Well Eric ,as a matter of fact i have,,
at rest now the angle is just a bit under straight across, so at droop which it won't be that much , i should be okay, engine probably doesn't make enough power now to break cvs,

but the longer shock is for future use, , i am thinking new shock hoops, and a hoop over engine,

except i would have to fix it afterwards, and i like the car, ,
 






in the new pics you can see the torsion bars, they are now gone and were only on there as an experiment, i was testing them over the coilovers, to see ride quality , even with them let off all the way they were too harsh after riding on coilovers for a few thousand miles, ,
 


















Hey Jon
It towed fine except for one thing, my tired old engine just doesn't have what it used to.
the weight seemed okay on the hitch and the springs didn't sag out, they stayed up fine, it was cushy with the extra weight on the back, but not to the point of overdoing it, that is a very heavy boat, so all in all i would say it handled it well , ,
 






k i will take a pic of my limit straps today and post it when i get home so you can see them ..
 












and here they are, i did the same both sides,,length is 20 inches eye to eye, the bottom bolt is in the sway bar link hole,
