I've been reading around on this awesome forum, and what I'm interested in is extended travel shocks for the rear end. I don't need more than 2" of lift. What I need is wheel travel. It's the rear I want to upgrade with an AAL added to my stock 4-leaf pack (5th leaf - 1.5").
From what I've seen, for rear shocks the Bilstein 5160's extended travel at 27" is the best on the market. Anybody know how OME shocks compare for extended travel? ICON
's from what I've seen have 24" extended length. King shocks have some extended travel like 28", but the compressed length would require bump stops.
Also, what about extended rear shackles for the 2nd Gen? Does that get you some more wheel travel? And do you need extended travel shocks? OZ posted something about these dropshackles http://www.definedengineering.com/products.html
Anybody use them?
I'm not worried too much about the front end, there's a ton of options for 2" of lift that doesn't require new UCA's or a diff drop, or CV problems, or alignment problems. It's the rear end I'm still trying to sort out all the options.
