    Perry, do you plan on adding any more weight to the rear end? I was looking at some pictures today and saw your shackle angle on the rear leafs. You could get a ton more down travel if you adjusted it. If you plan on adding a heavy rear bumper or some corner protection that might help. If not you could either take a leaf out of the spring packs or move the shackle hanger forward a little. I personally like around 45 degrees of shackle angle. From the pictures it looks like yours are nearly vertical.

    I do not have the swivel joints (or johnny joints to some people) on my 1st gen Toy. I would be hesitant to put them on a daily driver, but that's just me. Supposedly they are perfectly fine for highway driving if they are on one end of the spring only though.

    But in Perry's case I think he would get a ton more droop and a far softer ride if the angle was adjusted. If he got new springs with the lift though, they may break in, and help the angle too.

    Just installed a new ACOS system & bump stops on my front end. You can
    adjust it from 1.5" to 3.5" of lift.

    Novak Cable Shifter

    If you are having problems with your stock shifter linkage this is a great replacement.
