    I almost feel like I have to redo the videos because the front sway bar was binding and after my washer mod, the ride is much much smoother:

    So I got the front Walker Evans installed. Are the front shocks supposed to be able to rotate slightly if you grab the shock and twist it?

    All four should rotate slightly as the WE use spherical bearings vs the OEM rubber bushings\metal grommet. This allows the shock to move freely vs binding as the OEM will do.

    I can’t thank you enough for all your help on a range of topics. I put about 60 miles on it since I installed the front shocks. It made a huge difference in the ride especially since I’m running steel belted DOT approved tires. They don’t flex at all.

    You're welcome! Make sure if you still have your sway bars connected you check them for free play. I'm running 18 PSI in all 4 of my tires and the ride is amazing especially after fixing my front sway bar binding issue.

    I wonder if there is much adjustment in those? After a lift is installed it’s nice to adjust the links so the sway bar is level.

    There's a nut with what looks like a threaded rod on one end so I would guess that they are adjustable.

    I forgot to crosslink this post\video: https://www.wolverineforums.com/foru...oad-rally.html

    I must have driven 500 miles in my X4 in less than a week preparing for, during, and after the rally. The day before the rally we had to mark the route and be back in time for registration. The Poker Run was estimated to be 5-6 hours and we didn't really have that kind of time so I had to run through the route much faster than I would have run it for enjoyment purposes. There wasn't a single technical section that I didn't power through which the WE shocks gave me the capability of doing. No way would I have gone that fast on stock shocks even with the added protection\confidence of the skid plates, rock sliders, and arm guards.
