Looking to improve my ride quality...

I'm looking to get new shocks and springs. i was going to run Nth 4.5 coils and RE monotubes but Nth won't send me the springs. They were ordered two weeks ago and now they are saying they won't ship the springs because they don't want to split the kits and springs because they can't keep up with the demand.

any suggestions.

Currently I have 4" skyjacker coils and springs. Looking to gget about 4.5" no more out of them.

thanks.

From another board; rumor is something is up with Nth Mobility. Northridge 4x4 has been unable to contact them and has since removed them from their website.

That being said, have you looked at the Currie springs? I realize they're only 4" springs but you could add a 3/4" spacer.

So Tyler, are you looking at going higher or are you looking to improve your ride quality?

That doesn't sound good at all.

It's just a rumor at this point.

from what I understand, they are just having trouble keeping up with the orders. That's why they arn't going to ship individual parts for a while.

I would like to improve the ride quality. i have an email sent to currie and havn't heard back about their progressive springs yet. Eventually I plan to run tube fenders. I'm running 36 " tires right now.

I was reading somewhere that they(Nth) were bought out, and are in a transition. Some one was complaining about no phone answers or e-mails from them.

Yeah - I was reading on another forum about people not getting any e-mails from them, or even when they call there wasn't an answer.

Just might have to wait it out.

I ordered it through a local shop. Apparently they call a different line because they always pick up right away when they call.
