Clutch, Flywheel, Pressure Plate, and Throwout bearing just shipped today. I will be taking picks while i replace everything this weekend. The clutch is a Centerforce Dual Friction clutch all in all everything shipped to my door was ~500. Pretty good deal I'd say.

Well the front suspension is a twin i-beam suspension. Seriously one of the easiest suspensions to lift. But it all depends on what you wanna do with it. Personally im going equal length because int he future its getting a 3 link rear end and im gonna race it. But if you just want a cosmetic lift then i would say go with a drop bracket lift. Cheap easy to do and it can look good if done right. But like i said its all up to what you are planning on doing with it.

Yes and no. Lol, i was planning on doing it this christmas but it will probably happen after i get the rear suspension done. Which will be next summer. So in a way yes im doing it but not as soon as i thought i was going to. As we all know stuff you plan never goes the way you want it. But for now i ride my bike everywhere saving money so i can put the suspension on.
