people have 3 wheeled for years with coil under, no reason you cant as well.

Its just shittier because you run the risk of losing a coil.

but with a deep cup on the ram, and a proper coil perch made for the axle, youre chances of losing it are much less

No the Cylinder wont bend if you dont use powerballs, if fact if you dont put the powerballs on right youll bend a cylinder. He told you to use powerball because the coil under method has to be done perfectly to get it to work well while 3 wheeling. You can use coil-under but you may keep poping out springs. Coil over with powerballs is the easiest way. Oh yeah dont use hyme-joints unless your installer really knows what hes doing.

ok sweet thanks for the info, so if i get a nice little like 2 or 3" peice of sceudal 80 pipe and notch it and weld it to the rear axle then put the spring over that it will greatly reduce the chance of the spring popping out?
