Even when backing out of my driveway, the front feels harsh when it meets the pavement from the dip if I am moving even relatively fast, Not sure if its the valving or the spring rates.
Wheeling everything feels fine though. Big Chris told me how they measure spring rate and I forget now the specifics but I'll ask.
I'll drop by the shop one day and get the details. I forget now if I am stiff then soft or vice versa for the two springs.

I think it said 250 lower and 200 or 150 (ICR right now) on the upper.
BTW, I did tighten up all the BMs and the harshness has improved. You may have been right there.
Oh and one more super cool update.
I followed along with Paul's super awesome Blem deal on the interco birddogs.
Bad asss deal at a great cost. So I'm not worried about beadlocks no more!
Fixed my spacing issue now too. I'm only 2" wider now in the front than the rear. Almost perfect.
I was running 14 psi all weekend last time we went out and I'm thinking I could go lower and not care but don't want to lose the height.
Now, only to find someone to buy those nissan supercharged 17" rims. Any takers? I'll make a deal!
oh and trick or treat came early for me.
I picked this up earlier in October.
It will probably sit around until I have the time and money to swap but you damn right, its a full float FJ80 rear end with center drop out, disc brakes and perfect 63" wms to match with my front.
I'll be full float one day fo sho!
The plan is to cut all that mess off and get a 'real' CV shaft for the rear output of the driveline since its offset to the passenger side a little.
Or I could scrap the housing, keep the outer brackets, sell the shafts, triangulate the suspension and well I still have to regear the front and rear to match eventually. May go detroit at that point or just leave it open. Haven't decided yet.
Either way, we're talking thousands here... $$$
At least I got an axle for a good deal. They are hard to find around here.
Could just be a pipe dream and the truck takes a poop one day.
