63\" springs for Yota link

Bare in mind this is a rock crawler so the double shackle aspect isn't something you'll likely want to do.

If you are looking for springs for a Toyota, I would check out www.aor4x4.com</A> . They specialize in Toyota's. They do rock crawlers and they have sponsored our race truck with springs and we haven't had a single problem with them yet!

Someone had posted a ? about doing longer springs in a Yota and I'd lost the thread. This was recently posted to a list I'm on so I passed it across.
Do you use the std Alcan or the 'johnnie jointed' springs ?

I have never heard the term 'jonnie jointed', but here is an attachement of what we have and a link to the page of their website where you can see the whole thing. Including the insides of the orbit eyes they use in the solid mounted end of the spring.

Orbit Eye. That's the term I was looking for. "Johnnie Joints" are a Currie product. They're sort of a large, rebuildable spheric brearing. Starting to see them used on crawlers for suspension joints. Very similar, if not the same as the Orbit eye.
