Mine is just slow as well side note on the Rubicon Run little sluice I believe there was a pop noise which was the spot welds on the bottom of the track,both sides gave way when full droop and full compression was achieved at opposite corners

Update on the Ptarmingan

I lost the pads on the rear brakes and was stopping on the caliper...burned through the rotors and had to replace the calipers. Made a few calls and stopped the Mountain High Performance to have a load Cryo-ed. Slotted and cross drilled rotors from Christo, a new set of American made drill bits, and some left hand drill bits and extractors made in PRC , all got frozen.

I also have been working on the new leather and went to the source for a real set of hog ring pliers. $65.00 out the door, not Chinese made, and should last well beyond just this set of leather.

The brand is C.S. Osborne, Harrison New Jersey.

The speaker is remote, there is a jack on the back for an external speaker. As an added bonus, the rear passengers can still hear the stock one. I am putting the CB and HAM speakers in the dash so no extra stuff cluttering up the interior.
