Thats interesting knowledge about the unsprung weight. I will have to look into that but it sounds plossible being that the suspension off sets the weight about 40% for everything thats on them because of the reverse gravity thing (not to get too technical lol) but i know that essentially losing 1lb out of the cab or whatever is actually like losing 1/2 lb is why you have to take so much out to make a difference. So i can see how removing unsprung weight would essentially be more effective but less options. still its very interresting stuff.

Anyone know how low you can take a stock SES suspension? I may have to buy some adjustable shocks but i wanna do what i can with the stock suspension. if anyone knows how to get an inch or so with stock that would be perfect
