4.5" lift and 33's Flex shots

got bored today after doing some PITA work on my TPS sensor. 5 min. job turned into a 4 hour job after a bolt broke that no shops had.

but anyways here are the shots. and also is it common to have more flex backwards than forwards?










the only rub

I think the more backwards flex comes when the front is doing more drooping with the force of the flex on the rear. I'm going to have to try it never have but you see in pics all the time how far the front tires will droop and flex when its backed up to a hill or ramp.

P.s. I like the Kumho sticker with the Baja Claws LOL.

im assuming you mean the upper control arms, cause the bottoms are the Bent ( for max clearance on mounts) Rustys arms.

HUh, no. I mean you need some adjustable arms atleast lower one, or perhaps some drop brackets. High Clearence arms don't mean crap if you are still runing stock length at a 4.5" lift height. Your geomentry is out of balence, being why you do not get all that great of flex in which you could be getting better.

there not stock length. there longer and are the ones for the kit. but either way im getting a front Rustys 6.5 W/ adjustable arms sometime in not too long hopefully. but if the arms were any longer i would have some trouble seeing how they allready rub the front of my fender.

Which is why you should get some long arms or drop brackets. Which what gives you a better approach angle for your tires when hitting bumps and climbing rocks, thus a smoother ride as well. It allows you axle to go up and down, as if up over bumps and rocks, without putting access stress on your mounts. Which right now their going more straight toward an object thus having more of a right at the object impact, instead of a smooth ride over a object.
