That's interesting, I'm trying to find some more throw for flex, but I don't want to gain ride height either. I'm afraid that if I put the ranger shackles in the top holes of my brackets, it will rub the bottom of the bracket too much. I'll probably try a couple different shackles before it's over with

That's what I've done. Another thing to consider is how much weight you'll have it the back.

While working on my bump stops today, I found where my slight wobble is coming from. Lower ball joint in the drivers side is done. What's everybody's opinions on replacements?

Incredible isnt it? I was skeptical about the difference until I upgraded, definitely a mod worth some praise. Theres a lot of benefit per dollar there.

It's not all that expensive either! I saw weeder's before but it's hard to judge until you're sitting begin the wheel. Worth every penny

How is it you dont have any flex pics with the relo brackets installed?

I believe Im gonna put my order in for some this afternoon. So sick of a vertical shackle angle.

I actually have one flex pic but it doesn't show much. Should be wheeling this weekend so I'll try and get some proper pictures. Rear shocks are limiting down travel now
