it was bought pretty much stock then fixed then built and wheeled (and broke for that matter ) for 4 years, it just wasnt worth making a build thread how it was setup before so i never did.

i wheeled with it for 2 seasons; coil front and leaf rear and loved the stability the leafs give thats why i kept them. plus coilovers joints and dom are damn expensive.

Rob, it looks like a revolver type shackle to use as a anti-wrap bar...
