Spring perch placement

Post by MudRaider on 10/19/2011, 12:55 pm

From the 94 Montero SR that I will be getting the engine from for the MudRaider, I will also be getting a factory air-locker/disc brake rear-end. The problem lies in that the Sr is a coil spring rear truck, and the eventual recipient of the axle, the Shogun, is leaf spring. How do you know the correct angle to set it up to weld on the spring perches? Wouldn't it be better to rotate the axle to where the driveshaft/u-joint are more straight line than being at two angles like they are stock?

it depends on the driveshaft setup. if it is a double cardon style, then yes, aiming the pinion towards the T-case will work out. but if its a standard style, or slip yoke style then the you want the angle of the t-case to match the angle of the pinion.

So then if I measure off of a normal Mitsu rear and match the angles to the coil spring axle tube and new perches I will be ok?

preferably you want to use the ubolts and bolt the axle and perch onto the axle to hold it in place. loosen and adjust till your tcase and pinion angles match, then tack the perches in place, and then remove the axle and finish welding
