Steve,

I'm calling Keith tomorrow and I'll find out the spring #'s. I'm going to bitch and moan about those N46 shocks and I'll see what he says. Usually he plays hard ball when I say he's wrong but this time I'm gonna press on him. How do I fix the binding on those bushings? Do I just tighten them more?

Neil, you need to get offset arms, tightening will only destroy the bushings. Here's a pic of my offset trailing arms on my Disco (just to give you an idea). Hope this helps.

Those are nice. BP sure as hell dosn't sell scorpion racing stuff. Where can I order that? From their website or is there a better distributor down here? I called Bp this morning, they said it was "I" who ordered those shocks (yeah right). I didn't even know what I was buying, I just said I need new springs / shocks. Anyway I ordered N44's, they are out of stock right now but they'll send it to me when they come in. Thanks for the advice guys, I'll try the shocks first, if that don't work, than I'll try those kick ass trailing arms.

I just wanted to finish this thread, and report back that N44's solved the sway problem. No more sway, even if I tried to make it sway, amazing. I didn't even change the trailing arm bushings. Thanks you were right Steve! Thats why this board rocks.
