    Well, the pics aren't flexy....and neither is my Burb! /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    I stacked up a few hardcore stumps in my driveway to test the flex of my Burb. I already knew my front shock are too short and would limit my flex, but said why not. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    As you can see, the pass. front shock is pulling that corner of the Burb down, causing the rear suspension to flex even more.

    Once I get longer brake lines and longer shocks, I may need to trim a bit more off the fenders. /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif

    Time to get the longer lines and install the shocks, that should help the front flex alot. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Looks like that rear fender doesn't need any trimming /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    Yep, rust sucks. It is hard to believe that it was rust free up until 1987 when I moved from NV to IA. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    uh....yea.....it is "stretched" out a bit! /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif
    I did that trying to pull a pretty big lilac bush stump out of the ground. I had to turn the truck around and attach the chain to the hitch. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif
    A couple of good jerks and it was out. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
