B, I have not thought about different shocks, although before I do some serious wheeling, I have to address the bump stops. By different shocks did you mean something like the adjustable rancho RS9000 shocks? Sean
I think Mr. B, means you need a longer shock stroke length. Currently, depending on how much droop you want, the OME shocks are the limiting factor of articulation. Getting some longer shocks and new lowered / longer bumpstomps will allow some awesome droop with those springs & new arms.
How was the gas mileage in that uber-lifted cruiser?
