|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!...|

|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.|

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.

|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..|

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?|

|Ibuildembig||I mocked rear pinion angle, front is stock. Rear is approx 2 degrees below driveshaft centerline.|
|06-25-2013 02:50 PM|
|amerdt4||Did you mock the pinion angle at full droop or sitting on all 4 wheels? Did you set straight on or a few degrees under to compensate for torque wrap under load ?|

|amerdt4||If I cut a piece out , what would I have to reweld? I was thinking just the lip of the skid plate|

|yj93ben||Big, how ya doin'. Haven't been on here in a while. I see your step by step is still at the top. Finally got that 8.8 ARB 4.56 in my YJ. What do you think?|
|06-23-2013 07:47 AM|
|Ibuildembig||No it's not even close|
|06-23-2013 06:26 AM|
|amerdt4||*I meant the skid plate|
