Question Defined Engineering suspension parts.

I just heard about this company today.

Does anybody have experience with them or their products?

I'm thinking about purchasing their extended leaf shackles to lower my rear another half an inch.

Mike (owner) is a cool dude.

I helped put his kit on my friends truck.

Those shackles are a lot better then stock because they actually move up an down unlike the stock ones because the center pin is molded to the rubber bushing on the stock ones. Also you can grease his shackles because they have a zerk on them

Yea, I really liked the zerk fittings aspect. I just have never heard of them.

Wanted to make sure I wasn't about to purchase cheapo steel with half-assed welds.

Yup Mike at Defined Engineering makes great stuff. They just need to get their name out there so more people can really see what the quality of the work.

He has given me lots of good advice on my build and is he is heavily involved in race support and prep so he knows his stuff.
