    Waggy springs on yj
    « on: April 19, 2012, 12:47:43 AM »
    Has anyone here done the waggy stretch? I know Tyson has.  Just looking for tips and tricks from first hand experience.  Already browsed a couple threads else where.  I'm hoping that I can get 2-3" on each end, between springs and perches.

    Anything I should lookout for interference wise?  Hopefully I can pick up some springs tomorrow on my way through LaGrande.

    Got my new(used) waggy springs installed in the front today. With the springs and adjustable perches it should net 3" forward. Also the waggy springs were about the same height as the lift pack that was already installed. My drag link is where I notice the push forward the most. I might have to shorten and redrill the pitman arm. We'll see after I get a test drive in.

    Next up the rear stretch.

    Installed the waggy springs in the rear today.  Rear driveline is almost pulled out of its splines and had to makeshift shock mounts for rear axle.  Its sitting on its tires right now, but the rear shackle mounts will have to be moved back 1.5-2".  Also a small amount of body trimming will need to be done.  I'll try to get some pics in the daylight, and a wheelbase measurement.

    Sweet.   Can't wait to see the pics.  How's the gas tank clearance?
    I watched Jeepers Creepers once.  I didn't realize what it was until half way in.  The Jeeps never came.  The Jeeps never came!

    Snapped some pics before work, will try to post them late tonight.
    Gas tank clearance sucks, I'm trying to get the full 3" of stretch.  I'm about 1.5" under the back of the gas tank skid, with about 1.5" of up travel before contact.  I'm thinking about two options right now.
    1). Let the tank create its own clearance while we are playing in the sand memorial weekend.
    2). Drop skid and cut the small area where contact is possible and make it concave and re-install.  Oh and the tank is full of course.

    Today I went a bought more leaf springs, rear springs from a Yukon.  The waggy springs were flat when loaded.  So I made my own pack using the main leaf from yukon that extends past the eyelets of the waggy main leaf.  Then two more yukon leafs and two waggy leafs on the bottom.  I will get the other pack made tomorrow and hangers welded back on.  Will try to get pics then.  I also cut off the hokey receiver hitch that has been on since I bought the jeep.  I will build my own bumper as time allows.

    Sadly I don't know a lot about Leaf Springs, but wouldn't you want more up swing on those rear shackles? You'd think you would smack things back there. Then agian it could just be the camera angle.

    Got the finishing touches done on the rear springs.  Got the driveline out and am taking it it be stretched tomorrow.  Should be wrapping the main project up.  Jeepwife and I measured the wheelbase today at 100".  Wikipedia says factory WB is 93.4"
