It was fun. To bad Derek flaked out. He had his mommy call to tell us he was sick.

Hope you feel better buddy.

Is it just me, but the very first photo looks like the spring is compressed even though the jeep didn't look like it was flexing?

Yeah...I don't know!! That's Procomp for ya!! I just installed it, I don't make it:laughing2::laughing2: I'm a TeraFlex guy! That's what I run....well most of my suspension parts!! Look at the swaybar drop down brackets!! WTF!! Couldn't just include swaybar links with the kit?!

Looks good. Nice use of the fork lift :P

I have never been a fan of Pro Comps Jeep stuff. Their stuff for trucks and such is fine. But I too like Tera Flex :)

Jks track bar front n rear links, sway bar discos...might do brake lines

Still not bad for $250 bucks ! Looks good rides good off road should be really nice... I'm stoked and lifetime warranty on all of it.

It appears, that they provided springs that are too long for the lift that was installed, OR the shocks that go with that lift/springs, are not long enough, or need to be replaced, so you have more spring travel.

Just my $0.02.

No that is how they are. I have the same lift. They look as if they smashed, but extend just fine. They have a nice ride to them as well.

I just talked to hogg on the phone and he needs some help. Luckily I gotta good woman to take care of me. I'll be back to work on Tuesday hopefully. Rick if you wanna go over hogg's house with a couple chicks in nurse outfits I'm sure he'd be much obliged.

No to both questions, I had to postpone two calls while working on Richard's rig. I wasn't even able to try to install RRauzer's sliders....but Jason looked at them and said it wasn't possible!! The mounts were just off by to much!

Talked to Procomp....so there stupid sway bar relocation brilliance setup is the cause of the tention on the spring....remedy is to add 3inch front links
Anbody got any:D the good news is it doesnt effect the ride at all but offroad articulation is limited by there retarded sway bar setup...
