    I'm in the quest for perfection in suspension.

    And I don't know if my wallet can do it :(
    Cause from everything I'd need to do to get the suspension to perfection to my taste I need a lot done in the rear.
    LCA in the front would finish the front for my taste, without going full blown LT.

    But rear needs lots. In time I guess. Got the bumps, so all thats really left is relocate shock etc but holy shit do those ever get expensive.

    you can do it on the cheap without the expensive shock relocation. Just grab some generic shock loops, or the Ford f350 shock mounts and your good to go. Couple tabs on the axle, limit straps.....you have to weld it on though...

    You are missing softer ride on trails, even with my Fox 2.0 Level 1 I do feel a difference vs 5100s I had all over before.
    I'll be upgrading rear shocks with reservoirs down the road and a new leaf pack.

    and once I have the air bumps in it will be even better.
    was so happy with how it performed in Minden.

    I did on a winter run, but it's not as different compared to 5100s plus you have plenty of armour, bet the ride would been way better if you went with aluminum.

    other way around I need more weight in the rear.

    No matter how good the shocks are the springs are so stiff back there that its rough. Its been getting better though now that they are getting worked in. Should be even smoother with the air bumps since I do hit the normal bumps if going too fast. Partially because they are set too long. I hit bump way before I need to but don't feel like cutting them shorter.
    Rather just get the adjustable and better performing air bumps.

    try $980 a shock on the low end. :(

    Problem is other than the billies you have not many make a shock long enough for the droop of the dakars and only way to get it from the others is with a relocate and once you do that you're into the race series shocks of both Kings, Icon and Fox. So no matter what its expensive.

    you and your valving...lol oh well.

    if your planning on getting all the go fast shock stuff, you better save your self the time and stiffen up everything that needs to be stiffened up. Its a lot easier to do it before stuff breaks.

    so pre runner and racing components for city driving.....gotcha. You are officially the brolander.

    I honestly hit train tracks with the dakars and the billies and I am happy with it.
