    Just a couple of pictures of my B-Line modifications. I took these a few minutes ago. Someday I'll get a write up with all my pictures of the Springer Suspension posted.

    Sweet! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    I was looking into that suspension setup, but i don't think it would be great for jumping and gettin some air.
    I want to see how much Mad Flex that gives you now.

    You don't want it for getting air or towing...

    You wouldn't want to jump with this set-up. I had it on the lift today with my new 36" long shocks mounted inboard. It drooped so much that the driveshaft bound up with the rear yoke of my t-case but the suspension still had more it could go!!!!!! My 38's were hangin way below the truck...

    Why not do that setup but have a mod to lock it up when you don’t need the extra movement. Looking at the set up, if you were to extend the upper bumper bracket toward the back of the truck you could bolt the lower travel arm to the upper bracket, this would limit the travel and when you need the extra flex you unbolt it….

    You could also just drill a hole through the B-Line bracket and the cantilever bar. Then insert a quick release pin to lock it together or unlock it. I myself trailer my rig to events so wouldn't need anything like that.
