wheelie bars

Postby nocents572 » Mon Mar 05, 2012 11:17 am

I've been giving some thought to changing from the old two tire street style wheelie bar that I have now to a single tire set up that a lot of people are running now. Anyone have any input, positive or negative? Any help would be appreciated.

Scott, I've always thought you guys could use a heavier bar. I say go for it, you guys need something that will handle the weight if you need to lean on it. I'm lucky my old heap only needs a wheelie bar if I crank the floor jack up too high in the front :D

all funnen aside, we built this sub frame (stole the idea) so you didn't have to lay under the car to put it on:

most build one like this, kinda standard to the industry, this one is 1-1/4" thick wall molly, it is laying upside down:

i adjust mine closer to the ground closer than most do, around 3" off the ground on a level surface.

Thanks for the help and the pics Tony!
Jason, I am changing the front end from a Dana 44 to a 30 and I'm pretty sure with the weight loss it will come up a lot harder! I think I'm gonna go ahead with the change. Thanks again!
