Chevy Colorado SOA How-To
Short little video of my SOA (Spring Over Axle) conversion i did a year ago. If you want a relatively cheap way to lift the rear 6" then i feel this is the best way to go. No long shackles hanging down,no add a leafs, and the best part of it is no more axle hop. This video basically sums up how you can do it or at least how i did it.
