Just closing the deal with the Driveshaft Shop for one of there 3.5" one piece aluminum driftshafts for Pumpkin. Stock driveshaft is definately a weak point in my opinion. I have bent more then a few sets of bolts so far.

If you don't mind, could you PM what you paid?

Definitely interested to see what you think of a one piece driveshaft. I was looking at there carbon fibre shaft but here there is exaust clearance issues with the aluminum one so the carbon one would be even worse.....

BMR has a sale on now. Time to get those end links for my sway bars. OEM parts are weak.

Well here we go with front suspension Day # 2. Time to change front springs and sway bar and re-install radius arms and stuff. Went pretty well no big hang ups. You have to kind of hold your tounge just right to get sway bar in and out.

Now that's THE shot... Nice.

Looks like the suspension is just about wrapped up.

Sounds like it's a real weather mess in the New York area. Hope you made it back home safe and sound.
