About 1 1/2 hrs., Tein's Stec, 1.7 frnt 1.5 back. May settle a little more in a couple of weeks we'll see.

Thanks everyone! I'm really happy with it so far. Still a few more Mods to do yet as the $$ come. I want it all now. LOL I know then I'd start looking for more to do to it. :D

looking good so how do you like the ride?
Really not bad. It's as good if not better than stock. Instead of a jolt on bumps you get a little bounce. But I'm use to old school when we heated the springs....LOL That was some bounce even when on fairly smooth streets.:eek: So putting lowering springs on cars now days is smoooooth in comparison. Yea I'm an old man but still love my rides and riding low. I refuse to grow up because thats no fun.:cool:

Well I'll be 61 next month:eek: When everyone else was jacking their cars up (Rat Rods) I was driving "Led Sleds" chopped,channeled and Frenched. No not a "Mexican Low Rider". Just Old School white boy style....LOL. Still bored & stroked with 3/4 race cam, Dual Quads linked progressive and etc.. Some guys use to say "if it don't go chrome it". Made a lot of them eat their words....LOL If your not sure what all that is ask your Dads or maybe your Grandfathers..LOL. So like I said I'm an old fart but when it comes to my cars I'll never grow up. Also I'm learning so much from you ppl here on this site and appreciate all the help I received. The cars today are so different from what I use to work on when I was younger. As I got older I just had all the work done for me by others. Now doing things myself again I remember how much better it is. The pride factor is back. Much more satisfying.
Oh yea and dsimes everyone knows for every piece of vinyl you add you add an extra 25 Hp. "It's called vinyl tuner".........lmao:cool:
