I mentioned this a year ago .

I've read it has really helped a lot of 43" sx owners. Since this is a very large issue with them.

IMHO, if you are running full hydro, don't do a 3-link and panhard... just do a 4-link.

Make sure you don't use the Canadian side of the tape measure.

Welded on a 1/4 inch round stock bead.

The only thing gonna fix those rims are new rims.

But yea....for as much bitching as he does about the rims, he spends a lot of money on things that aren't the rims.
