Here's a link with a few pics to give you an idea of what's lacking under the rear end TayJ.

Thanks all, this is the first leave sprung crawler I have delt with. Blocks will be gone, going with better leaves, probably the trail gear ones and going to make an anti-wrap bar.

What else do I need to do to make this thing ready to rock and in a way that we won't need to worry about it?

So the decision has been made. Going to keep running the 40 inch Iroks but going to scrap the toy axles and swap in a Dana 60 front and 14 bolt full float rear! More than likely it will still be sitting on leafs front and rear but the idea of a rear four link is being tossed around.

So we got it sitting on the rear axle again with the block under the spring so it will be sitting more level so we can get started.

While we are waiting on the axles and new wheels we are going to cut off the rock sliders, remove the body lift and put the sliders back on.

Your front spring perches look kinda scary in those pics. I have heard of sas spring perches that weren't reinforced enough breaking loose.

Swapping in D60 front so we will have a chance to make real strong perches! Thanks

Anything stronger than what's under there will be a good thing. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/rodent.gif" alt="" />

BTW, what's that little pickup I see a corner of to the right? <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cyclops.gif" alt="" />

Blocks had nothing to do witht he problem - they're mounted on top of the springs as a spacer.

Those leafs simply have no ability to prevent axle wrap... three thin leafs w/ no overload - they never had a chance.

An trac bar is the best bet if you need to keep the thin pack. Budbuilt has a bolt on unit.

I'm guessing since the rear is much lower than the front in the first set of picks, they just threw it back together with the blocks above the springs instead of the blocks under spring.
