i swear they change the name on these things every few months to try and fool people into thinking these are any different than the crap they were selling before. :beatstick:

They're more suited for making some DIY Moon Boots.

There is a nice set of adjustable ACR struts on ebay right now with springs. LINK

wtf... what makes ebay springs SOOOOOO appealing to every n00b?? Seriously curious. I mean if it's not blatantly obvious they're marketed as generic garbage with little to know info, BS brand names, the average price of $29.99 should give it away... If it sounds too good to be true...




At least you made the right choice to start instead of having to replace everything after the cheap shit fails.

Nothing wrong with the Bomz sleeve kit Ive used them several times you just have to be willing to throw most of it away.

Open the box grab spring and put in the trash along with the instructions.

Order springs 7" long 2.5 diameter about 250lb will work for front. 10" 2.5 diameter 200lb for rear.

Go to local metal supply looking for 2.25ID .120 wall pipe and 3/16" steel plate

Cut 4 5" lengths of pipe and 4 3" diameter circles with a 2.25" hole bored in the center. Slip the circles over the pipes exactly 3/4" and weld. Use a muffler clamp to hold them in place

Cut off stock spring perches with plasma cutter keeping strut emersed in water BE CAREFUL!!!!

Slip the threaded collar onto the new perch along with the spring and top hat assemble like usual.

^That's a heck of a lot of work to save a buck, and worthless unless said struts were valved to match said springs.
