    Finally getting around to working on the car. Wiring is almost complete and I finished up the install of the DSE springs in the rear. Out with the stock - in with the lowering. I like the look.

    I like the look too. What spring combination are you using? how much drop front and rear?

    I knew i wanted 2" up front but, wasn't sure in rear. Does that make her sit pretty level? Are the control arms stock geometry, do they add any to the lowering? Looks great, love the color too.

    The control arms are stock geometry. The coil over shocks give several inches of lowering so you can set the ride height to anything you want (level or whatever). The QA1 products are good.

    Slow going, but door panels are complete and glass is installed. Interior is basically finished and I like the way it has come out. A bit more wiring in the dash and in the engine compartment and the maiden voyage will be in the offing.
