Outboarding rear shocks AND upper spring bucket relocation - JeepForum.com
|11-30-2012 11:11 AM|
This is one thing I have been meaning to read up on a lot. Especially for the next build of this Tj, which will be a more low cog build.
Any good write ups on the pros, cons and who benefits more from it? Both the out boarding and coil correction.

|aTX427||From what I read about outboarding, the Ford shock towers will interfere at full flex, which is why I selected the Poly kit. It was between Pply and Genright. Poly was a bit less expensive, but in hindsight I think the Genright has a wider upper mount for better flex capability for Jeeps without lift. If you notice, I have my rear shocks upside down to gain additional clearance. I'll try to take some additional pictures. The work by the way, was done by KrawlTex in Austin.|

|aTX427||I used the Poly Performance rrear coil over kit, which comes with the lower mounts and relocated the stock upper coil mount to correct the spring position.|

Nice work, who's towers? I've been looking at the Ford shock towers and the Poly ones as well. I haven't done much research yet.
Do I see a coil correction kit on there too? I plan on doing both of these when I do my lift.

Out boarded my shocks
Just got my TJ back from a rear upper spring relocation and outboarding my shocks. I picked up about a foot of static travel in the rear. Not sure if it is a good measurement, but I ha 32" to the bottom of my tire in the am 34" in the rear.
