hahahaha funny you should ask....I have been waiting to upgrade and bent the snot out of it again. looking hard at the Currie set-up. Just not sure about the Hiem style joints.
oh ya did a number on it...again.
also jacked up the Control arm brackets pretty good. found a good little spot to screw everything up at once....nothing a 10# sledge won't fix.
good to see you guys too

John seems to be very happy with the hiem joints on his. Says it increased the steering feel

I talked with him about that. he said that the only thing is you get a little clicking sometimes. The Currie just gets such good reviews it's hard to not give them a shot.

I've been looking at the currie system to beef up my steering to try and fight dw and try to lift back up higher. Think the tougher metal and beefed up tres would do it?

I can't say enough good things about the currie system. I was really surprised about how much the on-road performance increased.
