that would potentially allow the chassis to flex giving more bite to the rear since your weight is there. just another thing to try later on.

I just used wire cutters and cleaned it up with an exacto knife. Came out clean and easy.

I keep hearing if you are running stock and stock only B5R is better.

Is there any truth to that?
