You should be fine with your coil spacers, but with another set of blocks you'll need a set of traction bars or personally, I would do a new leaf spring back.........

Yea you will most likely get some mean axle wrap with 8" of rear block, especially with the Spartan. Do you get any axle wrap with the current setup?

The ideal way would be new springs or OUO traction blocks but you are looking at roughly $1,000 for new springs and $1,400 for traction blocks. A cheap fix would be a 2" full length add-a-leaf. It will stiffen up the rear a bit but not as bad as the short add-a-leafs do.

If you put a spacer on top of your current coil springs it is going to bow your coils, it wont hurt anything it just looks wierd and will affect the ride some what. As for the rear you will get axle wrap i have it with my truck and i am in desperate need for some traction bars. As for the leafs check out truck toyz website they have a pretty good list of stuff on there including the replacment leafs you are looking for.

I believe they used a Skyjacker Soft Ride add-a-leaf on mine...around $150 a pair I think.

BTW SWEET bike
I'm not 100% sure but those Tuff Country one's look like the shorter ones. 3" is alot of add-a-leaf...will probably stiffen it up quite a bit. To be honest I didn't notice a real big difference with mine...maybe stiffened it up a bit but nothing that I really notice. It was placed within the spring pack, not at the very bottom. I was told that makes a difference on how stiff it rides. I'm at 6" of block now and not sure if I have axle wrap or not. I have bad take off shudder but the driveline shop told me it was all due to my angles and carrier bearing. I was going to order the OUO traction blocks but have to spend $700 first to get a CV and better style carrier put in my rear driveshaft. I'm getting that done next week so should know then if I have an axle wrap problem. Going from 6" to 8" is really costing me some $$.

Thanks, just sold the bike to a guy in Saskatchewan actually. I bought a Haulmark race trailer for our dunes trips so the bike had to go. I want to start building another WCC CFL this winter...that or murder out a HD Springer Classic.
