Congrats Mike and Ash! Looks like you had a beautiful day at a beautiful venue!

Mike Castle did the photos huh? That's a name I've not heard in a while.

Re: The Colorado BS thread

Looking at sway bars either Currie or ruffstuff... the ruffstuff is pretty steep at about $1000 total but it is extremely well made ,but the Currie at about $500 would probably do the job for me in the rear for added roll control on side hill... anyone have first hand experience with the Currie as far as it lasting without fixing it ?

I may not put one on as I still may not need it as I think some of my side hill body lean is possible leaks in the ORI strut lower chambers as they lose pressure after flexing pretty quick and an over night sit after full charge shows a 50 psi drop on the rears , so I'm going to either send them or try my hand at a first time rebuild, which they don't look very difficult , but I kinda want to send the used ones in from the flop shop so I can see if they have all the updated to the lower rebound I also may have 16 inch tubes put in them ... they are 18s this gives more time on the nitrogen stage without pulling oil when running little chrome .

Anywho I want a predictable side hill experience so if the struts alone don't do it a sway bar will go on I'm less concerned about 5ft of flex and more so about traction and control .

Arrowhead golf course near Roxborough Park in SW Denver metro. I texted Mike yesterday that my much better 1/2 and I were hitched at exactly that same spot 20 years ago. Cheers, Mike
