    Looks like it will give you more flex but would also increase sway/yaw. Would probably have to go to disconnects and a rear sway bar if you wanted to run it on the street. You know just thinking about it I think I just came up with an idea that would effectively do the same without the sway problem that this poses. Off to the drawing board.

    I'm not sure I would want those on an off-camber situation (see my post under "this is why I dont have a 12" lift). If you want to be a ramp champ then I think they would work great, don't get me wrong, flex is great, but how much is to much. I looked at the website and didn't see any off camber shots at all, just mud and ramps and a few shots going straight up the rocks. I dunno, maybe Shawn can test these for us [​IMG]. It looks really cool to get that flexy, but I want to see some reports out here in Colorado or Moab where ultra flex isnt always good.
