Orbit Eyes (or similar)

Hi everyone,

So I've got an Alcan 8 pack on the rear of my rig. The springs flex well, but I am looking for a little more extension out of them. It looks like the longitudinal binding in the spring is preventing my rear suspension from hitting full extension.

So... I'm thinking about replacing my main leaf with one that includes an Orbit Eye shackle in the rear. My question is: Does anyone on here run Orbit Eyes or something similar? Does anyone have any experiences that they can share? Any information you have would be helpful in my decision.

Thanks,

Lumpskie

My buddy runs em on a trail only Jeep based rig. They improved the droop and increased his body roll. He did not reccomend them to me for street use. Then again some people run no sway bar on the street.

^Thanks for the input. I've heard about the increase in body roll. But I heard that it is not too dramatic of you only put an eye on one end of the spring. It makes me wonder what it would be like if I go with the orbit eyes and put my sway bar back on.
