      Dang... you guys are OLD!

      I hear ya, I am glad I had a boy first to watch after his sister if they do come! I still got a while before we try for #2... and even then I still hope it's a boy, even though I think a daughter would be awesome.

      Got my buddy coming over tonight, more car fun will surely ensue, along with some beer! Pics later!

      The super thread is now a compare your moobs thread!

      ^^That super looks sick. I actually like the gold mesh wheels on it a lot!

      And JD II- as long as I work on the car, and all the yahoo's above me don't get it locked (don't get me wrong, I wouldn't want it any other way!) I willl keep the thread alive-

      Stopping by the metal shop today so he can cut some 3" holes in the jig for the rear trailing arms. Then tomorrow we start cutting and tacking!

      to be totally honest, i thought about it, and supers do look good slammed. and i'm also thinking about actually doing it, now that i know its possible. as for the speed bumps in my town, i'll just keep a jackhammer on my roof rack

      I used to drive a pretty low super around tallahassee all the time. At first I hit everthing, bumps, potholes, road reflectors! Then one day I realized I hadn't hit anything. It just becomes a frame of mind to avoid things...

      And I could get almost anywhere and avoid the speedbumps.

      So I say go for it!

      looks good! did you get those from TopLine?
      Engineers do it better.

    20. 10-07-2011 12:51 PM #90
      No, after a lot of research I found Topline only uses a 71.5# spring. And it is a 12" spring, which is shorter than stock, but not what we were wanting. So we order through QA1. Got 150# springs and coilover kit which will be stiff and should keep the front from bottoming out on every little bump!

      Then we built the coilover omusing the adjust-a-strut cup kit suspension.

      Topline has different springs available but not sure they go all the way to 150lbs. I use the 71lbs springs on mine and it's stiff enough, but then again I am not low

      you gotta link for those?

      Garey- yeah, I did a lot of reading on germanlook about what people have tried, and humble said to go with 150#'s. I don't mind them being stiff. It will help reduce body roll a lot and keep the corners off the ground!

      As for links, I will get them up for you tonight when I get home

      I think the problem with such a stiff spring will be increased oversteer, which is not what I want, but on a lowered car it's not like it's going to be auto crossed

    25. 10-07-2011 02:24 PM #95
      Not unless we are racing for slowest times!

      as for the oversteer. Humble auto-x's his and I guess 125# spring weren't stiff enough. I'll link you to the thread later that I read.

      Odd, it was just right with mine, and I had ****ty tires too. Very little oversteer (only if I really got into it)

      Built some 4 years ago but they haven't seen the road yet. Someday I'll finish the car.
      Keep up with your innovations. Always like to see that. Have always been a fan of supers, especially german lookers. These springs are around 350# so they have to go. What length did you go with? Interested to see how that spring rate works for you.

      it'll never leave the garage in the winter, i got a gmc to drive daily, the bug will be more of a sunday driver, but more than just sundays

      i decided this from watching my brother try and drive his golf down our unplowed driveway last winter. he got 4 feet and got stuck and pulled it down the driveway with a truck, the car lost controll (his tires were 100% bald) and got stuck in a snowbank. then he pulled it put backwards and got it stuck in another snowbank... then he just said fluff it and yanked it. all i can say is im suprised he still had bumpers on it. another fine example of the negligence of mk3 drivers.

      and then im thinking of going back to a resto cal look on my super. im thinking in resale value, i want it to appeal to more than just german look fans. this way i can appeal to young people who like lowered cars, or i can put a stock motor and rasie it back up for old people, or if a teenage girl wants it... actually, no. a teenage girl will ruin it.

      Justin- Build it for yourself man, the hell with "resale"! Suspension and motors are easy to swap for stock!

      Air-Skooled- Why havent they seen the road yet? Still in the garage on the project?

      i know, it's completely in my taste, but i know im not going to be keeping it forever. by the time im 20 and am ellegible for my motorcycle lisence i'm probably going to sell it for a harley, or if my gmc sh*ts the bed im going to get a ford ranger so i want to keep it appealing to everyone


      and those havent seen the road because he wants to donate them to me

      Saw this over the weekend at Cruisin' the Coast show in Mississippi. '73 on airbags, electronic everything inside.

      Stumbled on this through google and was happy to see it's not dead. Definitively gonna keep an eye on this. I'm building a 74 super myself, but the front is as low as i can get it before the pitman arm hits the control arm when i steer. Have you run into this problem as well? I'm considering a rack and pinion setup from a 75 super, if i can find one. What have you done?

    33. 10-18-2011 09:12 AM #103
      It is not dead... I am in Texas right now. I have some pics to update with. I will do it while I am here. I will be back on the project by this weekend!

      What do you guys do to lower the rear?

    35. 10-20-2011 07:03 PM #105
      The back was lowered in the pic above just dropping the spring plates a couple clicks.

      The way we are doing it now is by actually cutting up the rear trailing arm thanks to loosenutz! We will have a 4" drop with stop suspension travel.
