    Could we get a discussion going on compatibility with aftermarket springs; if limit straps, or new bump-stops are needed; and what the geometry options are for aftermarket shocks and brackets with the flip kit?

    I currently have Dakar springs and OME Nitros. My understanding is that the shocks limit droop by more than half of what the springs are capable of - the flip kit AND new shocks and tabs are needed for gaining articulation.

    The kit available now is for stock springs only. A version for OMEs is on the way, I don't have measurements on the Dakar springs currently.

    There will be an official thread with more details later today.
