    Default How much lift from an SOA?

    I have read many posts, and many articles on SOA conversions. Ive heard anywhere from 3" to 6" of lift from a standard reverse perch SOA using stock sized springs and shackles on a Scout II. Anyone have some concrete numbers?

    If your keeping everything else stock i would say 2-3 depending on if your leaves have sagged at all over time. If your going to go ahead and do a SOA, i would suggest making yourself some new shackles at the same time.

    Default Lift gained

    The easiest way to answer this is to take the measurement from the top of the spring pack to the centerline of the axle(while it's sitting on lever ground). Then add the height of the springpack top to bottom. add the two and that will be the minimum amount of lift + the height of the spring mounts you make.
