LJ's do it longer
There is a little more to SOAs than just flipping the springs. To do it right, as far as what most would consider 'right', you'll likely need a trac bar in the rear to prevent axle wrap... and crossover steering tends to be the prefered system. All this takes a little more $$$, but it all depends on what you want in the end.

I ran my SOA for a while with stock springs and an add-a-leaf with the stock steering setup plus the drop pitman but dropped the dampener. You can grind off the stock shock mounts and reweld them on pretty easily. I was running 35's with 3.07 gears in the open d30/35s and didn't need a traction bar because it was so long legged. I went full high steer when I went with 3.5" lift springs and built a D44 front for the beast this winter. I was SUA for alot of years then went SOA and have never looked down.... errr back. Good luck and post some good pictures!
yes it is... but you can run the stock steering with a dropped pitman arm? did you have bump steer at all? this is the only thing that worrys me right now i bought the rustys steering setup in feb it was 250 so i dont realy wanna get rid of it yet. and how bout the track and sway bars i dont have them any more?
