Road test update
Well - in the quest to find a way to create a smoother riding Jeep - one that doesn't shake every filling loose in your mouth, I have removed my shocks.
Currently - no sway-bars, no track-bars, no shocks - only a set of springs between the frame and axle.
The ride is fairly smooth - but there is a bit of residual shake when hitting large bumps at highway speeds. At times it feels like the Jeep is going to go out of control, but hasn't in the last 3 days.
While the shocks were off - a quick RTI test showed a score of 843 - but the limiting factor was not a raised tire, but my bushwacker flares being crunched by my mini-tires (35" MT's). While my Jeep was all twisted out, a few measurements were taken for new shocks.
The idea of a set of Rancho 9000 shocks is going through my head - but with a best price of $129 per shock, it might be out of my league for a few more months. Considering a set of $20 shocks to sit between my frame and axle for the short-term.
