It's a cool idea but I've never heard of anyone on here using them. I will say that the guy who made that thread (Miles) is an S-series expert who's contributed TONS of knowledge on various s-series forums. From some of his other threads that I've read, I think it's safe to say that he wouldn't promote the product if it was just a gimmick

Yeah I know, I made my quick disco's off his idea. Is there anyway to talk to him though? Or anyone who's ran them??? He obviously had not actually tried them yet from the link I posted, so doesn't really tell me much. I want to read about or talk to someone who has actually put them through the paces on a ZR2.

I'm sure that they work, but the only real reason to run them is if your stock leaf spring bushings are limiting your articulation. If you aren't really pushing the limits of your suspension system, I see little value in using them.

Exactly...that's why I am interested in them. But I want to talk to someone that can tell me how they felt, any problems, shackle used, noticed gains, rd ride/o.r. ride,etc. I can't believe out of all the people to see this nobody knows someone who has ran them, oh well, keep hoping someone will!
