    Very nice ride. I'm not too sure about the rear valance though, it looks like it flares out a bit too much. How are the Konis treating you? I'm lookin into getting some single adjustable myself.

    Single adjustable Koni's are great, matter of fact they're better in the rears than the DA's, apparently the rear SA's are built a bit beefier than the rear DA's.

    Looks like my rear DA's are blowing out they have issues like that.

    I'm going to replace my rear DA's with the SA's thru Sam Strano.

    Front DA's are hunky-dory, no issues there whatsoever.

    Are Konis lifetime waranteed? What do you have the valving adjusted to? I also was considering bilsteins, I have a set of the HD struts on my VW. I've had them on the car for about 3years now with race springs, It handles like a go kart, but real real smooth when it comes to the neglected roads (which around me there are plenty). They still have the same ride as when they were brand new.

    how about the adj. panhard bar, did that help out? My SS is dropped about 1.5in front and back with the eibachs and I know the rear axle has to out of center. There is so many chasis/suspension mods available for these cars I dont know where to start. Panhard bar, or subframe conectors are next. Or torque arm, to much to think about.

    Koni's are lifetime warranted, I just don't want to have my car on blocks for a few weeks and then wait for Koni to fix them and send them back...Apparently Koni charges to rebuild, so lifetime warranty my ass.

    Anyway stories about the rear DA's blowing out is common, I'd rather just get the SA's for the rear and call it a day.

    If your car is lowered, the Bilstein HD's are not ideal because they were designed for Camaro's with factory springs. You'd be better off calling Sam Strano, tell him what kind of springs you bought, he can get Bilsteins for you and revalve them to match your spring settings and THEN you'll be rockin

    Adj. phb did the trick.

    Get the phb first, then go for the shocks, and while you're at it, sounds like you want better traction since you brought up the torque arm...What about lower control brackets? Since your car is lowered your LCA'a are not at the right angle anymore, so LCA brackets will allow your LCA's to be put at the correct angle.

    Right on dude, thanks alot. yeah i guess thats what the sports are for, the shortened shock body. I guess LGmotorsports can also get custom valving done also.

    yes, I have the lca relocation brackets at home I need to throw them in, I was going to get all the rear traction sh*t then install them all at one time while its ripped apart. I also have 3.73 I need to have installed - I'm not going to do that, I wouldn't want to mess the shimming and all that up.
