ya, i buy all the peices i want, i don't buy kits. they always put in crap i don't need. i was wondering about any reviews of these springs. i've used many springs soa, but never these. just curious if anyone's used them, or knows anyone that has.

oh ya, since we were talking soa, the bolt on soa is junk in my opinion. you don't get the ground clearance by having the bolt on parts still dangling underneath.

Yes Dave I have used them on my last two builds now, they work well but will still get some axle wrap with them. the best thing is the flex they get and second would be the ride quality. They start out stiff and end up soft you will loose an inch or two from initial ride height. Here are some pics to show the difference in these SOA versus the stock lift. I also use the soa perches as they help a bit with the axle wrap as well.
stock

RE SOA



Ended up like this with body work, D60's and 37" tires




Anything else you would like to know?

I have had them on my YJ for about 3 years now and they have worked good so far without much axle wrap. I put the 6 leaf packs on the front and back of mine since I but a v-8 in mine.
