It does have a lot to do with what you're wheeling on and while i do some off camber stuff it's rare and i end up in places i need frame height more than anything.

Dont get me wrong im not shooting for 34" of frame height i wanted 30" but the way it's looking unless i want to cut up stuff alot im going to end up close to 34" which doesnt bug me a ton just means ill have to be more carefull when i get to off camber stuff and or just use my winchs to take the height out of the truck. ill have front and rear mount winches so i can just suck the truck down and have a 90" droop suspention.

That panhard looks ridiculously short.

How far does the axle swing over at full droop?

Fuck yeah, pirate4x4 style!



Probably doesn't matter much anyway (if at all) since you're going full hydro. How's it looking/clearing flexed the other way?

well I think it's tall as fuck but i'm ok with that. I've had tall trucks in the past just have to be really careful in the rocks. that stuffed tire bent that part of the fender that has the two mounting holes in about 3/4 of an inch befor the shock bottomed out. and the other side will that's full droop. axle stays center under the truck fairly well while flexing and when the truck unloades the axle moves over about 5-6 inchs (that is a guess) thing is ill have a limit strap in the middle of the axle so it cant do that.

guess my truck isn't as fat as I thought it was. With a 18" long 200# spring and a 16" long 150# spring at 6" of ride height. Problem is ill have about 3" of distance between the spring and spring seat at full droop. So guess im going triple rate. called a few places yesterday to get a tender coil and triple rate spring guide and after all day of dicking around on the phone I jumped on amazon where I found Genesis spring guides and hyperco 6" long tender coils, where as everyone else only had 4" tender coils.

Haha it does look tall which is why I was asking. I'm right around 26" on 37's aired up to 25 lbs. The front isn't even close to clearing so I'm stuck and deciding to cut a ton or throw another leaf in and cut a little. I'm just worried about getting too tall.

Adding a leaf won't change where it rubs when it is flexed. Cut the shit out of it, or bumpstop it to reduce the trimming. I vote cut the shit out of it
