    That's what I'm using. I don't even have to take the wheels off to make the adjustments.

    Thanks and yes they do. Their products are top quality. I believe you're in NorCal so stop by their shop and say hello the next time you're at Sonoma Raceway.

    I'm still on stock sway bars and use the FRPP LCA's with the poly bushings and relocation brackets. I'm still undecided if I'm going square but if I do I'll probably install a 18-20mm rear bar.

    Nope. Just reach through the wheel if you can. Please don't try it with hot brakes! I put the adjuster on the outboard facing side. A little messy since I always end up with brake dust on my forearm/wrist.

    That should improve your F/R weight balance significantly!

    Broke a valve spring on the dyno last month (long story).
    Waiting on my fully built Livernois big bore longblock. Stage 3 heads. Billet I beams. Custom and hand assembled everything. Gonna refurb the stock motor as a backup.

    Sorry to hear about the damage.

    Glad to hear the block is salvageable.

    Sounds like 505HP will be your old benchmark once the new bullet is installed.

    Which springs were you running??

    Finally did the FR3 kit with 302S bushings, 302S rear lower control arms with relocation brackets, and solid motor mounts. Also picked up some of those discontinued Hoosiers!

    Well now.... That should make a difference in performance. I enjoyed the pictures.
    I like the solid motor mounts.
    Did you have to drop the steering rack to remove that bolt?
    Also on your panhard bar, I thought that the adjuster end should be on the driver side for easy access.
    What will you be mounting those slicks on??

    Thanks!

    I'm assuming you mean the bolt holding the control arm... No, i turned the steering all the way to the opposite side. Then i loosened the boot and held it with a tie wrap. Still needed a little wiggling, but not that difficult.

    Not sure about the panhard bar.

    Sve drifts 18x10's those are all rear. Still waiting on the fronts to come in. Those are 18x9 and getting 265's
