SOA questions

im doin a stroker swap in my 94 yj so i am buying a ford 8.8 with 4.10 gears. Im contemplating whether to go spring over becuase with the spring over i could go stock springs and id have a decent ride.Correct me if im wrong here. My question is aside from welding the perches on top getting a longer brake line. What would i have to do to the axle and the the rear of the vehicle etc.

My second question is this will give me 4-5.5 in of lift in the rear but i have 3.5 in springs in the front what could i do to compensate? And if i went spring over in the front what would be involved. Most of who has donre this and what are some ideas you guys have im open to anything sooo....Please Help.

TIA
Bill

The rear you basically have figured out. Check out the Terraflex rear shock relocation bar, main shop in my area doing SOA setups is using this more and more. You will need a CV driveshaft and a SYE (super short is best) to do a SOA. For the front you need to get a high steer setup going. You can purchase a kit or have someone fabricate it for you (had mine fab). I am not positive but if you have the front and rear at different heights you might bind up your drivetrain. Slight modification was also done to my front shock mount up in my fender area. Hope some of this info helps.

Before you go any further with your plans-----HOW STRICT ARE THE LAWS IN YOUR AREA? It would suck to build and get a citation a week later. I once lived in a state that would pull out a ruler if they thought your rig was too high.

I don't live there anymore
