I've been running MC's front uppers for a while now with now problems (DF joint at frame end, Clevite on axle end.) Notice the nastiness of the lowers and clean and shiny on the uppers!

I had to hit him up a second time, I was just gonna forget about it until Lou told me the amount. It's worth the call.

That's good info. I forgot that you really have no choice right now but to run that on the front uppers using the stock axle mounts. Thanks Bob.

Got my other new toy today.... gotta say it's a pretty sexy contraption. I can't say installing the bushings in the frame is much fun though. Mine were a rather tight fit. I swung by my buddies on the test drive and forked it out, I wasn't worried about the flex, it's got plenty, but I was worried that the bolt for the sway bar link was going to be all over my MC inner fender. I was wrong though, it just barely clears. That's cool. Street driving impressions were good, little more body roll to be expected but not a big deal. It's going to feel weird not having to disconnect and reconnect, I'm so used to doing it.

Use the second hole in the arm, will allow full flex and give a lil more stability

No way! I want MAX MEGA flex bro. I'm gonna try it like this and play with it from here. I think this will be just fine though. When you getting yours???

Dude....

You could set the arms to the shortest effective length and still use all your shock travel. I run a stiffer bar than you and have the links set to the middle hole on the arms, along with a stiffer rear bar with relatively short arms.....I have no issue using all of my shock travel and it handles like a champ on the road.

As for the frame inserts, do them frequently and you'll get quick with them. A little sanding to smooth out the starting edges makes it much easier.....add a rectangular block of wood and a good hammer and you can have them set in a couple minutes.

I DD mine on the last hole, not a big deal as far as body roll goes. I drove it for a little bit w/o a sway bar so maybe anything was better than none.

If you can't stand behind our troops feel free to stand in front of them!

Conner is spot on with this one. I run mine exactly as he said with no loss in articulation. Your going to love the antirock

Dude..........

Haha give me a second to play with it! I might like it a little loose, maybe a little tighter. I'm going wheeling Sunday and plan to try a few settings. As far as the inserts, I don't think 6 years of frame painting helped. After I sanded they went in pretty easy, but put up more fight than I anticipated. No biggie.

I lost count at how many I am following, lol! Just to help you out, I don't have most things, including the AR, so you can save yourself some time looking at my build.
