    I talked to Shock Therapy about 2 weeks ago and was told it would be several months before they have kits ready. I ordered the JBS kit on the 12th but their site still says processing, so no info on it. It appears both kits will be about the same, the JBS will add 1-2" of lift the other may not. Both are using Eibach springs and neither will give up much info on what rate or length. The springs run about $70 each so the JBS price isn't to bad.

    Mine sits lower than stock will the preload cranked all the way and 3 inch over stock tires.

    Shock Therapy has great customer service! Also, check out Bobby's Cycle Works, a lot of the Viking guys are running his springs. Again, great customer service and a great price too! He has a Facebook page as well

    Eleven days for processing and still not shipped?
    I didn't think anyone was that slow these days.

    I just talked to Shock Therapy and I was told that their soon to be offered spring kit will improve ground clearance although it's unsure how much. I think I will hold out and patiently wait for this ST kit. My gut feeling tells me it will be worth it.

    11 days does seem a bit long to process an order. I emailed JBS late last week about his spring kit and have yet to get a response. ST on the other hand responded to my inquiry within 30 minutes of sending it.

    Ya, I'm a little disappointed myself. Only upside is that it has rained, snowed or been bitterly cold around here lately and some thing has to go out of the garage to get it done so I'm already sitting on a pile of parts.

    Monday will be 2 weeks, so I will try to get in touch with them then if it hasn't shipped.

    There's FCR Suspension in East Palestine, OH too. Really good guys to deal with. I had him completely rebuild, revalve, and respring my shocks. Haven't put enough miles on it yet to make an educated opinion yet.

    If you dont mind, what was the cost?

    I had never heard of them, info is going in my tool box for sure.
