    The whole set ran $4500.00 new. The rears measure 48" eye to eye at rest and are much softer than you'd expect. Now whats Ed to do with them??? I'm thinking and insane crossbow!

    $4500 for some springs? Someone is good at grabbing their ankles.

    Woah!


    That is so weird looking, I'd think it was a photochop and not a real set of leafs!!!!


    $4500 is still a lot of money though......do you realize how many sets of lift blocks you could buy for that price? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Do YOU realize how many 3 links made with a chain and a pipe you could mock up for that price?

    Ooooooh that hurts! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    But for your information, I'm using .125" 1" HREW tubing....not pipe.

    If I don't figure out a solution in the near future, I'll run out of HREW and be stuck having to use 1" DOM..... Talk about a WASTE of money! /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    Luckily, ED found a deal on them and didn't have to pay full price. When he checked with National, theres a waiting list to get a full set like this, a waiting list - now thats scary!

    You're using expensive tubing just to mock it up and snap those pictures?

    I figured you'd get a kick out of that one. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    How muck are coilover shocks and such? For that price, I'd think you could get a nice coil/linked setup.

    A nice set of coil overs would run you 1500 each, and thats not including the link setup. But, you'd get a nice set of shocks with it! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Should have had them the other way. That way we could do the Sesame Street Ref. "Today's Post Is brought to you by the Letter U" /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Bilstein and Fox are, the Kings seem to pit on the shafts really early in their lifespan where as the previous two dont.

    How about the letter n !
