I think its an issue with the forum. Its been double posting replies for me.

As for the flex, what's wrong with it?

I guess I'm just self conscious of my 80, lol. I thought I should've had more flex.

This is mine with the front sway disconnected and the "hitch pin" mod. It's about all you can get unless you start changing the factory links. The hitch pin mod involves removing the front bolt from ONE of the radius arm brackets where it connects to the axle. Do a search here for hitch pin and you'll find more info

Here's a zoomed in shot. You'll notice how the radius arm on the driver's side was disconnected and it allows the axle to move more freely. You'll also notice how this mod messed up the brackets - they flared out. Had to pound them back in place with a hammer

Great pic illustrating that. Question though, does it limit flex on the other side? So for instance, you're stuffing the drivers side tire instead of passenger? And if not, why?

It would probably end up breaking the back bracket off too, and thanks for the info.
