    remember the old echobit vid of when the top was on and sway bar connected he could lift the front tire like a foot off the ground on a hard turn under accel? A frined almost rolled his truck while spinning a doughnut he hit the brakes and the back inside tire came up a couple feet. After he calmed down we did it for the fun of it for a few times but I can't find the pics on here.

    My buddies old jeep did that after he welded the rear up. He could keep it off the ground going straight if he kept enough pedal.

    I didnt lift any tires off the ground but after I welded my rear I took my truck to a competition in Fort Smith. most of the area is open fields of sand. I could spin around in circles pivoting on the front driverside tire. that tire didnt move but the rest of the truck spun around in circles till I got dizzy.:D

    does it just preload the rear passenger side down until it hits the bump stops?

    well its unloading the one side due to the tourque and lack of a loacating or track bar.


    being that I am driving while I do it I cant say for sure:D
