Where do you guys get long travel shocks? I have thought about doing 2" spacer and shackle, long travel shocks, adjustable trac bar, along with bump stop and trimming for 33's. But where do you get the shocks?

I asked him about exhibit d since I like that also. He said it is something he made and is welded to his cross member. I am sure he made the one in exhibit c also.

I've heard of some people using bicycle inner tube between the leaf springs as anti-friction pads... Has anyone one here done this? I am putting together a mild bastard pack with anti-friction spray paint. I was wondering if just the paint will be enough for long term use.

they sell liners for this purpose - it would not use bicycle inner tubes. The liners are polyurethane/nylon/teflon
