    This is what I have left for bushings if either of you want them. $25 shipped. You’d just need to reuse two of the sleeves.

    Do those fit the spring and the shackle? Chux can have yours, he needs them more than I do but if you have a link/part number for the kit I’ll save that for when I’m ready to swap mine.

    I've got the same kit complete if you are interested. I'll do $35 shipped.

    But I really stopped in here to see what @Chux is using to air down with.

    I would guess ARB deflator like most people? For thirty something bucks it’s pretty tough to beat.

    In my opinion it’s the only way to do it. Auto deflators that I tried in the past were useless.

    I’m not ready to dive into that project yet so if someone else needs it go ahead and let them have it. When the time comes I’ll get in touch and see if you still have it:thumbsup:

    Also he has the arb deflator and I vote for the arb deflator aswell. I like it for the adjustability. Auto deflators are set it and forget it. With the arb I can set the tires to one pressure for difficult trails, another pressure for sand, or some of my longer trips that mix trails, fire roads and pavement I can still drop the pressure for traction and comfort but leave it a little higher to account for the higher speeds I’ll be traveling

    Yea I got the ARB deflator..

    It really comes down to reason for airing down. Obviously you’ll have majority of the offroad guys swear by the ARB deflator. But a lot of my friends use the auto deflators to air down for the beach, some drive with them on too. You just gotta figure out what’s good for you.

    Personally I air down in my driveway and drive to the beach and drive home and air up after. Airing down for trail is usually pretty chill. So I don’t really need convenience or speed. But still use the ARB deflator for beach and offroad.

    Yeah I just bought the Staun deflators. I'm nowhere near as close as you are to the beach and i missed a couple of blitzes LY while airing down. Looking for speed so I'll give these a shot this year.
