Escort YJ section for pictures and tech support
« on: September 02, 2018, 10:07:36 PM »

Not being 100% onboard with bolt on suspension kits, the Escort is designed to have the four of shoes welded onto the front and wear wings. After all the shoes are anchoring the axles to the frame. In a way itís similar to factory. Welded shoes over wings and bolt on shackles.  I sell RockyRoadís YJ kit it flexes better SPOA but the ride comfort is there because itís just math.


Four short springs that are also narrow HAVE to be stiff to hold up the weight of a vehicle. Yea our rigs are light but the only way to improve the ride quality to a 10 rating is YJ springs. Longer and wider they HAVE to be softer.


Our concept of a YJ suspension kit includes a couple of unique features.
-Solidly spaced internal front frame stops.
-Ability to change center to center width of front locating pins to accomadate different and wider axles.
-Pinnable frame to shackle pivot link limits ability of suspension to unload without warning.


The rear shoes are self evident on placement around the wings.


The front wings require a simple modification to both outer plates. Inner plates remain intact.
First thing is make a line a bit over an 1Ē along the outer wing along and under the frame.


Cut on line.


Hammer out til the short plate makes good contact with new Escort outer shoe. The front edges at the top align weld it in.
