I got the 3" Sway away lift before running Rubithon last year and got all the goodies to go with it, ie rear springs shocks... I was under my rig doing some inspection before a family run this weekend and see that my pass side is bent and driver is blown (leaking fluid). Since we are planning to leave tomorrow I don't have much time (or money) set aside to go shopping. Does anyone know if I can put my stockers back on for a mild family trip? I assume I can, but would like some input :grinpimp:

You will propbably loose about 2" of top out travel if you do any twisters or rock jumping, but that only means the axle won't drop as far. You may bottom out body-to-axle on a rough road, but I don't think you will be looking at any damage to speak of if you truly keep it a "milk run" trip. :D
