haha... nah, its an re-8.

do they even make a 9"?! Its a pretty easy fit. I actually had to patch up the frame some from were it was cut before.... it WAS cut too much for just a airlift 2b7, but i only had a 1" upper cup due to laying 20's on stock/modified control arms.

How would the ride compare behind/under axle compared to Firestone sleeves?

typically, yes, a 2b6 can max out your control arms... however, i'm running stock blazer spindles and barely legal unijoint control arms, so i SHOULD be getting alot more then just locking the stock control arms.

and re-8's have more travel, i think its a typo on their site. If i'm not mistaken, they get nearly 12" of lift.

ALSO. having a larger bag up front means the suspension is more responsive to pressure in the system. For example: if it maxes the suspension at 50 psi (i don't know what it maxes out at yet) then when you throw 150-200 at it, it will launch skyward. Thus how i used to hop around 4" on only 145 psi.

none-the-less, i mostly did it just for the wow factor. How many guys you know running re-8's in all 4 corners?
