First flex pics with the SAS.

These pics are for the people who haven't followed my SAS in the project logs. 'Finished' the truck last night and took it for an actual drive for the first time today. Its got a couple of kinks that need worked out but it doesnt drive to bad, its tolerable but I wouldnt take it over 45mph at this point.





Close to hitting the garage

Did the coil come off the mount? Is that what you mean? If thats what you're asking then no, the shock isn't long enough to let to coil come off the mount.

I figured that out after he clarified, but seriously, the line he quoted from my original post didn't answer that?

Good to hear man, when you gonna get started on the swap? 4x4 conversion was the best thing I've done by far.
