Exciting update:

Picked up the GC coilover kit last week:



Did the rears first. quick and easy:



Also installed new rotors and pads + did the stud conversion

Fronts take a bit more work. removed the sping and inserts, then cut the perch off



Shorten by 1 inch and weld back together:



Weld the new perch:



Painted and assembled:







Big thanks to Jamie (Aero) for the welding!

Lookin' good man! I LOVE the look of the massive rubber, sidewall included.

The welds look pretty nice on those headers, must be TIG'ed.

Oh, and one good thing about your ground clearance... you won't be needing a new motor due to a shattered oil pan any time soon. No need for a Tall Pines incident.
