    Well i got my invoice form strano, Kmember is offically on its way. shuold be here in about 9 -15 days. Now i wish i ordered it first instead of last cause now i have to weight to isntall everything for the most part to install everything Well i guess i can install a few things. GOD! somtimes i wish i was in the states so i could get my stuff faster lol

    Also, im guessing this should be a good time for new motor mount bushing lol
    Polys or the new aluminum ones umi has?
    DDon't need them...the k member is a solid mount...

    On the tire thing I think you are all confused....if good dd and wet traction is needed...then you need to get the same tire on both f and r if possible...not size either..brand and model..and if none is to be found..get some that are same brand and very close in tire character. Similar to snow tires...it is dangerous to have them only on the f or the r

    WEll with the tires deal i got a good deal on the SPTs new and then my dad got me the XS almost the same day so i didnt realy have a chance lol. But if i want to REALLY kick the track in the nutz (RR type course) then id get some XS's for the fronts. At least the XS will give me good bite for Drag racing the 295 probably will be the bigger contributing factor too

    ? realy? I thought it was designed to take the stock motor mount in its place?

    Just looked around and looks like i can use my stock clamshells and stick some polys in there.

    Some people suggest it, some people don't because you need to re-balance it. I would guess most have not rebalanced.

    I guess not. I did wonder about that. I know alot of people suggest ARP or Katech (or however its spelled) rod bolts. its an easy process, just messing and time consuming. I think ill save this one mod when im ready to dive further into the motor for mods. That will be one of my firsts when i do rockers, push rods, LS6 intake, and H/C one day and hell by that time ill be ready for an LS2

    KONI SAa in the REAR!!!!! its like putting on a new pair of shoes with silk socks on in the summer time while a hot chick gives a beer and asks would you like anything else
    Even backing out the lift bay, the bumps are absorbed SO much better. Cant wait for the fronts to get in. The shock r used but in really good shape. The fornts have maybe 5000miles on it and the rears maybe the alittle more but they cant be anymore then the stocks that had 107K on em. Yeah they were done. ALONG time ago lol. Once the fronts get here and the rest of everthing else, ill install the fronts shocks. Gonna do this methodically with all the other parts. Now just gotta learn to drive with adjustables. Not sure what i want the shocks to feel like since im used to the stock shocks. The rears are easy to adjust since they are on top of the shocks so i can do that in the cabin on the fly. I might get the knob just to make it easier later (dint come with on but hell ill take em lol)

    To what? I dont even know what i should have it at for starters. I know on the rears, clockwise is soft and Counter is firm.

    Ok I look around and found the majority of what ive seen have set the rears to full soft with maybe half to 1 turn and then 3-5 sweeps from soft on the fronts. Is that a good start for a DD? should be better then the Decrapons lol
