yeah they have a really bad neg. camber when its all the way down. its actually a little pos. when it all the way up.

i went from a 5" slam specialties bag to 6" slam specialties bag. it lifts a few inches higher and it lift with less pressure since there is more air volume

What would you guys recommend for the best all around setup? I was thinking of going with the firestone 255Cs in back and Mark8s in front, for the best bang for the buck. I'm not trying to lay frame (but it would be nice) and keep it fairly straight forward.

Gary, do you have a full size shot of your avatar, if that's your bird?

yeah the mark install isn't mine.

the mark front and a 255 in the reaa is a nice set-up if you don't care to lay. the mark units get a nice lift. Joel bender on here has that.


Wilson - northwest Fresno, is that what you mean?

That setup up works pretty well if your not looking to lay. Just remember Marks have their fair share of problems, that setup lasted me about of week before the units decided to go south.


Thanks to Scott here a little teaser of the new stuff

Thats looking good

Do you sell the bags? or do you just show how to put them on?

I'm originally from Fresno (well close by from a town called Riverdale) and I fly back home very often I could buy the stuff and Instal it here I just have no I dea where to begin, if I see how its done I can figure out hoe to do it. I think I saw your car at freakfest a couple of years ago. Good work!
