I would like to but with other trips I have planned it just doesn't work out. I'll still be wheeling that weekend just not at twisted trails

You will have it tonight. I worked too many hours last night, dad did some work and got the shock mounts tacked in.

Thanks for all the help Brandon

Edit - Yes 16's in the front getting 100% of the travel from them will be easy.

The 18's are in the back and only getting about 75% outta them

I figured I'd document it here so I don't have to search through PM's if it's all wrong

I'm betting you won't get full motion from your driveshafts.

The front has plenty. That's the reason to limit the rear

I had one that was the correct length, it fit just fine at full droop.
