Thanks Dave!

Yeah Scott, I can't wait to see it in action either! I'm trying to make it a habit to check the 2002 forums once a day to keep my motivation going Seeing Randy's post about the DDT AutoXs really gets me going too!

Yessir, this just sits on top of the spring perch. I run into problems with either... a drop hat styled perch would loose me shock travel, but a shorter spring may coil bind sooner. I'll have to see once it's together and assess what to do. An interesting note, when I looked at the car when I did the rocker patch, I finally got to see the suspension in a loaded state without the fender on. Even with the short shock cartridge, I have maybe 1.5"-maaaybe 2ish inches of travel before bottoming out (that is tucking a 23" tall tire)... What puzzles me is how a lot of these guys run so low with stock length inserts, or even the VW Rabbit inserts which aren't substantially shorter either.
