i wonder if superlift would sell all the parts necessary to do the lift without the torsion bar drop brackets. pretty much just the crossmember and spindles and drop brackets for the diff..... i wonder...

Duders....the RCD bars are literally exhaust pipes. super light and when you hit 'em with a wrench, they sound like exhaust pipes. lol. Sch40 or even 80 is better than those RCD's.

Jake...I can't do it this time around. Maybe in a few months.

1-1/4" sch40 actually has almost 3/16" wall.

1-1/2" sch40 is pretty close to 1/4" wall.

i personally am gonna do one of those. not dom. too expensive

How about a ballpark price on the coilover conversion gear with the number of people you have now that are interested? Obviously the more people the less it will cost, but I'm sure he can give you a ballpark quote now..

shadow905,
Did you get my PM ?
If not, I'm in on both... (shock mounts and strut brackets) let me know how much, when AND oh ya the paypal account ?

Group Buy on the Shocks is a good idea but we need to vary the spring rates so people with heavier bumpers can get something a little stiffer.

Oh ya another thing, the heavy tubing on the strut bars will allow it to be used as a slider IF NECESSARY or at least catch the weight of the vehicle..
I think a good quality 1/4 wall tubing will work, although I do like the idea of the 0.120/0.250 Walled DOM Tubing.

thanks,
