    The ride in the front is wonderful but I feel like I need more support for the rear end probably just old leaf springs but I just put shock extenders and I’ll see how it rides, as soon as I did the flip kit the rear end got bouncy af, installed bags and those air shocks, might clamp the leaf springs, plus it’s just a heavy suburban

    Interesting, I was contemplating doing the flip on my truck but have heard the same about ride quality. After you installed the bags and air shocks did it help or ?

    i just installed shock extenders today and it also helped, as of now I’d say the ride quality is better then stock with Monroe air shocks and SlamAir bags with shock extenders I run everything at about 80-100 psi going to try clamping the leafs next to stiffen them to lower the psi in everything

    Extenders and proper shocks go a long way generally

    Very clean burn! Love the stance but the Daytona aren't working for me. Maybe it's the offset I don't love. Either way I'm looking forward to following along.
