How much suspension travel with beam adjusters

Post by pwmcguire on Sat Feb 08, 2014 9:36 am

How much suspension travel is there with swayaway style beam adjusters? I'm trying to figure out where to put them for use with dropped spindles.

I think you get about 3-4 inches of adjustment with those adjusters.

I think what Tim means is that it depends where the adjusters are clocked-
You can use them to raise your car or lower your car depending where they get welded in- I've seen guys with the adjusters welded in the wrong place, and with them set as high as they can go the car is still too low- and I've also seen a car that keeps bouncing because the adjusters were in the wrong place and the shock towers were cut off when it was narrowed

Just have Tim build your beam all mine work great. You want to use the spindles to get your max drop and fine tune with adjusters. It wlll work and it will ride like a caddy with or without shocks.

Give me a call when you can. Maybe I can answer the question better over the phone.
