Been getting my ass beat packaging this but passenger side is finally completed with bumps and limit strap installed.   Had to re plumb the trans cooler and move a bunch of stuff. Mark.

Good idea. I'll see if they will match the price.  What length did you go with? I'm thinking 3"

2.5,  I read till my eyes hurt.  In the end I talked with Logan at Poly and he made some suggestions.   My rig is 5 up 9 down on the shock.  Mark

I'm the same stroke.  Do you hit bump at 2.5 or 2"

Bumpstops should bottom  (if they ever do) with 1/2 inch of shaft showing on shock. Mark

Those are looking really good.

 That level looks just like the one I use to hold up the hood on my Camry. I guess I will eventually have to buy new gas springs for it. But today I have to go buy a new battery for it.

Maybe its just me. But when I look at pics 1 and 2, while scrolling up on my monitor, the treads on your tires look inverted. The optical illusion isn't as bad when scrolling down.

I can now install my prop rod as the cross over tube is done.  And your right about the tire picture, had to look twice.  Mark
