where the coilovers ruffer ride? then the drop springs? and how different was the ride from stock springs to drop springs thanks I'm not sure what brand to get yet. my first priority, is for softest ride in a drop spring thanks

I bought just the ports and installed them myself. Overhaulengines did a DIY which got me excited enough to give it a try.

Congratulations on COTW !

Car looks great with the CCW's, the Heritage grille and the many other mods you have done.

Your COTW is well deserved.
