i see that you found the answer for the kidneys and in regards to the shocks, the first 4 are sports that will be going on the car. The other two are HD's that were sent by mistake at first by the place i ordered from and then after a very stern email, they sent the right ones and i was left with a free set or rear shocks which i have for sale now.

Update...finally had time to get some things done..I am very pleased with how it looks right now

Picture 1: Before
Picture 2: Powdercoated rims mounted
Picture 3: New suspension freshly installed(will be lower after couple weeks when it settles) and new kidneys

Next: shadowline window trim, install new smoked fender lights, install new headlights

Looks good. Hard to tell the drop from the last pic. So shiny!

Coming along nicely.
Hopefully your front goes down a smidge more when it settles.

I just installed ne suspension and my car is tucking. It's almost a pain in the ass.It has been a while since I drove a really low car..
