    reason I've heard, no way to lock them so if you are on a sidehill they could unload. That could cause a rollover. www.echobit.com they have scissor shackles that don't rotate but do sag down for more droop and can be locked. No knowledge of anyone using those though.

    Senevador on this site runs the first prototype with 6" rear lift springs for a total of 12" of lift. There are many others with the kit that will be surfacing soon so keep an eye out! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    After looking at a set of Revolver's that came in on a Heep there's no way I spend money on them wimpy things. They've got all kinds of failure modes built right in. No Thanks.
