The front shocks will improve your ride 10 fold. I was so happy when I finally installed my shocks. What brand you getting?

I bought some bell tech for the rear so i am going to buy the same for the front. My ride is still kind of bumpy though with the bell tech in the rear i guess is because my front is still stock

No, I bought belltechs for the rear as well and thought the same about the ride, but I got the front shocks changed and the ride still sucked in the rear. I'm not very happy with the belltech shocks. I changed stockers out with DJM shocks in the front and am very pleased.

Oh really so your ride is not bumpy or anything?
I might get the DJM shocks for the front then.

My front rides like a dream. Better than stock.

The rear is way bumpy though. When I save up some more money I'm gonna try out some different shocks for the rear.

Whenever I did my 3/4 drop when we were installing the rear flip kit we had to drill out the hole on the plate to fit the nipple into the plate it took like 2 mins per side and mine works just fine. The front on the other hand was a total pain getting it aligned with the Camber caster kit. I broke both the bolts to hold the kit in place and had to buy new hardened bolts and it took about an hour or two to get the alignment done.
