Re: better ride quality

The ride quality is not vary good. I found it feels better with a little weight in the bed. I can give the specks on the front shocks if it would help but don't have the rear.

I know that air bags will give me a smoother ride but I don't know if I want to go that far if I don't need to.

What do you all recommend?
You need to determine the spring rate of the rear coils. What brand?
What shocks & relocating kit was used?
What is the wheel tire combination?

Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....
