Rear leaf springs


Hi everyone Im new to this site and new to daihatsu but loving it there a lot fun any way I was wondering about putting my springs over axel instead of under to gain some lift would I need longer shackles or would they still work


In a word, NO.

In a word, NO.

If you do a spring over conversion it will lift the vehicle body, but not the engine and transmission, and the clearance under the axles will remain the same, the vehicle will become unstable and everything you used to catch under the vehicle will still catch.

You will have to lengthen all your brake lines, your steering column, your gear sticks, and anything else between the body and chassis.
