I have a friend that had a buddy of ares build him some on his 08 and they look good and work great. When he does a boosted launch now it grips great. Im going to get a set made for me.

I love my PMF's so far. Really improved the shifting on my 250,275,310 tunes. I only have a 4" lift with 35" tires. My factory u-joint at the rear diff would cause a bad shutter under heavy acceleration - when the pinion angle was bad. New greaseable u-joint fixed that, but it made me realize the amount of axle wrap these things see. Talk to Trevor @ PMF.

Is this advice coming from all the suspension builds you do...if so I wouldn't give a warm bucket of piss for your opinion.
