if you're not worried about the $$$, go for sway-a-way.

it would be best to go with the 2"x16" remote reservoir dual rate race runner shocks.

the coils rating, according to what you described, should be 250 & 150. if you are fond of jumping and bashing, go for a slightly higher rate.

i've had several setups, none was more efficient and funn
as this one.

and remember - POOR PEOPLE CANNOT AFFORD TO BUY CHEAP PARTS ............. (i'm poor )
