    was out gettin gas and thought id snap some shot of some poser flex behind the giant. the rear wasnt flexed out, and the front didnt even move (shackle angle up front is terrible in addition to them being 8" springs). the 56's up front will fix that anyways so its no big deal now. anyways here are the pics, what do you think?

    cool. It should be able to flex way more than that though.

    i know, i didnt go all the way cuz i was scared to hurt my new tires with only 1500miles on them. i still need to trip the rear some more, havent even bothered trimming the front much at all.

    from the looks of the pictures i dont think he really can. his exhaust looks like its touching his front driveshaft. anymore droop would really mess that exhaust up.
    very clean truck though

    Well since everyone is showing pictures of their flex, I guess I'll do the same.

    woo hoo! I want in on the poser flex action! I bet you will flex a lot better when you swap your front springs- it looks like the back is doing all the work.

    they hydro assist is workin great! i love it.

    yea my rear is doing everything, my front shackle angle could not be worse. as for the exhuast, im swappin in a 6.2 and goind with the stock true dual exhuast, so that will no longer be an issue. also that is a stock front shaft with 9" lift and pushed out 1.5".....im waiting to do the new driveshaft til the springs are in so i can determine what i need.

    i know it can flex alot more, even with the current front as is, but i was by myself and without someone else tellin me to keep goin it and it felt like it was gona go over haha. i wish i had brought the camera last time, it was actually maxed out, but it cut up the tires some.
