Wow nice ride! Is that the max flex/stuff with the forklift? What are the part numbers for your mods to the SL? Do you plan on wheeling it?

Thanks guys. And it's the full superlift. Without egr, or shocks and coils. I used fox shocks and 6" rear coils. And no, that's the max flex with rear swaybar still connected.

Rear sway bar should not limit that much - front sway will be a serious limiter due to it's size. Do you plan on wheeling it? Where are you located?

Thats some serious modding.... wish I had the nuts to install the 2" RC lift i bought 3 years ago. I'm too worried about sacaficing the quality of ride AND wearing out the suspension parts, prematurely. That looks great though

And the ride is now better than stock in my opinion. It feels firm on the road and stable at all speeds and turns.
