      The LBs with that blue looks pretty good actually. Surprised me for sure.

      Im hesitant to put the bbs one due to the fact the rear is down all the way and remains to be quite high.


      Any advice on what I should or can do? remove the middle or rear collar for the koni coils?

      I just want the rears to be a bit lower so it doesnt look funny with 205/45 on my 9s in rear



      Pic of ride height









      any suggestions are greatly appeciated

      Yeah man... Put ONLY the spring out back. No perch, no adjusters.. nothing but the spring.

      That's how I'm running my KW's and it's perfect height.

      I think you should scrap the coilovers and toss them in the back of my car

      Well the thing is, your Koni's don't go low enough to reduce the wheel gap with a 17" RS and stretched tires. Even with the perches and collars all out the spring itself is significantly taller than say B&Gs, KWs or H&Rs. The Koni's do ride nicely though.

      I have a feeling I will be removing the rear to try an accomidate the new shoes sometime soon.


      -While she is up on the hoist the new Autotech Rear sway bar will be going in hopefully

      -Re weld in the head sheild, cat look alike on my test pipe- rattling is driving me nutts

      -Replace and install 2 more bolts in the skid plate

      I also had this sent away to Tim @Velocity Upholstery
      Time for some final interior touches



      Last thing will be sorting the bay out getting her clean and ready for spring

      Just am waiting on new bottle and cap for coolant

      but here is some updates of the bay:

      Before :


      covers




      New intake and valve cover--black and polished



      The Covers, with color matched bmc and old bottle bleh







      My fast I got at the Autoshow




      Fast up close




      Interior shots with Fast


      I put this on also for front grill and have the rear one to put on after the big wax job in the next week or so




      Still have my 5mm spacers to go on in the rear also
