If we were to do it, it would be to Annabelle's LJ...but that's not really a feasible conversion, considering that it's driven daily. We'd have to pull it off the road for way too long.

And I'm not disagreeing with you; there's a reason that the hard deck's upper skirt was shaped as it was. But, it would be a way-down-the-road thing no matter which rig might see it.

Now I can piss everyone off by stating that I'm reading lots of articles on ORI's.

Have done some reading myself and the thought of how clean and simple it could be is overwhelming!

This is the route I am going . It is a clean and fairly simple install . I will most likely make my own mounts , but I will move the perches just like gst95dsm did in the picture above .

This should take you to the correct page where he installed everything .

Long time reader, first time poster. I have been looking into ORI's myself. Some people say they work great for a DD and others say they are not a great option for a DD. Have you found more sway one way or the other in your research?

I've actually found another axis entirely; they're either worth the trouble it takes to install them and run them, or they're not worth the trouble it takes to install them and run them. ORI seems to think that they are a perfectly appropriate option for a daily driven rig and several reviews I've read have said the same thing...and others look at them as an option only for trail/competition vehicles. I was actually investigating them as a suspension option for another project entirely; I've thought about coilovers for Greta but not seriously considered the changeover.

Also, thanks for reading and posting!
