If you do it right...yeah you get a lot of extra flex. Mine is short and was basically intended to relocate the chakle hanger and make it adjustable...but do a search and look for a pic Cochese's rig...he has SICK <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0"> flex from his setup

I bought the M.O.R.E shackle reversal kit, and made my own buggys on all 4 corners that are 14 inches long. on the front I had to grind away some of the motor mounts. I have made my own shock brackets front and rear and have the longest rs9000s you can get in all four corners. IT IS SWEET. I used to be jealous of my friends with TJs. Now it is the other way around. At the local 4wheel part center near me, I ramped it last weekend. I didn't score it just wanted to see what it would do before I go to Tellico this weekend. One of the mechanics came out and said he had buggy springs on the front of his YJ and they never pulled away from the frame and bet anyone 40 bucks that it wouldn't work. No one took him on his bet and I didn't know if the worked yet, but after I ramped he said those are the first ones he had seen that worked. They pulled away about 4 inches. the ones that MORE sale are really too short. It also helps if you have proper placement of bumpstops to act as a pivot point.
