I've had this beam for over a year now and it has performed flawlessly. The construction is very solid. It fits a stock body car with no cutting because of the way the shock towers are formed, its a really nice design. Along with my CB dropped spindles I could easily lay the beam on the ground, there is plenty of adjustment there. I know that a lot of people claim that with a narrowed beam you don't "need" front shocks, but honestly I think people just tell themselves that to make themselves feel better, lol. My car rides nice for as low as it is. Also, for me, I wanted front shocks for weight transfer during hard launches. At $410 including the shortened torsion leaves I think the price is very fair for the quality. They also offer shortened tie rods, so you can get everything from them. The people at Franklin's are really nice too, and build some bad ass rides! 8-)

For now just regular "lowered" shocks, I think they are the one's CB performance sells... Kermit can probably get them too. Eventually I'm going to switch to adjustable drag shocks 8-)
