none.... i assume they believe that the ability to shift weight will be beneficial but at a drastic loss of dampening ability. ashman ran hydraulic rams in the rear of his xj buggy for awhile but they couldnt stand up to the rapid movement required to dampen

They had air in them so were air springs which have no dampening, had to run external shocks. In the end a fox air shock was smaller lighter and softer for fast stuff but not stable like the air ram with pressure on both sides of the piston similar to an ORI shock.

I know WHO he is. I've just never seen him post. Not in forever anyways. I've seen like 1500 pictures of his Jeep but never his screen name.
