Rocky Road 2.25 installed

So i installed my 2.25 last night. took about 8 hours in a friends garage. here are some cell phone pics but better ones are to come. i drove it home about 20 miles and i must say that i do not like the RR rear shocks. it feels like they're not even there, very bouncy.

It was about 2 1/2 weeks. And as everyone has said the instructions leave much to be figured out by yourself. Don't waste your money on the shocks from RR, they're just hydrolic not gas.

Nice!

Looks good! I have the RRO also, not bad for the money. I Need new front struts now. Does anybody have any suggestions? I have the OME for the extra 2" in travel but one of them just kinda fell apart.
