No boots. The top bushing you want around 30 ft lbs I believe. obviously you can't get a t-wrench on there. Just enough to slightly compress the bushing is fine

I dont have a torque wrench so i just poor man torqued it till they slightly smooshed. Nothing crazy. Same with the bottoms. Cant really overtighten anything it seems. Especially the bottoms bc of the steel bushing. oh and btw i didnt have to spread the rear tangs if fit perfect! And me either. Its firm and responsive through turns and such. And then its smooth over rough terrain. Never feeling to soft or to stiff. I guess speechless is the description we are looking for! Lol

I hope so. I only have three options left- Rancho 9000XLs, Rancho 7000s, and TF Elkas.

Haha, yes it would. I found probably the only 918L and 916L set anywhere. I hear the original Nitrochargers were softer than the Sports but they are discontinued. I called everywhere (all the usual dealers and all the local shops) and then discovered that a local shop (Rokmen) had a set left. So I figured why not. If they suck, they suck. Those Elkas sure look nice though.

That's great. The OME was my first guess. Did not know they discontinued a model.

Yeah, I even called ARBUSA. They confirmed that the Nitrocharger was discontinued in favor of the Nitrocharger Sports. Apparently, everyone was asking for the Sports and the regular Nitrochargers were not selling. When I told High Country (very good 4x4 shop here) they were surprised too. They aid a lot of Jeepers ask for those regular Nitrochargers.
