      ...i know that there are easier ways to install this without taking all of these things out and apart, but my whole idea going into this project was to make it clean and run the electrical in the same bundles of wire that the car was made with. i wanted this to be an extremely clean set up, as it is my daily driver....

      Hey Tyler , looking great so far, with those hockey pucks and liquid rubber top mounts you taking it a little overboard IMO, but i am sure it was your dads idea , can i get a little more information on that kit.
      Did you talk to Scott by any chance and cleared things up with original front mounts?

      the website for the liquid rubber is http://www.jgreer.com
      scott told me to use the front bump stops and cut them 1/4" above that metal cup we knocked out.

      FRONT STRUTS
      on the upper control arms i spun the bolt around (the bolt head is now where the nut used to be, near the bad) in order to give the air bag more clearance when the car is slammed (thanks misha)

      i also lowered the upper control arms 1.5" from original stock position to prolong the life of and take the stress off of the rubber bushings due to the lower ride height of the car (again thank you misha)

      ALUMINUM MANIFOLD

      as shown below i used an 8" aluminum manifold with 3/8" threaded holes. this is where i attached all my senders for my digital display, my flow controllers, and all the ptc fittings.

      If you cut that rubber nub off of the top of the control arm you will get a little lower without any negative effects. Do you plan on doing anything about the control arms hitting the body and inhibiting the car from going lower?

      i looked under the car and my exhaust downpipe and frame is less than an inch off the ground right now. so i'm not going to drop the front anymore, well maybe a tad, but thats it...the back is another story
