Morning all,
My truck is a 05 GU 4.2td cab chassis. Suspension wise im running Tough Dog 4" lift 45mm adj shockies blah blah.
Anyway drop boxes vs superior radius arms,dont want to go castor plates. I know that there is a $ differance & the hang up issue with the boxes but which option will I get more flex out of? Limited by the shockies travel/maxing out?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers

for me it came down to dollars, or more to the point, what the "minister for fun and finance" would let me spend. but if dollars weren't a problem then i'd have superflex arms over the drop boxes i have. although i have nothing negitive to say about drop boxes.... ive never been hung up on them and they are plenty solid enough to slide/scrape over rocks etc.

What jamestrol said, Had Superior boxes for a couple of years now and no hang up issues ever. Next step when cash is falling out my pocket is a Superior flex arm (left side only).

I was amazed how the steering/handling improved when I drove it after installing the drop boxes. I noticed the improvement IMMEDIATELY and that was just on road.

haha just get caster correction bushes :p na dont

in my old wagon i had drop boxes and they were amazing. not only do they readjust the caster angle but because the leading arms are now horizontal when you hit a ledge with your tyres they climb it easier because of the angle. (if that makes sense) and the stability was improver dramatically when i installed them

i have seen "superflex" arms in operation and wasnt to impressed for the price they are theres better things i could spend that money on
