    I have hear nothing but good things about these shocks, but I am curious do they let the suspension flex just as much as any other shock. Are they truely an all around shock that can do it all. The web site says they acn do it all but does anyone have personal experiences with them. Thanks

    I guess that says something if no one has these shocks, either they are not that great or too expensive for what you get.

    I was talking with an Edelbrock rep about them this afternoon. From what he showed me, they're absolutely awesome. The problem is that they don't show shocks for lifted applications over 4".

    I have voluntarily axed "Pancho" in a bandwidth conservation effort [​IMG]<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1>Edited by Pugsley on 05/10/01 07:09 PM (server time).</FONT></P>

    well I know cutting Pancho must have been very difficult for you, but I am sure Steve appreciates the kind jester. Hope this site helps.

    I have them. No problems at all. I really love them. I never flex mine, since it's stock, but offroading the suspension feels soft, yet firm. I think that shocks will always limit travel unless you move your shock mounts. Look for Depdog's website in <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.off-road.com>http://www.off-road.com</A>. He made some custom shock mounts. I think the UAV (ColoradoK5's rig) has custom mounts too.
