    Ok guys and gals, we are ending the sale of the AK-57 Suspension on Friday. But I know there are a few people who are interested, but can't come up with the cash that quickly. So here is our offer, if you make a non-refundable deposit of $200.00 we will reserve the sale price of $450.00 plus $50.00 S&H for thirty days after the end of the sale (Nov 17th). If the remaining balance is not paid the regular price will have to be paid. Give us a call and we can work it out for ya.

    How much is it without the coupon? Do the leaves come assembled?

    Normal price $550.00 plus $50.00 S&H. Sale price is $100.00 off. Yes the leaves are assembled. They were also re-conditioned (cleaned, re-painted, re assembled with new plastic spacers and hardware). Since it seems you missed the other post the coupon code is ak57 that will give you a hundred dollar discount. If you want to take advantage of our deposit deal you will have to give us a call.

    The kit comes with modified spring packs, the shackle droop brackets, hardware, new bushings, track bar, shims, and bump stop brackets. Basically the only thing you will need to buy is a longer brake hose and longer u-bolts depending on what you have now. The track bar is not pictured.

    This kit was designed around the stock bracket, not a flip. But to answer your question you do get more flex with this set up IMO. You are basically bolting on 24" of articulated droop. But again this is to be used with the stock hangers.

    I've seen both setups in action, the AK-57 kit flexes much more, hands down. It's a bit more expensive but well worth it IMHO.

    Why not do a combo of flip and ak57? That looks like it would work even better. I saw the pic on the old site of an ORD flip and "springer" setup and it looked better than the stock hangers.

    I dont have the ORD flip, i still have stock hangers. Plus that would be 8inch lift, i'm looking to go down to a 2-4 inch.
