who does these anymore. i know you used to be able to buy them out of the mags but dont remember who used to sell them also what other mods need to be made. need aprox one inch per side to tuck a customers desired rims. any help???????????
Reviving an old post, I recently checked and John only had his personal set available, and the actual MFR doesn't have stock/stock jigs anymore due to no demand.
Just to clarify--- There are two "narrowed" setups---
The arms aircooled.net sold used shorter axles and move the HUB in, not the spring plate like a narrow torsion setup.
(That may or may NOT be what you want. Edit---RLR sells some bits to aid in that potentially huge project...)
Unless you have undying love for some particular wheels only available in a funky offset that justifies dropping ~$1K in parts for 1 inch/side, it's a no-op.
When they were $250/pair no one wanted them, soooo...
For Really Huge Meats under stock fenders, tubbing and a narrowed rear torsion/TA setup is what's required to keep the rim off the spring plate.
Oddly, the std torsion bar will work fine--- just add some tubing to the spring plate bit it goes into to extend it the same amount.
The track width may or may not change, up to you as you get to make the trailing arms unless you go wider, IIRC +1" wider/std length is available, but the spring plate mount needs to move in and change shape etc)
At least a T3 rear torsion unbolts...
(Yes, I have looked into this recently)
Anyplace that sells tubular TA setups in STOCK length/widths can probably set you up for that, and with coil over mounts if desired.
(Wider/longer is easy to find... stock is hard-- might be best to make your own jigs and just make them)
