    Yes I think a splitter valve would work, If I went that route

    I think You guys just like to keep me welding away:);)

    I have been working on this today, And went with your Idea, and the others that also pointed It out, with the tube...I figured by the time I got more weight on the front, I could have this rear Stabilizer set up and running

    tree spade

    Hi Danny,

    your spade looks great, was wondering how you are making out with it and if you had any sketch's of the dimensions you would share? I could use one of these and building one seems like the best option for me

    thanks for any help

    Luke

    And if nothing else- you have the 4 tire rotate under control in NASCAR fashion! Seriously- great job. Keep us in the loop.
