Very nice! Have you figured out where you want to but the bumps yet? Inside the coil?

what tire pressure do you run in the desert/ when you do go fast stuff?

the whole go-fast scene is finally starting to pick up on the east coast, gonna be outboarding some edelbrock resi's in and doing some nice progressive bumpstops this spring, i cant wait to go fast!

awesome man, i keep it between 15 and 25psi pending on location. so far so good on keeping my rims without bending them. bandit keep me posted on how your build goes. especially if you have questions. my biggest recomendation is getting as much uptravel as possible when setting up your rig. I cycled the rear with the 8.8 a couple weeks ago and have 12inches of travel with my short arms. now i just gotta utilize as much as that as i can when i setup the shocks.

have had a whirlwind of the last few weeks, found some time today to start the conversion to 2inch shafts on the bilsteins. here is a basic break down of how to rebuild or convert bumps form 4inch to 2inch

first you gotta take the pressure out of the shock you dont want 200psi to go flyin. then you gotta pop the cap off the wiper seal. did this with a small sharp cold chisel and some love taps with a dead blow.


for those who notice the rust, its inherited with the metal bump can that it sits in. ill clean it all up before i put it in the can but the rust will be right back in a few months. also gonna ask joel for new bilstein steekers on the cap.

then rotate the shock so you can get too the wiper seal o ring. its a ***** and if you have a pick set it makes it much easier. the tape is there just to hold the wiper cap up.


I dont have a pic but to get the assembly out of the shock you simply pull it out of the body. make sure the shock body is on the bottom or you will dump the shock oil out. it literally all slides out as a unit and nothing will fall off.

take the bottom nut off the assembly and carfully remove the washer spring and everything off the old shaft.

heres a side by side. the old shaft is the bigger one and the new one has everything assembled on it. that bottom nut needs to go on with 250inch lbs and some red loctite is recomended.




i dont have it all back in the shock body yet, had my hangover kick in and i was done. lol as soon as i grab some shock oil ill get it all together and finish the write up on it.

cool man, weve had some good results with the RE coils. the deavers will be a very nice spring too. a couple of the jeepspeed guys say to use the coil (good quality) to set ride height and let the shocks do the rest.

heres an XJ ive been helping with.
