    Suspension Upgrades

    The roll bar will pretty much finish the rear end modifications....tie it together anyway...I launch like a big dog now....in the rear I have all poly bushings....pedders drag springs...harrop cover and poly mount...Koni Adjustables.....she sticks well on Nitto's.....now time for the front end....looking at sub frame poly bushings also....anybody using the Pedders adjustable struts upfront? The bushings will all get changed out....I'm curious of the front coil over struts Pedders pimps.....are they worth it over the stock struts after all the bushings have been changed out? Seems to me the stock bushings are shit and the poly bushings would add a ton of "stiffness"......

    That is a good kit and will make a big handling improvement. But I like the coilovers because 60mm (2.5") springs allow the use of 9" wheels and 275 tires on the front. It also gets rid of OEM upper seat pillow and related hardware and lets you easily adjust camber.

    Frt STRUTS

    The Pedders struts are top quality units. In the past, I have used them for swaybars, shocks, springs and struts & am very happy with all of them.

    Also, and I am uncertain about the Pedders, some coilovers let you adjust suspension height without affecting rebound.
