New spring perches
Longer shocks
New ubolts

Cut old ubolts
Weld new perches on top of axle
Possibly need to move centering pin in springs to bottom of spring (new bolt?)
Mounts springs

Measure for shock length
Possible driveshaft lengthening needed

If your not planning on running huge rubber, keep it spring under. If you go SOA a lot of stuff is going to have to change. Plus minimum ammount of lift with SOA is like 4-5 inches. If you add some springs and a shackle lift, throw some coil spacers or lift coils in the front, new shocks all around, a little fender trimin and some 33’s you’ll be laughin! :mrgreen:


I'm just cheap... and cheap makes you creative.
