GC coilover conversion - Pics

Finally getting my coil-over setup on the front. I have 475lb springs, Billy HD with shortened internal bumps, 5lb take-up springs and custom aluminum backing plates. I cleaned and coated the strut housings in POR15.

I'm installing tomorrow, I'm mounting with the adjusters in the middle to see where she sits, I can adjust 1.5" either way.

Oh and the last pic is of the 2 tools I made for about $6. One is for the collar/cap on the strut insert, and the other is for holding the top nut at the strut mount, it allows an allen key socket to pass through the top.

Later guys.

I'll post pics when it's done.

Performance one step at a time.
