    That's a crazy-heavy spring for your weight. 56x13.0 was a good call...

    Think so?

    Im not having any issues with the .64's. It still corners like a champ and is much more capable offroad.

    I do have stock shim stacks and what not. Maybe the extra heavy spring is making up for that? I dont know really. Im no suspension guru :ear

    .64 is far from a heavy spring for the front end on a 990. What do you weigh fully geared up?
