Pedders XA Coilovers Installed/some pics

My weekend project, first off I was making sure I had the right spots on the frame to raise the car on jacks, do your research before hand to make it safe. So I went with front first and rears last, get a good knee pad, but if you have a lift this would be so much easier. Took me a good day, I worked half on Sat and half on Sunday. I'm 50 year old but in decent shape and this still kick my ass because of the time spent on the floor. Anyway here are some pics.

Before,

I'm @ 1 inch in back and 1 1/4 up front. I had the alignment and seated it last week and I'm going to put about 1000 miles on the car and lower it again.

Have you had any sway bar interference with the chassis? Or are you using the stock sways?

No sway bar interference at all with the stock ones, I will get the Pedders sways on sometime this winter.
