I am lowering my 92 RM wagon, and want it to be low, but want it to ride pretty good. What should I use?
3-3.5" in the front and 3" sprint springs in the rear (something like that).Originally posted by fchava:
So you put drop spindles and ss springs in the front? How much drop did you end up with? About 3"??? What do you have in the rear??
I wish that was my wagon. Mine will be like the one in my signature. I am currently building my Sonoma right now also in my signature. I know everything about bags so I can answer any questions or concerns you may have. Basically what you will need to bag it would be a bag kit (bags, fittings, lines, compressors, valves, switches and tanks) The options are unlimited. You can save money and run manual valves but I would recommend using eight electric valves. it will be faster and you will have FBSS. Once you get your kit you will need some upper and lower mounting brackets for the bags. I can make them for you. I have made a few sets already. They make your kit pretty much bolt in. You will need to notch the rear frame for it to lay down like the one above. Check out www.gravity-werx.com for bag kits. Good luck. Oh, and if you want to see more of that wagon go to www.streetsourcemag.com and look in the owners profiles for caprice wagons.Originally posted by woodywagon:
jasonwagon, I'd love to bag it. Do you know about how much it costs or where to get the bags? If that's your green wagon, it's one bad ass car!! I'll trade ya....lol
For sure! You can come out anytime. I do all my work myself so my truck and the wagon will always be here.Originally posted by woodywagon:
cool thanks for the info... I see you are from Lebanon.. I am from the Greenville area. pretty close to you, so I might have to take you up on the help....
Thanks, spindles ride smoother close to stock, but the SS springs make it about a inch lower and get rid of the floaty wagon ride. The main reason I switched was because I was eating up tires every 12-14k miles (due to the neg camber). It also seemed that the sprint springs went flat and started to bounce a lot.Originally posted by drunkinmonk:
Klez, I love your wagon! So let me get this right, you had sprint then you switched to drop spindles and ss springs? How do they compare? Why did you switch to drop spindles and SS springs? I was going to get sprint springs for mine but I already have SS springs from my SS so why not save them and use them on the wagon. How much and where did you get your drop spindles? Was it easy to install? Thanks
