    I don't know about right now, I've stiffened up the bottom coil up front by a little and ran the coil spacer stop down so it has less compression travel up front than it did. Really the limiting factor in flex right now is the 42's rubbing the inside of the rear fenders. It's nice and flat, but it still hits really hard at full stuff.
    I think I might have gone as much as 900 on the 30 degree if the rear was free to move, but the 863 or whatever was good enough for me. I'm not into big flex for the sake of it, it's kind of a by-product of a lot of other stuff.
