Personly i too favour the heinz brand although i have found that the sausage and beans varient tends to cycle easier on the front due to the increased weight of the deep fat fryer, I use the full english on the back to try and get a more even weight distribution.

Has anyone tried tomato soup? I did hear that the viscosity of the soup absorbs shocks a lot better than beans do. Used with sausage trailing arms you get better articulation and suspension flexibility. If you have a petrol engine with carrot top plugs, then if you break down and have to wait ages for the big yellow taxi - at least you have a square meal to keep you going.

Les. :lol:

Decided to eat the beans and use the JJ's for the arms :)

The after market arms used on the 4" lift for the truck, had fixed bushes at each end and had a tendancy to destroy the axle mounts for the arms :rolleyes: This was a suggested route to take with the idea to reduce the stresses?

I take it you guys know Chris at Exact has these in stock at great prices

Yep :P

Very well built joints, but they are pricey. Especially if your looking at 16 of the beasties (upper and lower control arms 8 front, 8 Rear):blink:

Ive used johnny joints on my truck and they work really well, they allow for so much more free movement than a standard bush.

However i di managed to destroy the poly centers on 3 joints due to amount of pressure my 3 link on the front was exererting when i did not have enough seperation between the top and bottom links on the axle (portals) :rolleyes: .
