    Default DB2 Front Rocker HELP

    Gents
    I have an '87 DB2 that I am trying to prep. My existing front rockers are not mirror images of each other. I purchased two rockers from Dennis at GMT and when they arrived, I noticed they also were not mirror images of each other. I had a DB1 in the past and the front and rear rockers were mirror images. I removed the existing front rockers and lay them next to the new ones and none are mirror images. The inboard attachments are at various heights while the outboard points match.
    Is this the way they are supposed to be or am I dealing with four mismatched rockers?

    Perhaps check with the Learneds’. It may be the weld fixtures are different.

    Default Swift rockers

    They should be mirror images, left and right both front and rear. In fact, Protech (when in business) made a "Universal" rocker but with the inside spring-shock mount on the rocker able to fit either side with a slight modification. Just cut off the small portion not needed and it became a perfect fit for the side required. It sounds like someone has messed up the welding fixture.
    Good luck with this!

    my DB2 is fairly standard from the factory spec (1987). It has front rockers are handed on this one. No way to make them universal even with the turnbuckle pickup on both sides. They sweep forward and have a bit of an angle on them from the tub to the upright.

    Here's a picture of Dave's new rockers...


    As you can see there's a difference to the inner angle.
    My DB2 rockers are the same angle.

    It certainly is, I misunderstood the original problem. Seems a call to JR is in order...

    Default DB2 Suspension Rockers

    My mistake. The Swift DB-2 front rockers are, indeed, handed. It is only the rear rockers that are mirror images.
