The air shocks handle the job of both the spring and the shock. Why would he have to run springs if it already handles that job? It;d be like have 2 coils and 2 leaves on each side.

^^-- I'm with this guy. My buddy is running them on the rear of his Sami Buggy, has been for the last year. They flex awesome, and work great. The only thing you have to avoid is they can unload on you and send you right over. The best way to avoid this is to run a winch to suck the rear (or front) down on extreme angles.

okay you guys obviously must have been able to read this guys mind when he posted up before he showed the pic we all thought that before he posted the pic that he was talkin about these....

those wouldnt be worth two farts in a tin can off road but the ones that he has finally told us that he was gonna use would be fine

before you start running off at the mouth take a look at some of the builds on here and tell me if they are corner store runners, this is a great forum and there are cherokee's here on this forum that im sure would put yours to shame, mine no but take a look at cos, bones, freaks, and ktms and tell me they are made for just the corner store,

Yall ASSume he was talking bout air HELPER springs not air shocks...

I make a little joke about it and now yall assume I was "running my mouth" take a joke big guy!

If I felt like filln out my sig it would read: 1990 XJ- tons/350tbi/700r4/35" Boggers


Now about the question... Than things gunna be BA! From the pics I have seen the 18s fit but allow more droop than the u joint can handle. Everything must be really flexy, driveshaft, track bar, long arm joints...
