    I searched and no one has mentioned this before so here goes.

    On the RL 1.5" ram like what Jesse (BlazenOffroad) sells are hte heim ends rotatable? Basically can I mount the ram so that the lines are verticle and rotate the heim ends so that the mounting bolt could be verticle or horizontal or anywhere in-between.

    Also I remember someone posting up about not being happy about the lines supplied in the RL kit? It was just the length of the lines that sucked right? Jesse's newest posts states that it comes with 48" lines.

    Heim ends swivel so yes you can mount the ram with the hole in the heims both vertical or horizontal.

    yes, thats why heim joints are favorable, many mounting options. And yes 4' lines.

    Hopefully soon I can get it. I am kinda torn between buying rear 56's so it will flex more than 5 inches, or doing the HYD Assist...:thinking:

    What's the point of flexing if you can't steer? :)

    Well as it is now I can steer. It is not too bad even with the Detroit up front.
    The rear flex is another matter. No matter what I do it will not flex.

    Plus springs are cheaper if I get them used.
