    This is built not bought so I am keeping the specs to myself. All I will say is that before I ran off the shelf 6" superlift springs that I did some Vodoo to that flexed almost as much.

    BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.............is this sport not about cooperation? Most of us live across the country....afraid of us showing up your rig from here or what? If you were running three tenths faster than anyone in a drag bracket I can see, but.......oh hell, nevermind.

    It has nothing to do with that I just hate how everyone wants the plans on how to build one. They are 52's but that is all I am going to say. I can post some pics of the taper but I don't have any right now.

    Even if you did share your innovations on your set up, it's still going to be a one-of-a-kind rig which looks insane..

    Well after some thinking and a little arm twisting I decided to share



    They are 4" BDS 52's up front. I removed the overload and run bumpstops I only gained around 1-2" of lift since they are so SOFT. I actually have a zero rate in there to get the ride height that I wanted. I could have just left the overload in and flipped it but by the time I did that the overloads had a new home. I have 4" BDS 56's in the rear with a ORD 2 1/2" shackle flip.
    Hope that helps :D
