those are leaf sprung swaps, but there's other stuff on there if you dig a bit...

I would love to if I could get the dam pics off the camera...

Anyways where he is at:

Removed all the IFS.

Picked up a Samurai Front diff (cheap)

Made his own lower coil pockets and Bumpstops (we will call them donkey dinks)

So before he could weld the lower plates onto the diff you have know where the knuckle degree is suppose to be. If it is a samurai it is 4degrees which is great because when the Leaf spring perch is at 0degrees it is equal to get the knuckle degrees.

parts arrived yesterday (dom tube, johny joints and some other junk). That should be welded in by tomorrow evening.

Lower links will be 48" long, It has the high steer kit already. We just have to find the right steering system to fit in there.

Soon as I can get some photos off this POS camera I will post some up.
