Looks like a lot more flex up front - mine is just the opposite, loose in back, attached up front. Do you get too much drop for the CVs with the Donahoes?SOAZ said:Sway bars attached in the rear loose in the front! I'm happy: :arabia:
Travel in front should be identical to stock. Increasing it just causes too many cv issues. I wouldn't do the upper arm unless it was "given" too me, but I may turn mine into the 1 inch longer version sometime down the road. It just doesn't make enough of a difference to spend the time right now.jeffryscott said:Looks like a lot more flex up front - mine is just the opposite, loose in back, attached up front.

The reason he uses limit straps is because the kit uses a shock that is too long and would extend too far if you didn't have limit straps. The donahoe coilover, stock shocks etc are designed to limit the down travel and handle the weight of the wheel when it wants to keep drooping.xcmountain80 said:I forget what lift if any your running up front but I have the SS lift and use his limit straps to keep CV's in check. Though running 3" in the front w/o straps could possibly lead to cv disslocation or worse.
Regarding limit straps, most actual strap mfg's will make them to the length you want and with as many layers as you want up to physically fittling them thru their hardware. The more layers the less stretch but the harder they 'hit'.xcmountain80 said:Stretch, very true. Though they haven't stretched much I will keep an eye on it but being they are on the front of the truck and don't get flexed out to much the speed at which they stretch will be slower, I also noticed the pyrotect straps I have are thicker than say the type Procomp offers which might aid in lessening the stretch. I know there are sway bar disco but for the Runners they dont really do a darn thing.
