Getting to Erics house and jacking up
Started with the rears :tup:



Old setup which was the blue springs compared to the new ones





Getting down to Business we thought that the new Sleeve was gonna be to tall so we cut it down bout 5 threads



The ground control spacers was to thick for the sleeve to fit over so we trimmed them down



Getting spring and spacer and strut all cleaned up and greasy :)



Putting L screws into the sleeves



After its all said and dunn put thew spring on and top hat on and she is ready to go



And there she goes



After the rears where done we took a break and Got started on the Fronts

Basically same process as the rears and we ended up with this :hs:



when we put them on and lowered it all the way to the perch i still had a finger gap so u guys no what that means CUT PERCHES!!!!! :tup:



after both of them where finished ended up with this



and in she goes



little pic of are mess :D

cause of the spring rate its higher then GC's and same exact height as Gc's and the travel is amazing being this low
You could have just gotten custom GCs, swift springs, or hypercoils. You just order the height and diameter.

And I don't want to be a buzzkill, but you did this change all with OEM shocks? :nono:

rob, i gave him those, so there were free, and oem shocks work just fine for dailying, oems are shorter and work just as good, he bought some aftermarket kybs, and they were hella tall and stiff and perches were way high, they were fail
