Thread: Spring over lift?

  1. #1

    Default Spring over lift?

    Anyone on here do a spring over lift on a scout II? Thinking about doing one but wondered what to do with the front axle next to the diff where the u-bolts are? I'm thinking I'll just set it up and mill it flat so the spring has a good spot to sit but just wondered if anyone has done one of these lifts and could tell the pros and cons. Thanks for any help!

    What i did was modify the leaf spring perch, and the dif side that your thinking of milling i just grind down the big bump thing that the u bolts clip into in standard SUA setup

    I heard about the chevy front but don't want to shorten. I think I'll just mill it like I was thinking. I got access to all kinds of mills so it should be pretty easy. Thanks for the suggestions!
