Re: drive shafts in, may have a problem

well crap that sucks, but i should have been more carfull when i meshered it, i dont relley want to put more spring in it, iv got the rough contrey 6in. leafs and thay seem prity stiff, i may go with a set of zero rates

oh i wonder if a shakel flip lift would work? ile 2in. mabey? that would be the best way to go i think

dose that add mutch flex?, its allso my driver so i dont relley want it to be to sqwemy on the street and i spend most of my off road time in the mud and on trails not rock cralling so i might see if i can whate on making a change till later when i have money agen

thanks for the help

Re: drive shafts in, may have a problem

shackle flip will get you about 4"...but perhaps you could flip them and relocate tem vertically to only get you a couple of nches....that might be a better idea for you. the zerorates will not change the wat it handles...only the height.
