SOA vs SUA
ok, once again i'm preparing for axle swap. i'm dead on money and i'd like to do it soon, but i want to make sure its good to go in the long run and more advantageous to me. I was planning on doin the SOA while i was at it, BUT seeing as how i'll need a SYE, new driveshaft and ideally an antiwrap bar along with new shocks, i'm thinking about just leaving it SUA for the time being, and later on this summer just gettin some 4.5" springs from RE to clear the 35's that will be on there. i feel my lift now will clear the 35's ok, but not very well once i get to flexin.
QUESTION IS: when you go SOA does it increase the the flex, or just the height? my leafs are already kinda saggy, so they'd need replacing eventually anyway, and at this point i wouldn't HAVE to buy the new driveshaft and shocks at this very moment. if SOA does increase flex i'd probabaly wait a while and jsut go that route
ps. i searched a lot for this but so many threads came up irrelevant to this and i was tired of reading through them and never could get an answer, any input is appreciated.
