Ok I guess it has been a while since I put anything up about this..I did get the brakes done..I replaced the rear hoses..I started it without the exhaust on last weekend..kinda fun at 12 am..beer talk..so I have the exhaust connection to use to put it on..just been hot and busy around here to get that part done..I do need some alignment shims for the rear still also..only need a few and have been um..procrastinating on buying a whole set..oh well..it is what is is..

Rich...Did you replace the rear spring? I think I have to replace mine, bottoms out on some big bumps...shocks look relatively new. Any recommendations Question

Barry..I really hope that I have it done by then..I do enjoy it in the garage though..Dan I did not replace the spring or shocks ..they were already done and one of the few parts I didn't replace or rebuild..shock wise the stock ones work fine..spring wise its a different story..tons of options there from mono spring to tight leaf springs..once again that will be your preference on what and how you want the car to feel like and do..I did replace the spring bolts and bushings to correct the former bubba work he did..figure out what you want to do with the car and I can help find a good direction.

Rich
