DROP LINKS

I saw these in use @ GONZOOKIN. They looked like they worked pretty good. Anyone else running them ?...Just wondering what you thought of them.



if you run these..........do you also need to run longer shocks ? might be a good idea I'd guess.
BIG price difference....drop-vs-heavy duty....drop is $270 for all four....heavy dutys are $ 64 [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] Is it worth it ? [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Re: DROP LINKS

I run 4" in the front , 5" drops in the rear . Definitely takes much longer shocks , since they open up so far . I'd say they increased my flex a good 20% overall easily . If you run rears up front , you can use the 4" Breeze drops to compensate for the longer springs . This way you won't need a kit , the springs' overall length comes out perfect to match up to the links , it does move the axle 1" forward but that also helps to clear larger tires at the firewall.....
