Converting zforce 800 trail?
« on: January 19, 2017, 08:07:21 AM »
I have a 800 trail version cause I live near 50" or less trails but I'm a few hour drive from 65" or less trails. I was wondering if you can convert the trail version with the a arms and suspension of the ex. If so what do you need for the conversion

I would assume:
1. All the a-arms both upper and lower.
2. All the axles
3. All the shocks
4. All the end brake lines
5. Optional-all the fender flairs.

all of what NMK mentioned and you would also need the steering components, not sure if you would need the whole rack assy or if you could swap the tie rod and rod end assemblies only.

The cost of a conversion would be very prohibitive, I would guess. Seriously, you would need one heck of a valid reason to pursue that course of action. If you want to widen the stance, just add some 2" spacers front and rear, and get ready to be covered in mud, unless you invest in the fender flares to keep that mud off of you.

You could also probably get different offset wheels and/or wider wheels as well. of course this would add stress to the wheel bearings as the further out you go from the pivot the more leverage there is to break the pivot point.

Good point that I should have mentioned in my post. The spacers will be cheaper than tires and rims, but both will still stress the bearings more than usual.

Yes, I meant on top of the spacers if he really wanted to get close to 60" wide. I wouldn't recommend it, but it is possible.
