2.25" is necessary so the spring doesn't rub on the body of shock.-please confirm 2.25 inch ID spring is necessary.
-please confirm the stock spring on the MAL-601 is 5".
-can I avoid the need to have another spring seat made by using a 5" spring that is of the correct lb-in rating?
-what are good sources to have the spring seat made if I end up needing it?
-is there a link to or does someone have a drawing/schematic of the mattyj brackets that eliminate the cutting?
The stock spring is 5.5" tall and rated for 800lbs.
Some guys have tried just using the 5.5" - 800lb spring if they are light enough.
I found a local machinist to make it buy he wanted 150 bux.
I don't know of a bracket drawing. That would be nice because cutting my frame is not something I'll do without some serious thought.
