ok rookie question, ive been told its mostly better to run spring under on pre runner type applications but im curious as to why? seems liek a spring would work just the same either way but im no pro. i know its supposed to help with axle wrap but can anybody give a little more input why?? thanks

i think it has alot to do with rebound and compression too. dont remember the specifics do a search on the subject.

more wheel travel......more up travel from ride height.......less wheel hop and wrap up.....and all this while maintaining a super low ride height with a large arched pack.

yea all i have heard is more up travel as matt had said but I think if your running springs this would be the best way to go. IMO

i assume u ment this statement to apply to a tension shackle setup?

Anyone can call me to explain the spring under setups if you like.
I’m a shop guy, I can’t write an online novel.
