Hey bud I got the Superior superflex kit in 4" with amada shocks on my V8 ute and I'm not impressed with the front travel. Being a "superflex kit" I thought I'd get more out of it. Did you find the same?

Mine is ok but could be better. I ordered 4" shocks n 3" springs but the shocks are still limiting travel and I'm pretty sure they have given me 3" shocks from my measurement of them in the car... Not happy but I haven't had a chance to do anything bout it and probably too late now.

What brand of rims and what off-set did you end up going with ?

Nice truck mate, I hope to upgrade to a 76 one day!

Do you use separate offsets from front to back to make the track width the same?

sorry guys not on here much anymore.
the rims are neg 12 as its all I could get at the time in a beadlock. and nah same offset I don't think the difference in track is noticeable enough to worry about it.

Did a heap of work over the weekend. Serviced winch, made up a second spare beadlocked tyre, some rock sliders and brush bars, telescopic light bar on the rear carrier and and fold down table on the back door. Nearly read for the cape.
