    Looks like it works good, judging from the video needs some shocks, lots of rebound

    I ended up picking up the explorer from the owner that john built it for. I swapped out the springs back for the super flex.

    did some up grades to the explorer the past couple of months. i broke the steering gear box so when i had it off realized that the frame was starting to buckle on the drivers side. i ended up plating both sides of the frame rail.
    [​IMG]
    The factory track bar mount was cracking so i built a new one- shouldn't have a problem its 3/16 plate. also had to get an adjustable track bar
    [​IMG]
    some how the 9 inch 3rd member cracked and it was blowing oil out of it so i bought a axle that was set up the same for spool and gears and swapped it in. it had disc brakes so i also installed them. i had to get one inch wheel spacers because of how the wheels were made.
