    Ive been looking at the ORD website and lusting after various products!! /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif 4:1 transfer case(s), ooohhhh... If Id have won that lottery, you'd be a very busy man!!

    One thing I am considering, is the shackle flip kit. Would this kit, along with a 4" spring, offer many advantages, over an 8" spring??

    Great forum, looks like you guys have KICK BUTT customer service!!

    I would think it would ride much better than an 8" spring.

    You'll get a lot better flexability from a 4" spring than an 8" spring, so it'll articulate and ride better. That's it, not much else to it!
    You'll also get less roll steer with the flatter spring.
