SJR Wheeler Build 90 Legacy Wagon 2013

Recommended Posts

looks rad

 

whats the master plan for mounting the front of the spring?  if you just stick a bolt through it, wont the axle try to twist it off when it articulates?  or will the bushing be good enough to absorb that twist... 

 

*went back thru the pics*

 

ok so nvmd it is bolted thru... i suppose this unit isnt going to have crazy rock crawler axle travel anyway, so maybe it doesnt matter so much.

sitting on its own  springs in the rear,  these are EA82 rear wagon springs, seem a little stiff, I have a set of ea82 fwd sedan springs that are lighter, may put them on , will know more after the car is drivable, its a roller again now onto the front, still haven't found my set of axles Ill need for the Dualrange swap, need to clean the shop, the weather has turned been rainy, cant wait to get this thing on the trail,

If you do not add a panhard bar you will end up ripping those shock mounts off.

You WILL have side to side movement  with those springs.

went with  8" strut extensions, I had a set of 5"  from a Impreza I had , so I added 3"  with the Outback struts  for a overall 9" Lift
