Savvy Mid Arm

Earlier this year I read that Savvy was working on a Mid Arm Kit for TJ's. Anyone hear anything else about it? I know those guys keep super busy and this is probably not on the front burner but I sure am interested in it. The Savvy/Currie short arm lift works very well but I would love to get my antisquat a little more reasonable and have been thinking of doing my own rear 4 link but everything Savvy makes impresses me and works well.

I'm currently installing a set for one of their customers. It is the first article so I am going slow and making any notes for the small changes it needs to make it easier to install.

When is the anticipated release date? Any idea on a rough estimate cost? (I know you won't tell us that).

Any pics of the project you are working on?

AWESOME! Looking forward to seeing pictures! My jeep will be on a major road trip until the end of this year so hopefully this can be release by then!

Depends on how many changes have to be made but at this point, it is looking pretty good with only a few small bits here and there needing some work.

No idea and you are correct.

I have many but they are not approved for public consumption yet. When I get permission, I'll post them up.

Rear is upper triangulated with front 3 link with a track bar.

Both front and rear lower axle brackets stay the same. No changes.

Mini trusses for both ends carry the upper mounts.

All joints are the 2.5" Johnny Joints. Lowers are 1.25" shanks, uppers are the 1" shanks.

All arms are double adjustable.

In your mind's eye, what part of what you have do you plan on keeping? Not being a jerk, but the two kits only have 1 part in common that you have now as far as the arms and brackets go.

Trust me, it is easier to sell a full set of arms than a set of arms missing the joints for half the set.

I'm interested to see what you roll out. When I swap axles - I want to change the suspension up.

Very interested in this. I started collecting a few parts for a jk axle swap but can probably use most of this kit to make it easier. I'll be watching
