View Full Version : 1inch?

04-02-2006, 04:35 PM
I have a set of trail tough spring perches, these have three holes drilled into the perch itself to choose from them when doing a spring over, also I have a shackle revesal on my front end, will pushing the axle forward on the ajustable perches have any negitive effects on my suspension? Its 1inch but that is enough to stop my tires from hittin the body of my rig. Thanks for any tips or info, or pics to help me out.

It will not hurt you at all. Go for it.:mrgreen:

yea you will have a problem with the drive shaft, with that extra inch it does pull out the shaft, but you can get bigger spacers. and in the rear, the shocks rub on the gas tank if you move it back. i did that and had to redo my axles. needless to say, is no fun.

but as for the ride and function of the spring (yj) and the position of the axle and the weight being moved foward it dosent change the integrity of the spring?

When I moved the axle forward 1" on the stock springs, I actually thought it rode better. (Although I made some other changes as well.)
