Looks good. How does she ride now?

racer3031 11-14-2009 05:04 PM

I do feel an improvement in handling, also i plan on adding the sway bars can't get to carried away this close to xmas. i did trim the bump stops in the front but i didnt read all the instructions did'nt trim the rear and i feel the bucking someone else had talked about so i'll have to go back in and trim the rear

Looks great , did you measure the drop? Do you have pics of the rear? How about an alignment, was it necessary?
Thanks

Sorry about the pic question I didn't pan right (duh!)

Any special tools needed for install?

tradosaurus 11-15-2009 11:37 AM

Costs?

racer3031 11-15-2009 12:54 PM

we used a spring strut machine to compress stock springs to remove there is no tension on the pfadt springs when reinstalling. just make sure the springs are lined up in the pocket when putting the weight of the car back on them

$400.00 springs and install, friend has a lift makes it much easier could be done on stands

Very nice, looks good!!

Now that is the perfect drop! So pfadt's instructions say to trim both bumpstops? How much does it say to cut off?

racer3031 11-30-2009 03:20 PM

i think it was 1 inch, but it does sit nice now.

Yellow does not work on all cars, but it sure looks great on a Camaro!
