Swapping from spring-under to spring-over is not a simple cut-and-paste maneuver. The springs need new perches welded to the axletube, and on thin wall housing such as this Suzuki unit, care must be taken to not warp the tube. Plus, the caster angles of the knuckles are important to proper steering and must be kept leaned between 5 and 10 degrees back, which can become an obstacle when trying to also get optimum driveline angles. Along the lines of driveshaft issues, this Suzuki spring-over kit includes spacer pucks to lengthen the shafts. An even better option is to get the driveshafts lengthened with new tube.
