    I have an 85, 1/2t 'burban I use mostly for daily driving and towing, it's mostly stock. I use it offroad, but only about 10% of the time. My ? is how can I get better flexion for off-camber/sidehill & drop-offs? I have 35" BFG's, w/ 6" Superlift, r blocks. I'm getting ready to order & install the ORD r. shackle flip kit. I just installed new skyjacker shocks.This all started this April while in CA, driving some gnarly ass jeep? roads, hunting for some great climbing/skiing. My bro was seriously white knuckled a few times. I know a rollcage will help but I'd rather have the suspension and not use the cage. This truck is my product test rig. I'm looking to buy a blazer this winter and build it up, not as badass as ORD's but.... Thanks, Eric

    Do the flip kit, swaybar disconnects, then look to the urethane bushings, preferably greasable. That's about as good as you can do with what you have. And really, that should give you a pretty stable predictable suspension when you're workin' it offroad.
    gotta run, but that's should get you started.
