Soa

is there anyone out there who is running lift springs with a SOA lift.
I got RC 4" spings on mine now and am planning on swapping a ford 8.8 in the rear. While the axle is off, i figure on going SOA front a and rear. I know that id have to get a SYE and CV shafts but I was wondering about tire size and what I could get away with without having to cut into the body.
BAsically, i just wanted to see any projects along the same lines of what I want to do.
thanks..

You best plan on stretching it a bit and/or lowering the t-case a bit because a CV/SYE setup isn't going to be enough with 4" springs, and your going to have to go high-steer up front too.

I'm running SOA with 3" springs which have settled down to about 2" springs. I've had to replace the CV once in the year that I've been running this setup.

You probably already lowered the T-case with the spring lift - right? I also have a 4" spring lift and am considering axle swaps (I'm in Edgewater).

Talking to another guy that has Dana 44/60 and SOA - he thought it would be a bit too steep of a driveline angle. I understand that SOA are normally done with stock axles. Anyone else have some input that may have already done this?

Yes. Me. My previous post pretty much summed it up. 4" springs + SOA + 8.8= too steep. He will most likely have to move the rear end back and lower the t-case and then there is no guarantee it still won't be too steep.
