    Did a search but theres just too many threads with 52/56 etc.

    I know at least a couple of folks on here are/were running the TC 2" arched 52's up front. I'm curious how you like the flex/ride etc. Also interested to know if it gave you 6", or did it end up being more etc. Any input is welcomed. :thumb:

    Also always interested to hear from anyone running stock 52/56's on a DD. I'd like to get an idea on road stablility etc. I need to figure out once and for all what I'm going to do on my suspension. Thanks fellers. :D

    Mmmm. I'm just finishing mine up, and at least in my case there is rather more body sway. It's fine for me as mine is NOT a DD ... but I'd be throwing more money at shocks and spending more time fine-tuning them if it was.

    Arched (lifted) springs might be better for that, stiffer. I'm looking forward to flexing mine, but she certainly is wiggly :eek:

    im running 2" lift 52's up front i got them so i could have more up travel.i have stock 56's in the back so they will droop out a little more than the lift ones ..... i have a theory that good up travel and decent droop is great for the front to suck up obsticles and the back have decent uptravel with good droop so the rear will drop into the obstacles .. not sure if its gonna be the best setup for my application but i think its the way to go ... i just gotta test it on some trails once the 500 and 60 goes in
