Probably the dumbest thing I have seen in a long time. As for the shock set up, looks like a third grader set it up.

hahaha, glad you all found it amusing. I've never seen a shock setup that looked like a maze before so I had to see what others thought.

that used to be the way to roll here in Arizona
folks went so far as to drill some of the shocks and drain the fluid so your would only have 2 out of 6 per wheel ( for example) working
