Question Scout 800 CPT reverse shackle - nervous installer

All,

I'm having a shop install the suspension kit and reverse shackle kit from IHPA on my '66 800 and they're a little nervous about it. They're worried that the front will sit higher than the back when it's finished. Has anyone had issues with this?

Unfortunately, the CPT install guide says "Scout 2" on the cover even thought the #IHPA rep said it was "universal". Could be but it doesn't have info for installing the kit on an 80/800. Is there a different guide for the 800 or an updated version?

Any pics/tips/info/advice would be appreciated!

Thanks!!!
Chris

Yes it is possible that the front might sit higher but it will depend on your installation. If it does we normally level the vehicle with a shackle adjustment in the rear.

Although we do not have specific direction sheets for the install on a Scout 80/800, the install is the same with the exception of the front hanger location and rear shackle location. We have this in house sketch which shows to locate the front spring hanger fangs 1" back from the front of the frame. The rear shackle position could vary a bit compared to what is on our sketch as the weight on the front axle is different between a 4cyl and V8 but it should get you in the ball park.

Thumbs up Re: Scout 800 CPT reverse shackle - nervous installer

Jeff,

You're awesome. Thanks for the quick response.

That definitely helps. Is that measurement for a 4cyl or v8? Mine is 4cyl, fwiw.

Thanks, again!
Chris

That was from a V8. 4cyl should be similar or move the hole forward a tad to say 7 1/2" from the body mount, instead of 7 5/16".

Thanks!

What do you consider "front of the frame": Pt 1 or Pt 2?

Interesting sidenote. I didn't realize they '66 & '67 frames were so different. Or is one of them modified?

Position 2 would be considered front of the frame. Yes V8 and 4cyl frames do have some differences in them.
