    Depends on how much front travel you have. I run 4" springs on mine with no binding or slipout. My front shocks are currently limiting my suspesion from max travel though. I wheeled it hard for a few years with zero issues.

    If you have a binding problem then you can always grind out the CV stops to get more flex. This is not optimum if you use 4x4 on the street cause it will cause vibs but it works.
