    I was wondering who has done this and if it gained you any flex? I am planning on doing this along with an ORD shackle flip. And if you ever had any problems with it hitting rocks since it now is pointing downward rather than upwards.Thanks for any input.

    I did this, and gained some flex on the compressed side, but how much I do not know. I only get brush caught in there sometimes, never had any problems snagging it on anything else.

    I did that with my lift springs and it helped out alot. Never got stuck on a rock from them, but have hit them a few times.

    Thanks for the reply's everyone. That's what I was looking for, I'm not worried about hitting them with rocks ... just getting hung up on them or break something. I'll be running 38.5 sx's with 4 inch lift and 5.89's, just to give ya a better idea.
