Are you familiar with what’s going on regarding shipping? Paul indicated that everything was stalled due to someone being ill? I haven’t gotten any more explanation than that at the moment and my last email to Paul was in answered.

I did end up getting an answer from Paul, but I’m still spring less. Really hoping something happens soon, would love to hear that everything has shipped and is in transit. Waiting for Paul to respond again to most recent email.

I am still waiting for my shipping information also. It's slow that is for sure!

It's real! I hope some buyers do a before and after comparison/pics report or video.

Some of the guys in Europe seem to have a head start on getting them installed. It'll be a while for me as I am working through some other issued with my TGB and also need to look at new shocks as the ones on the TGB are worn to hell. I'll see if I can score some pics from some of the guys and post.

Received 7 of 8 springs. UPS is trying to track down the 8th. I will install the first four once the Cummins is up and running.

All have arrived. One was lost in UPS Limbo, but Paul sent a replacement. I will get one set installed once the Cummins is up and running.

Anyone here install theirs yet? I threw the front in on Sunday, but the uBolts didn’t have enough thread to get them torqued properly. I assume most everyone is using washers to make up the difference? The tap required to continue the threads would be a 16mm X 2.0 which is available but not without ordering.

Ended up installing some double thick 5/8” SAE washers. This gave me enough headroom for the nuts to be properly torqued without bottoming the threads.

If anyone is interested I may convert back to stock style springs. My mission with this truck has changed and the Parabolics are just not suitable anymore. PM me if you’re interested.
