    wanted forum post...

    yeah, you guessed it.. gonna try for some mad flex up front with some 52s. Oughta be a pretty wild setup... front axle moved way up, tie rod behind/above axle. Should be fun... but before I can get crazy I need a few springs... /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    I just took out a set of stock rear springs. I don't think they sag because I swapped in a new set and the ride height didn't change. Bring me a bottle of Ezra Brooks and they're yours. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Or just bring over the skid plate and you can have mine, but if you want you can stop at Shanes and pick up a bottle of Ezra and bring it with you.... /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I actually wouldnt mind having 2 sets... most agree that you get about 4" of lift from the 52" spring swap and I need 6... so a few leafs from a 2nd set may come in very handy. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Never heard of "Ezra Brooks", i assume its got some kinda alky drink... where do I get it... how much $? lol! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Dunno about you 'fumes... me thinks this was all an evil plot. You put off comin over here to get your free skid plate because you just knew that at some point I'd need something from you and have to come get it! Lazy bastage!! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    ok, guess i need to find that Ezra-what-ever-it-is and I'll be on my way. You guys gonna be home/around next weekend so I can swing by? I know where Shane is at... you're gonna have to PM me your addy though fumes...

    drove around and picked up the goodies today. Big thanks to Rob and Shane for hooking me up with some springs for my rear-springs-up-front swap. I plan on taking a bazillion pics of the whole process and in the end will do a write-up as well so other novices can follow along. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    anyway, thanks guys!
