Is the spring over axel (SOA) street legal???

I was wondering if you put the springs on top of the axels if it is steet legal or not. I hear good things about this conversion, and was also wondering if I would need an additional lift if I wanted to put 32 inch tires on??

SOA is legal, look under a lot of trucks and even Cherokee, they are SOA stock. SOA gives you about 5" of lift and you can fit 33s comfortably. If you go that route I'd suggest replacing stock springs with some heavy-duty ones.
SOA requires other modifications if you were to do it right. You'll need SYE, steering correction. You'll need to regear to push those bigger tires, too.

SOA may be legal but if you drive the jeep on the street you might want to check local lift laws.I know here in Mass they can be real pains about your heigth.If you go too high(if there is such a thing)you might be asking for trouble when you drive it.

I'm damn near positive there's a few states where the SOA conversion is not legal. It is legal in California. That's the only one I'm sure of. Oh, and Arizona I would imagine. Anything is legal there. The rest you'll have to check for yourself.
