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!

Around here, it's sway and track bars. Never heard anyone call it 5th link.

Sway Bars, Track Bars, Traction Bars aka Antiwrap Bars are three seperate devices affecting 3 different axle planes of travel. A 5th link I imagine is another name for a traction bar....
