Springfield isn't bad. You just need to get all the Chicago people to go home. We could always give Chicago back to the cheeseheads

California is as bad a shape or worse than Illinois. Indiana is in good shape but they wouldn't want it.

I may be steeping on toes but without chicago this state would be predominantly republican. chicago is a democratic powerhouse which runs the state. Im a hick from the sticks i like my freedom(thank you those who have served) I like my guns and with illinois already having the most strict gun laws we have hiher numbers of gun violence. I just opened up a can of worms i know.

So I'm not rubbing at all with the spacers, which is amazing. It was so painful to hear the rubbing when turning. There's a definite increase in ride quality with the long arms, however I think I need better shocks. I have nice arms and sliders, I think I should have decent quality shocks. Also, need to get stainless brake lines for the front, but that can wait until I do my brake upgrade.

I'm loving the arms. Frank has a quality product. I just had a little bad luck when ordering them, one of his suppliers didn't tell him they were out of some stuff, but I wasn't in a rush to get them on anyway. Weather just recently started getting nicer. And yeah, the axles went in the day after. They too are really nice. I really wanted stronger axles shafts since I've broken both sides before, and last time I was out I broke the yoke/u joint while pulling into the Cliffs lot after wheeling in the AM.

Yeah, definitely! I couldn't pass them up. The sale is still going on I think.. I'm glad the guy was OK with waiting a week and a half until payday haha.

these things are good to know I really like the radius arm set up due to the simplicity. torn on the trusty radius or be different and go with a 3 or four link. maybe next tax return!
