We are in another OPTIMA Challenge Event. Our results on the road course were good. The track was crowded making it hard to get clean runs. If you were at the front of the starting group you had a good chance at laying down a good time. Starting in the pack you were wasting tires and fuel. The L/28 with Danny Popp behind the wheel laid down an amazing time with an incredible effort. I'll post a video when I have a better connection. Bruce Raymond's Camaro driven by TJ Bain ran well. There wasn't another late model Muscle Car close to them. Tomorrow we run the AC.

We all know if you ain't break'n you ain't race'n. We did and could not find a part on the West side of the state on Saturday. I called Becky. Becky called Joe. Joe called Gerry. They opened the store at about 6. Then Joe and Becky stated driving West. I started driving East. We met in the middle. I can't imagine ANYONE doing this except The RoDgers crew.
Right there that is why I will drive 4 1/2 hours to have my Pedders installed at Rodgers. Totally willing to help at all times and great people.

Ok not to change the subject but have a question about coilovers.......

When coilovers are installed will the distance from the bottom of the coilover to the nut that goes up to the spring be the same distance on each side....For example if I bottom out the coilover on both sides then raise one side up 2" will the other side be the same 2"?

In theory, yes. However, there are differences in ride height (usually) at all 4 corners. You can do that and then measure from the fender lip to the bottom of the wheel on each side (rear left vs. rear right, same up front) and see what the difference is side to side and then adjust so it's level.

That answer it?

Yepper......I did that but just looks funny from the rear to see one jacked up higher than the other...Didn't know if the springs could be different or if one had a problem or not.

I set mine the same, and it turned out nearly perfect... Within 1-2 mm difference. Kinda ignored the stock measurements, and just went for it. I think I might of gotten lucky though. Lol

I did the same. Set the preload and lower perch the same

Ride height ended up being damn near perfect left to right.

I did write down the measurements between the lock rings etc for reference. I put them in a very safe place.... That I can no longer find.
