    Not too bad for a Suburboat.

    If ya can, turn your truck on that little hill with one front wheel and one rear wheel on it, diagonal from each other, and stuff them, see just what that looks like, similar to my pic there.

    It has a 4 in. skyjacker lift, I like it, its not to stiff or to soft. I think i can get a little more flex, I'll try what you say 4xcrazy.

    Disco's are way cool. I hit my inner fenders when swaybar disconnected on really twisty stuff, like FR42 /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I agree with everyone who said disconnect the swaybar. I disconnected mine, and the ride is about 100% softer. It felt like a whole new truck. Before I disconnected them, the tires would not rub the inner fenders. Now that the swaybar is unhooked, the tires not only hit the inner fenders, but the truck flexes so much that the tires have actually begun to rip the outer fenders (the body panels) in half! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif The truck also stays a lot more level when flexing. I really do need to do more of this /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif

    Well i didn't mean to leave it disconnected, but if you can get some of the swaybar disconnects, those are great, i have them, i cannot run without my swaybar, the truck sways waaaaay too much for comfort IMO. but i guess thats something you will just have to find out about your truck.

    They are strong, get them. Get greasable frame bushings too. After the first few uses they are real easy to disconnect/reconnect /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
