That's, uh wait, WTF is going on? What's to keep the non-sprung shock from compressing under the vehicle weight.

Dammit, my head hurt reading the contractor/ beer thread, now this. Is my calendar broken and its actually Tuesday?

Your poo piped piece of shit won't make it past the driveway. Especially with those piece of shit cobbled together shock things. There are plenty of low budget rigs around here. The difference is the quality of the workmanship. Yours has none.
