    I just got done with a echobit flip and man does it handle better :eek1: . Hitting a bump used to jar my teeth loos now it rides like my 97 1/2 ton :D I also swapped in 52" springs and new poly bushings. Wished I would have done this a year ago instead of procrastinating :rolleyes: Now during the install I noticed my droop is limited by the shock what is everyone doing to avoid this?
