I'm in on the group buy for the coilovers too! Are the springs going to be Eibach or Hypercoils? I assume Eibach since that is what ORW sells. Just waiting on a few more details.

That's why I'm (hopefully) getting the brackets with the intention of picking up the coilover's later on down the road.

ok so to confirm. I should use the Fox 2.0 5" travel shock not the 6.5 because I am not superlifted just spindle Correct? With a 10" coil?

not 100%. i dont see why that wouldnt work. i would just say youre going to have to bolt in the brackets, jack up the lower control arm to max uptravel and measure from eyelet to eyelet. then do the same for full droop and measure.

PM shadow905 with your intent to buy the shocks.

BUT guys remember this is a group buy as shadow905 has mentioned and requires a certain number of people buying to get the price.

Your PM/commitment is a bond to buy through him.

Thanks for listening...

well with the Fabtech you can actually run the stock shock size. I never had to change shocks. So the math makes sense to me. Any one know the stock ext and collapsed length?

your coilover shock will be shorter than the stock shock length. the brackets make it like that.

Im starting to take orders. Those who have pm'ed me, ive already pmed you back or i am working on it. I will take orders until next friday(August 21st). After that, I will not take any more orders for this time. If you would like to place an order then just pm me...


Also, for the coilover orders. listen carefully. We NEED at least 5 people in order to get that special price. Nick is giving out a smokin deal on these things and he is going to give whatever spring rate you want and even do a custom valving for you the first time for FREE! Pretty awesome deal if you ask me. Anyway, if you are interested, pm me all your information. I am going to take everyone who wants to be in the group buy, and pass the names, addresses, and contact info over to Nick. He will then contact you, you will pay him, and he will get them to you hopefully about the same time as you get the brackets from me.

If there are any question dont hesitate to ask.

In for the brackets... PM already sent.

However, I'll have to pass on the coilovers (more then likely). Not really sure where I want my ride height (aka length) or what I need for travel (not much) or what rate I'm supposed to go at. In talking with D (who recently switched to coilovers) he went with 450 Spring Rate which is much less stiff then you lifted guys. I have to do some investigation first. So if I can get that done before the 21st I'll possibly put in an order. Haha... real solid commitment I know.

Damn, if I knew what the hell to do with that jigsaw puzzel of metal I would be down, but I don't have a damn clue about that.

Anyone near Vegas want to install this for me and teach me what the hell it all does? I might be down to get on this group buy then...

If you have been thinking on it, NOW is the time to buy.

Good price on the Coil-Over Setup... Shocks and Springs.

BUT the biggy is the brackets, you will not find them at a lower price.

i think like 2 or 3 no superlifted guys have placed orders for the brackets. not for the coilovers. not entirely sure what coilover they will need.
