Point of clarification

Layer Cake winery sent all the sponcers 6 bottles of wine, not Saucelito Canyon Vineyard. For us to send that many free bottles would probably be last years profit. Thank you Layer Cake and Go Ned.

What I did to make my suspension great.

First I put in Hyperpro front springs, smother and stiffer with less bottoming. Then an Ohlins rear shock set for my weight. Very nice but now the front end was too stiff so I added on AirCells to...

I buy my bearings at an independent bearing shop. Their quite common, so NAPA might have them. Ask by bearing # 6204-2RS1/C3 or C2 or what ever. The last bearings I put in were C3 on both sides so...
