  3. I've ordered the following sleeves from an industrial store: https://www.mcmaster.com/ I based the measurements off of the Monroe website: http://www.monroe.com/en-US/e-catalog/37204 . Fingers crossed!

    When mounting these bilsteins, did you guys find sleeves to go in the 16mm side? Or did you just slide the shock onto the mount with just the rubber bushing? The sleeve kit that came with mine is too small to fit the 16mm mount.
  5. Hey I've just run into this same issue. I can't see the photos you posted but how did it work out running the shocks mounted with no eyelet between the bushing and the bolt? Did it cause any issues?
  6. I’d love to hear what you think about the difference in ride quality from the OME MD! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I know you said you’d prefer not to go this route but here’s a photo for reference if anyone else is interested. I removed the plastic liner and left the lid on top of the sub for protection Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I put this low profile one in the rear cubby, works great. I have enough room beside it for a tire repair kit and some little bits. Rockville RW10CA 10" 800 Watt... https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B019Z3R582?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
  9. Hey guys, does anyone have any experience using these? http://timbren.com/blog/products-page/nrpf4a/ found another topic that someone had asked about them but people were mainly referring to the xterra and wd21 versions. looking to replace my completely shredded stock bump stops and thought these would be a nice upgrade, I just don’t want them to mimic airbags too much (stiffen the suspension/prohibit flex). *EDIT: Damn I didn’t realize they were $200+, that’s a lot for 2 chunks of rubber...

    I like the Firestik mounted on the tail light guards! I've got some on order, might have to do the same.
  11. Gotcha, yeah I’m planning on staying away from spacers in general. Going to be trying out the 9447 with OME HD fronts in the next couple weeks. Hopefully the extra inch or two in the rear doesn’t make my 31s look too tiny! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks! I’m also to curious to hear people’s opinions on the change in unloaded ride quality going from OME MD in the rear to 9446/7. The 9447 LR springs are a higher spring rate than both stock and OME springs no? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Thanks Micah, I love the way your Pathy is looking in the pics you posted earlier in the thread. Just to confirm, you're on OME HD springs with no spacers in the front, and LR9447 in the rear also with no spacers. And you said you're on 32's right?
  14. Awesome to hear you guys are still pushing forwards! Super excited to see the end results.
