Trussed Axle Installed

We had quite a bit of droop with our custom homemade leaf springs, but the coils easily gave us another 3 to 4 inches at the spring which translated to around 8 inches at the tire. In a lowrider Jeep where uptravel is limited by the body, droop is important. Even though it made the install a bit more difficult, we put this picture together so you could clearly see the difference in travel, shock and spring location, and under-axle clearance when comparing the coil conversion and the factory suspension setup.
