What did you do to your Caprice today?

Alright. I've seen this type of thread as a sticky on other forums basically just there to make small talk about small upgrades, customizations, or whathaveyou. I'll start it off and we'll see where it goes.

This weekend I managed, with the help of a Hoosier INC brother (BuiltBySparky on here) swapping all of my stock springs and shocks for stock SS springs and Monroe HD shocks. All in all, the swap wasn't too bad. I'm definitely loving the less "floaty" ride. The SS springs were a great choice because they still maintain a very nice, yet controlled ride.

-97 Grand Cherokee TSi - 4" IRO lift, OEM skids/hooks/hitch, sliders, 31s, rear locker, system, tint, cloth, clear corners, Magnaflow stuff
