2.5" wide springs on 3" wide perches...good - bad - ugly????
I don't see why it would be a problem.
Also, its spelled "perches"
Depends... Take a look at my D60 from hard wheeling with big tires.
not good to do. ubolts will not sit propporly if thay rest against the perch and not the springs. but if thay dont hit then dont see a problem.
im putting a d60 and hd d70 under my jimmy and i have to move the perches on the d70.i have some 1/4 wall 3" box steel that i can make a set of perches with.i dont want to order a set for it since they would end up being close to 70 with shipping here and i wanted to make them a little longer to help control axle wrap.i will be running 44s with possibly a supercharged small block.
only thing is like ai said ubolts need this ( I I ) 90 degre to every thing. if your perches are to long and wide thay will be ( / \ ) and not stay tight to the axle and springs.
I ordered my perches from summit, I believe moroso made them in the chassis section. They are 2.5 inch wide for 3" tubes. Summit has free shipping I believe to all 50 states. But they have a 10.95 handling fee. Check it out and see if it applies for you too. THe perches are 19.95 in the catalog.
