Revolver ride quality improvement

Do the Revolvers improve ride quality that much? My 87 is a reak paint shaker and I will replace the Rancho's with DT 3000 shocks, but the Revolvers might be a cheaper way to go than OME springs to improve ride quality. Just looking for thoughts and experiences..... Thanks.....

Re: Revolver ride quality improvement

Crow, No experience with the revolvers but I know when I took off the Rancho 5000's and went to the cheap gabriels($9.99) the ride improved greatly. 5000's are very stiff. My .02. Jim

Re: Revolver ride quality improvement

dont think that revolvers would be my first choice in your case... rip your springs out, sand them (i know its a hell of a work), oil them dry (ej. 3M dry silicon oil), put them together and give it a try... will be at least 20% better...

another option... finding (near) same lenght leafs in a junk-yard... and play with them...

revolvers are steep w/ 500,- for ride improvement (and dont expect any wonders, there, as their main advantage is tha they will open... but definitely not ON ROAD - so you will not benefit a lot)

any other opinions?

Crow, give me a shout, I can give you the straight skinny on fine tuning your particular suspension.

Re: Revolver ride quality improvement

I've read something about Revolvers being bought up by another company. Somewhere, I saw someone selling them pretty cheap. If I can find it again I'll post a link.

Re: Revolver ride quality improvement

Crow:

I love my Revolvers, as a matter of fact if you want I can take you for a ride in my Sammy so you can see how great they ride when you pick up those visors.

MetalMadeRite teamed up with Teraflex and now they are manufacturing revolvers together. It is probably the best modification that I have made - rides great, is daily driveable and flexes like a SpOA......

Crow, email this week ASAP so we can get together.....
