im not sure. seeing as how we had to cut off those brackets(didnt know i was going to have to do that), ill probably have to weld a new brackets towards the front of the LCA. its ok though. we found out that my bumpstop on the pass side wasnt even on there. haha. who knows how longs its been gone

i was gonna say there's a place for a bump stop on the front LCA drop bracket... but thats for RCD.

there's some sweet *** 4" Air bumps for sale on Texas4x4 right now you might as well go all the way pimping out your IFS before you cut it all off.

i set the coilovers at the ride height i wanted(plus a little), and made sure they were level. i got it right on the money. was kinda proud of myself for that one..

then i went cruisin. rides like a caddy. here are some pics of me back in the field by my house...








do coilovers settle any? like, after this morning or setting them will they lower any over the next couple days?

They'll probably settle a little, mine did. But those are already broke in so it shouldn't be that much.

i loved how those things rode! i really miss them.. well kinda

being that i beat the living **** out of those coils.. i don't think they should be settling too much.


do you really wanna do the SAS with leaves now? you should consider coils.

They have some brackets that mount where the t-bars were and then on the back crossmember. You'll probably have to fab something up on that back crossmember for the bars to mount to.
