I think cause you left it 4wd thats wut is messing things up, how did you do the front suspension wit the 4wd ? and wut size cylinders did you use up front ? The 4wd frame only has bout 5 inches of travel so you should not be using any thing bigger than a 6 inch cylinder

Just wanted to put my 02¢ in. I was GIVEN some brand-new never-pushed CCE 8s. I had them in for about a week. left them lifted, NOT LOCKED overnight. Next thing I knew they were leaking. Then as I was hopping around a little bit one day, I bent the hell outta one. (Damn shallow spring cups).

Anyway, lesson learned. I bought some Red's... I hope these are going to work a little better.

YL.
