Dude, you are twisted, but in a good way

Beadlocks will be here next week.
new spring rate change
relocated the shocks for a little smoother articulation

You were running a stock driveshaft on a four link?????
I'm surprised that all you were dropping was springs

flipped the draglink and moved the front trackbar
working on a complete over kill onboard air system
Hydraulic bump stops front and rear
Oh ya, the best part!!!!!! new subwoofer and 5 channel amp, I can now rock my tunes yo!
Gee, and I thought it was just another pretty face

Yeah, I mean, after all, you are building one major slinky...

front is no problem,

Like I said, they will look way cool sticking out through your fenders

rear... well that is an issue.. most of the current commercial kits do not jive with my rear axle position and arm setup..
Well, you said you have that fancy tube bender, put it to work

Tell me about it, I'm going to send myself to the funny farm trying to come up with an arm ratio that gives me a reasonable pinion angle deflection. One side I get rise, other side drop, problem is there is no middle that I can find. If I could figure out an equation to represent the bloody mess, I could take the derivative and I should have it. Hah! Not only is my body old and feeble, so is my brain
