Why install a S.R.S.? Because it allows the front suspension to travel in a much more natural action when the spring compresses. In stock form (shackles in front of the front axle) when the front tire comes in contact with an obstruction, the impact is partially transmitted back to the frame via the solid rear pivot point. Reversing the pivot point to a point in front of the axle allows the impact to be better absorbed by the spring and shackle. The result is a more natural suspension flow over the obstacle. At higher speeds, a smoother ride and improved handling is noticeable, as well as less wandering and darting. The S.R.S. has a very important design feature built into the new front pivot brackets. They move the front axle forward from the stock position, so that during spring compression over obstacles the tire will be less likely to contact the fender. Due to the action of this suspension movement, the front drive shaft needs to have more slip-yoke travel than stock. You will need to have a longer travel slip-yoke installed by a professional drive shaft builder. A stock pitman arm also should be retained (no drop). Kit includes all necessary brackets and hardware.
is welding required?
