Front Shackle Reversal- kit, RockLaurence Vintage Auto Parts 50+ unit SOLD

Post by rocklaurence » Sat Jul 06, 2013 1:37 pm

Hello all, I've been a member of the FSJ community for a long time (I had a '67 Gladiator in 1980) and now I'm working Full Time with the new business. I specialize in the FSJeep used parts arena but also have resources in all the cast iron 4x4 parts and the diesel Mercedes http://stores.ebay.com/RockLaurence-Vin ... 7675.l2563 I have also ventured into performance parts for the FSJ's and other 4x4 drive train improvements. For example: Front Spring Shackle Reversal and lift for the FSJ's, NP205 stub shaft to make married T cases into Divorced T cases with a yoke (under development) and Diesel re-Power kits for our Full Size jeeps.
Available Now:

The FSSR and lift are available for $259 shipped

Could use one of these with the optional receiver hitch. Can I just paypal you direct, or would you prefer to do it through Ebay? Let me know and I'll get you the $$ asap. Thanks!

Would be interested to hear from those who have purchased how they feel about the ride/drive-ability on and off the road with the FSSR. Do you have any links you can direct me too for such testimonials? Looks like a great idea!

Have a great weekend!

How about a more complete description of this kit....what else is needed to complete the install. Does the front drive shaft need to be modified? I read under another post it moves the front axle forward 2in and there can be some steering issues.

In regard to the install and other changes, no other changes are required for normal driving. The original shocks etc will limit wheel travel preventing issues with steering clearance and the front drive shaft. However, to maximize the potential of the FSSR you can add longer shocks and dropped bump-stops. Which allows the front axle to droop more and will require a longer splined front drive shaft and extended brake lines. The FSSR is intended to provide a moderate lift with greater ride comfort but is also the beginning of a PERFORMANCE suspension. Lastly, you will need Red thread locker, cut off tools, 1.25" hole saw, drill and other tools for the install.

Due to all the persons looking for an affordable J10 J20 2" receiver hitch, I have one that is being produced and will have it on the market soon. It'll be substantially better and cheaper that what's out there now (or lack of what's out there now). I'll keep everyone posted.

I had a chance last weekend to see the shackle reversal kits on a J-Truck and must say I was impressed by the design and how well it fit to the frame.

Impressed enough that I WILL be buying a kit for myself when the time comes.
Well done RockLaurence Vintage Auto!

I sold #20 and have another 10 sets have been made. The tow hitch process has taken longer than expected. However, I may have one to fit and show this week!
