    Welcome Newbie! :flipoff2: Dude, you need to click RIGHT HERE or up at the top of the page where it says Technical Links and then read every single one listed under Spring Over Axle. Then come back here and click up near the top where it says [​IMG] and put in "SOA", then again and use "spring over". Read all that, then come back here and post any remaining questions. You'll feel alot better.

    Ferg is absolutely right. Read, read, read. As far as the SOA is concerned you won't be sorry. The flex is awesome. 8)

    I just wanted to comment saying that those examples give you only a few ways of doing a SOA and there is more ways then those represented there.

    do a search just here in the forum itself.

    I just finished mine.
