  1. My results: 15" of travel Approx 1 degree positive camber gain at full jounce 3/4" toe-in at full jounce and full droop (95% of travel has no bumpsteer) I filled the shocks with nitrogen to 300psi, and backed it off until I found a sweet spot (around 150-180 psi). It is unbelievably smooth compared to my old beam, and it doesn't 'feel' any heavier when driving. Now the car flies through the whoops with impunity. The turning circle is a bit larger, but I really can't complain. I'm going to have to ditch my 3x3 arms for something longer/wider... I don't have enough travel in the rear now! Pricing varies with options, but it's competitive with big beams.
  2. Ended up buying it. Can't wait to try it out.
  3. http://a-arm.com/_wsn/page2.html I'm talking to Pete at A-arm.com about this setup. Just sent in the dimensions from my car, and he's going to see if it'll fit. I'm really liking the idea of ditching the beam. Thoughts?
  4. I'm about 2 days away from pulling the trigger on some air-shocks as well, and I still have my doubts. Coilovers would kill my budget. My car is a little lighter than the OP's car, around 1000#s empty, 1300#s with me and a passenger. Using 3x3s/930s with about 12" of travel. I've never ridden in an air-shock car, so I have no idea what they're like. I've heard all sorts of bad things; that they're uncontrollably bouncy off jumps, too stiff over whoops, and unstable in turns. I can't tell if that's just dual-sport haterade, or what. So, what about the ride quality? Are they too bouncy on landing? Who makes the best air-shock for sand? Anyone using them recently want to tell me what I'm getting into?
