    How they look? I know my rear could be more, but it works really really well.

    you already are aware of your rear angle, front looks pretty good. so you got 52's in front? what in the rear? 56's? any flex pics?

    Nope, i did the relocation for better flex and ride. It rides so much better and the tires moves alot more up and down.

    haha, funny guy! Is just that my TC ez rides flex real nice... but I bet I can flex them more if I were to relocate the shacke for a better angle... I've thought about the 52" spring swap... but eh....I may just leave it alone...why fix it if aint broke???... unless if I'm a Jeremy lol.....

    ok smart guy, well see now. Im sure a better angle would make a whole hell of alot better flex, especially for droop. Atleast you can put that crossover to good use.

    Id be lucky by next summer, I guess too many projects with too many things I want to do. Oh well it will get there when it does, I should have just left it with 33's and 1/2 tons way back when, I actually used to be able to go out then. Ill just continue riding my dirt bike, shhh...dont tell anyone but I think I like that a little better.
