Looks great man!!!love the new setup,brakes are just awesome...hell of a job...
.... The front I just put in the ZQ8 bumpstops, and I trimmed off the recommended 1/4 of an inch, but it is riding pretty heavy on the bumpstop with just a 1/4 of an inch cut out.....I'm riding on about .75" of the ZQ8's now. i forget how much I cut off, but the entire top cone part has been removed. The frame just barley touches/rests on the tops of them now and there's very slight compression/bulge showing on their sides. I'm very pleased with the ride feel. Front end is not too bouncy and still stiff enough, but with good cushion to absorb road/bump shocks. I've also got bilstein sport shocks and slightly cut ST springs. Front sits at 25.5" to apex of wheel well lip. i might switch over to drop spindles. We'll see.
Mike:I decided last night that I am going to get a spacer for the front between 1 inch to 1.2 inches. I would like to get it around 1 inch I think, but I would have to trim the wheel studs, not a huge deal. I will have to take a shot at the front of the car looking down and you will be able to see what I am talking about. With a 2 inch unit up there, it is too far out. I will have to see if I can make a 1 inch spacer/adapter work, as I may run into some interference with the hub and the new wheel if it is that shallow, 1.3 inch spacer I wouldn't have to trim the studs and I think that it would think that it would be ok, but I would like to have a little more wiggle room.
Got it, clear as mud right LOL
Mike,Ok you guys wanted pics.
Tobin's Hubs are art for sure
This beast is just start D*** Hardness. Kept up the work MIKEWell here you go, I had to set it on the ground just so you guys could see LOL, well ok I wanted to as well
Still need to get the right spacers for the front at least, the rears are close, but I maybe bring them in .2-.3 of an inch, front definitely needs .7 to .8 taken out of them.
Mind the mess, so much going on at once, my shop is a pig sty, but oh well. I will shoot more when I get it outside and stuff, but it isn't running at the moment and I think that I have to bleed the brakes one more time, there is a little moosh is the pedal still, I will get it, parking brakes work like a champ.
There you go more later.
