Bought a full suspension from Shaikh under his recent group buy (~$1300 for custom shocks, springs, perches, bump stops, etc. -- which I thought was a smoking deal). I'll support a young, enthusiastic guy trying to make a go over an old drunk any day.

Should be getting them around X-mas. I'll write it up then.

That deal pissed me off so bad. I have now spent hundreds more and I still have EBAY SLEEVES!!!!! AAAAAAAGGGHHH!!! I don't know how he makes any money at that price. At the same time Bernie's prices for a revalve went from $100 a shock back in March to $169 a shock now!

Once again kids, the lesson is not to just cheap out to save a few bucks! That is what I get for being a cheap bastard!

Sixshooter--- Love the pic, I am gonna have to make that one work friendly and hang in my cube!

Well I was going to get started tonight and hopefully finish tomorrow. We'll see how much motivation I end up having after dinner though.

Hehe. This is what I was getting at.

You should definitely put something like "Stewart time paradox survivor #xx" in your signature. Lol

Even though is taken so long, once you have then in you'll be so happy. By far the best upgrade to my whole suspension set up was these shocks.

Update:

Since it's now tomorrow, I have the new shocks/springs etc. installed. Took it for a quick spin around the block. Not building boost for some reason, i'll work on that later.

For now, i'll just say this: it was worth the wait. I cannot believe how comfortable this setup is on shitty roads even with 550f/350r springs.

Kinda always makes me sad to see people get fucked around and then when things go well they say it was worth the wait.....

How long do people have to wait for it to be worth it, or rather not worth it?

Either way, glad you got them.

Would almost be worth it for Stewart Development to use this as a model for how he does business. Instead of giving any dates or promises at all, just tell customers they will receive their product someday. Telling the customers upfront that a delivery date isn't promised, it will be a long wait, but in the end it will be worth the wait...
