|Yesterday 12:24 PM|
got a few questions about the wishbone. is there a certain length on the wish bone. What was the length of the pipe you used? anything else you could tell on building it would be great!!

|JMO69||Thanks. Seems pretty straightforward. I am eventually going to do this. So I'm picturing this... get every thing on jackstands kinda in place. then removing my bigass 10" shackles. Then putting the springs on the top of the axle with stock shackles ( flipping the Ubolts that go around the axle), and every thing should not be too far off from where it is now. Maybe a drop pitman,( but I think mine might already be.) Does this sound right, or is it not that easy?|

|devilrmk||Its gonna give you about 5" of lift. So 2+more suspension lift than you have now. It will ride 100% better and look 100% better. I had no problems with driveshafts going from the same. Steering should be fine with just a dropped pitman arm.|

|JMO69||OK, here's a question. I've got a big ol' shackle lift and a 1" body lift giving me about 4"lift overall.(33 in tires) A bit of bumpsteer though, and of course VAMPIRE TEETH. It's all good, but I was wondering, since all my steering, driveshafts and such are operating well with this lift... if I eliminated the big shackles and went with stocks, and went SOA instead, do you think there would have to be any major modifications to the shafts, steering, axles etc.? I was wondering if this would give me the same aprox. lift without bumpsteer and not much modifying axles and brakes and such.|

|indirocz28||After putting it off and off, and breaking shit sua, I'm going to try to do an soa using this thread.... Hope to pick up stock springs and shackles this week.|

|Ibuildembig||A couple of them I did lol, I have several now|

|Bigwheelers1||Awesome I think i''l try that right now I'm guessing you got your angle finder at harbor freight ?! lol|
|03-20-2014 02:49 PM|
|Ibuildembig||It's worth a shot. Pinion might be too low|

|Bigwheelers1||great work big! I get the impression we are on the same page as far as our work I've got one question, I did my SOA last weekend, And I have a violent vibration that im certain is being caused from the rear driveline angle, I have the pinion kicked up a bit but i think the problem is up at the top..should i drop the skid down an inch or so?|

|Lt. Ray T.||Well, I done gone and dunn it!. Did my SOA today and look back and wonder, why did I ever buy a RC 4" lift in the first place. Drives better, rides better, I will be needing to do my anti wrap bar soon, but will fab that up myself with some guidance from this place. I like the wishbone you used in here, but think I will go with more of a ladder style. Anyway, thanks for this writeup, it helped a bunch!...|

|jack3d_up||Just read this whole thread and it seems like these questions are repetitive! Looks good man, bookmarked this thread for future reference!|

|Ibuildembig||You can use an extreme drop pitman arm ford a Ford superduty (I think they are the same spline) and if thats not enough your gonna have to swap out your knuckle for one that is flat enough to put an arm on.|

Here's a pic just because...

Help me, Obi Wan!
I saw this build thread when debating SOA vs SUA for my build and you convinced me to go SOA. I bought everything in your parts list to prepare for the build. I eventually located full widths to swap in (J10 44 and 20). I just put em in this weekend.
For the most part it all went well, it looks great! I just have one problem that I was hoping to pick your brain on...
I can't connect the steering. The drag link hits the passenger spring on right turns. Unfortunately my 44 isn't the flat top variety. What are some options for crossover or high steer?
Sorry if this was covered, i read all 21 pages once. Didn't want to do it again.
|12-10-2013 09:16 AM|
|Ibuildembig||I've only done that to one rig in my life and it had 20 inches of lift. 99 percent of the time on a jeep it will never be needed.|

|Razzer||Hey, Big! In this whole 21 pages I didn't see anything about custard turn on the front. Not that this set up needs it, but do you have thoughts on the process? I've had Ty's and hate steering issues. Trying to get it right the first time. Thx|

|devilrmk||You can always pull one of the shorter springs out of the pack to soften them and drop it a bit. I had to do that with mine.|

|ziloh22||man im really debating doin this.. i already have 2 axles with SOA setup..|
|08-02-2013 08:09 AM|
You can run 35's with a soa+2 with no fender issues, 37's with a little fender work.
Soa+2 is. Borderline too tall.

Mine was 5.5" with a D30 and Ford 8.8 and another 1.5" using Rubicon Express RE1445 springs, for a total of 7" of lift.

|jeeperthing||Doing a SOA doesn't it give you like 4" lift?|
