Yeah, I know what you mean. I've actually flexed it and the shackle barely hits the frame when the springs flatten out. Which is just about perfect, but that tells me bump stops are goin in at least up front. I'll never have to worry about the rears with those 63's and my fender well clearance as it is. Still might throw some in so I don't accidentally rip off a flare or two in the rear. lol

Straight line going well and it not tracking one way or the other is really good tho! I know some of the other guys had those problems when they did theres
Sway bar isn't going to happen. No need for one. Hell I took the one I had off my truck when I was on RCD. I'm not concerned about cornering. It's not a Lambo, it's a SAS'd ranger... So I'll drive it accordingly

Looks good and level.

I like the rear setup too. I've been thinking about moving my upper mounts to get more out of my shocks.

Thanks man, honestly couldn't have done this without your phone support and threads you've made. I really appreciate all you do for the ranger community. Thanks to everyone else that's helped me through it and given their constructive advise. A solid reason why this forum is so awesome and why I'll continue to support it and the people asking serious questions.

I know me too! Just gotta figure out my driveline situation... it\'s 34.5\" yoke to yoke with a 15 angle to the transfer case. If I recall right, I can use my expo shaft since it\'s cardan is over 20 (I think, more like 27 iirc) and buy the long slip and spline from driveshaft superstore\'s website then cut off the splined end on the expo shaft, weld on the new splined end on the shaft, and go have it balanced.
