I guess I've been lucky so far with the rust, even my stock manifolds that give most people problems on the 3.8, gave me none, hell they where barley hand tight.

Glad to hear that. I'm going for the normal NT05. Not the NT05R's. I'm more into taking turns then just straight line.

Anyone ever dealt with Founders Performance? Im looking at their LCAs and PHB Package.
http://www.foundersperformance.com/p...nhard-Bar.html
I thought $130 was a pretty good price. Should I get the hardware or just use the stock nuts and bolts?

Stock hardware should be fine. Just do a good visual inspection before re-using the parts.
There was a thread on LS1tech about founders and they got called out on their welds. Well, whoever it was that was calling them out, must have been some nutswinger from another company. I check out their welds from guys here locally and the guy from Founders PM'd me a cutout of their welds and they are good to go. I plan on buying some parts from them in the future.

My panhard rod is form founders, no problem with it. But my LCA's are J&M 3 piece polly sperical ball bushing which allows for movement where the ovthers won't.

Exactly. Their profit margin can't be very large, but if you move things in bulk, you don't need a big profit margin to make money. I'll buy their STB, PHB and LCA's when I decide to pull the trigger. First, tires and then shocks (Bilsteins, here I came).
