Thanks man. She rides like a new vehicle! The rear geometry is so much better and makes for more predictable turns. It's much more responsive, with the new shocks.
Distance from joint to joint on the A-arm?

I aske because i see a set of four for sale and am wondering if i could use those if i were to get tbe mounting bracket seperately.

I was way off camber when the back end started to slide and then hit a ridge and came to an abrupt stop. Needless to say, the subs kept going and slid off the spare into the window! Hahaha, that'll teach me!

Limiting straps worked absolutely flawlessly! Now it's time for a front locker and then call it quits so I can buy a REAL rig, haha!
