Nolen...I think I need to be your investment adviser:D
Looks :smokin:...when I replace my springs I'll be able to fit some 37s. They sag so much now and I have plenty of room for 35s.

Then you would be broke....I spend all my $$ on Cruisers :flipoff2:

I could have bought a whole new "Kate" for all the $$ I have lost in the last 2 years with my "investments"

At least I have something with Kate besides worthless paper!

You should have seen me getting those shocks in place with 200# in them. It looked like a monkey fucking a football :eek:

I am hoping these will really help with the front end bouncing. They are 50/50 dampening/rebound.

I was running FJ-55 rears and FJ-40 rears, reversed on the front.

I just replaced the fronts with CCOT stock replacement fronts...reversed, and the rears with fresh FJ-55 rears.

My rear 55 springs were hammered...they had an "S" shaped bend in the front by the military wrap where I tweaked them before I got a traction bar and they have just gotten worse and worse.

Also, I had a 2" lean to the right. Now with fresh springs it is only .5"

I will never get rid of the Cruiser lean :mad:

My has a nice lean to the driver side too...just get some big guy to ride shotgun with you and you wont notice it...
Some kid at school asked me why mine leaned...told him because its not how big it is, its how you use it...he has a f150 with 38s...he's going to 44s soon...:rolleyes:
