Typically i never start off running rpm's that...

    SAS Spring Selection Info Wanted

    these springs came off a postal vehicle that had a rusted out shackle and when the new shackles came in for it they also came with new springs and the works. so these arent squated out at all. might see a little less height out of more used one's. it will clear 37's as you see it in those pics...

    SAS Spring Selection Info Wanted

    waggy's seem to be the spring of choice. however we used explorer rear leafs in the front and rear of a broncoll and have had pretty good results. it will flex, doesnt sway all over the road (like mine) and doesnt require a kidney belt to drive either. think ride quality in that rig are about as...

    wheel/spindle bearing grease adapter

    So in my journey of allways trying to further waterproof my rig I came across this nifty tool for yota's. I dont see why somthing couldnt be easily fabricated to grease the spindle bearings on our axles (35/44/10 bolt whatever). Also could make somthing that threaded on in the same fashion to...
