ball park figure.......sure it can be found for less *or* more
July 1, 2008I have changed my mind again. I am going with the ultimate setup, Fiberglass Mono springs Just one spring per wheel (no spring pack), a lot less weight, and you can even carry a spare just in case you break one,they say you wont, but you never know. I am going with double anti wrap bars on the rear and a single one in front. this should eliminate the rock humping and provide a means to lay the traction on the rocks
July 1, 2008you would think those springs would wrap bad......but no experience with them. as for as axle wrap in the rear, if it cant be controlled with one bar, why would two be any better? its not like one side has wrap and the other doesnt.....id look more into the geometry of the bar you have. shackle angle etc. ive seen them in the front on some heavy rigs..... but wouldnt think it would be worth the trouble on yours. besides front axle wrap doesnt seem to cause the rock humping......cure it in the rear and you will be happier. linking the rear would be the ultimate set up.......
i just like to keep my cost to fun ratio lower than some people.
and steve.......with your tire size and wheelbase your rig works good. only thing i think it needs is to be wider.
just my two cents
July 1, 2008I am not sure how I can get much wider. I am running full with axles with 1 1/2" wheel spacers and 3 1/2" backspacing on the wheels now. Oh and was just chittin ya on the mono and 3 wrap bars
July 1, 2008I think he is talking to me. The other Steve.

July 1, 2008no problem, Steveo, I asked for input. thanks.
I looked up wheel spacers. 200 bucks plus shipping. And I still want some more wheel base. Not sure how yet.
