Rocky Road Outfitters Spring Over Axle Kits For Wranglers And CJs
Spring-over conversions are popular because they offer great articulation. The 6.5-inch Rocky Road SOA system is completely bolt-on and requires no cutting or welding. Installation of this is so simple, anyone can do it themselves. Rocky Road's spring perches are precision built and designed to slip over your front and rear axles and onto the factory spring pads to make the mounting system extremely stable, tough, and durable. The spring pads are fully gusseted and self-align for proper caster/pinion setup. Another great design feature is the extended length of the spring perches, which combats spring wrap. To properly address steering angles, Rocky Road offers two options-an inexpensive drop pitman steering arm, or its High Steer OTT steering system. Also included in the SOA system are Panhard/track-bar mounting kits, longer brake lines, parking brake system, sway-bar mounts, U-bolt skidplates, and long-travel shock mounts. Kits come with all necessary hardware and a comprehensive installation manual. Your Jeep will perform great not only off-road, but will also be well mannered and stable for highway driving.
