payj90 im looking into an soa,spring over axle, conversoin for my jeep, they make kits. I myself plan to do it myself. we have a large shop, i dont know what your working with but the soa could add a few inchs. it will also keep your springs from getting caught up. With some new parts and stuff picked up here and there i think it should be an easyish project. if not, some one who know something let me know and know what i will need.

KE5ETX My advice (I am a Jeep newbie and am following it right now) is to find used- but good- stuff. Check the Jeep forums, ebay, craigslist, maybe your local paper classifieds.

I have found a few things so far in good condition, a lot less than new. Just have to be careful and check out everything, so you don't get screwed.

daddyjeep I am not real happy with my KC's. They have completely rusted out on the bottom where the bolt is. I moved them from the bumper to the windshield and I can't even tighten them up anymore because the carriage bolt inside just spins. I have only had them for a few years.

removing the swaybars on a TJ makes the on road handling very bad. on a YJ it´s only a very small effect. you can also removethe track bar. with leaf springs you don´t need it.

Jeepin1023 You want to blow some money??? Get yourself a 4-wheel drive hardware catalog or Quadratec catalog. Then start flipping through it and see how many pages you have dog-eared. I started out light and now look at me....wanting to do full width axles and play on some real rocks out @ Moab. Once you start, you can't stop!!!! Good luck!!

What about SOA?

I did a spring over on my Sammy for $0

Cut the perches off with a cut off wheel and welded them back on top, cut and lengthened the steering linkage, etc. I rode it and wheel'd it like that for a few weeks before adding shocks, driveshaft spacers, bigger motor, rebuilt tranny,.....

Point is, once you start moddin' it, you're gonna spend more $ than you ever intended to.
