Giant Motorsports rear leaf

Has any seen or used this kit?

This looks like a killer rear LT set up. I cant seem to find any reviews on it.

MJP2 has (or had at one point) that rear leaf pack. PM him or read through his build thread.

It's extremely stout but I'm having some minor rubbing issues with the kit. Granted, that only happened in a racing situation so your mileage may vary.

I'm going to try swapping out the bushings for ones made from stiffer material and see how that works. I considered swapping to the DMZ solution but the time/effort/cost makes it impractical for me at the moment.

They didn't offer the bolt-on option when I purchased the kit. That would have made the installation a whole lot easier.

If you haven't made up your mind about a rear yet, consider Defined Engineering's solution as well as the DMZ kit. Mike from Defined is an active member here on TW and will answer any questions you have.
