If youre going to run them, I know a guy who only runs them in the rear and they seem to work pretty well. I don't know how they are on the road, but you can learn to drive just about anything.
Something to keep in mind: If you are going to add revolvers, in order to take advantage of them, you should also probably increase you shock length and brake lines too.
A friend of mine runs them on his jeep. He used to love them till he had make a panic stop and turn, when the revolver shackles unloaded on him and he went wheeling on 2 wheels and almost rolled it, tell after it happend i was sick to my stomach
. I was in the jeep with him and let me tell you something i was thinking on getting them, but after that I changed my mind.. One thing you will here is that you have to change your driving habits with them, but my opinion i dont care how much of a professonial you are, when it comes to a panic stop and turn even the best drivers lose control.. Now if you have just a trail rig and it will never see regular pavement pounding then they are great.. Now if Tera flex can come up with a way to lock them when you are on the street or pushing your rig down a steep hill so they dont unload at the wrong time then i would most definately get them for my jeep.. But this is just my opinion...
I was talking to Leftlane and he said a guy had a setup like that and what the guy did is get one of those cheap winches that you can buy for like 100-150 dollars and he mounted it in the back of the jeep and cut a hole in the floor and hooked up the winch to the rear axle so he can control the unloading properties, and he says it works good. This sound like a way to go, but i will have to see and experiment with the idea..
