Leaf Springs on a Firewall Buggy
« on: Mar 12, 2017, 02:07:51 PM »
Ok I building a firewall buggy and starting to get parts for the suspension together. I am going to run 63in chevys in the rear I am going to be using the sky offroad kit 14in shocks and double shackles. As for the front I need some ideas I cant do ruf because my rear leafs are not useable. I was looking at the allpro springs and the sky offroad crawler spring only looking for about 2-3in of lift but I want good flex and soft ride offroad anyone have ideas.

Old Man Emu. About 2" lift nice and soft and reasonably flexy. Can be had for about $250 for the pair.
