    Also just pulled out the lawnchair and the beer for this one:


    I wouldn't run a set of Revolvers in my Suzuki much less a full size. I had them on my blazer and you'd be better off buying Deaver springs (or similiar springs or (if you have the dough) linking up your suspension and going coilovers...


    I've spoken with a lot of guys about this product and my "less than happy" dealings with product. I lean toward just getting some flexy springs and lifting a tire now and then. You can flex to the moon but isn't the idea to actually to move forward down the trail (without breaking parts)?

    MY OPINION:
    THEY SUCK and I wouldn't let a blind monkey (if I cared for him) drive in a vehicle that was equipped with such a hokey [not honkey] set up. Especially on the street.

    Save your money!

    But seriously,
    I have spent a great deal of money on suspension parts, kits and cheap tricks. Some guys bad mouth me for having a fab shop build my 4 link but I saved and scrimped to have quality. Add to this that some guys really get butt hurt if you talk about a part that they just spent their hard earned cash on. They swear by it but in reality it is causing a host of other issues that they are too blind to see.
    :D I can look back and say that the Revolvers were a bandaid fix to an issue only quality linked suspension could fix. I had them and hated them and I can't find one good thing to say about them other than...
    they are made of metal. :D
