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
03-20-2014 03:37 PM
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
03-20-2014 01:26 PM
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?
02-08-2014 09:38 AM
Ibuildembig Good deal!
02-07-2014 09:35 PM
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.

Help me, Obi Wan!

Hey Big,
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.
12-09-2013 08:49 PM
Razzer Yes
12-09-2013 08:29 PM
Ibuildembig You mean roll the diff?
12-08-2013 10:10 PM
Razzer I hate auto correct .... Cut and turn. Very sorry I didn't proof read my post. Lol
12-07-2013 11:18 PM
Ibuildembig Custard?
12-07-2013 01:46 PM
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

That's a good idea.

I know my springs have sagged a lot over the years but even then sounds like it would send it into the sky. I am thinking of keeping it as is and then hi line the fenders. Then have the clearance without the height. I currently have 35's but wanting to go 37's or bigger depending on what I can find. Bigger is better right! LOL

ziloh22 man im really debating doin this.. i already have 2 axles with SOA setup..

Ok thanks so since I have a 4" spring lift doing a SOA will put it really up there unless I swap springs. I like to keep as little lift as I can.

Just notch the lip of your skid....you'll be fine...

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 ?

That lip provides a lot of integrity. That is why it is shaped the way it is. You need to weld something in to reinforce where you cut that away.
