This evening I installed a Hellwig 1" rear sway bar with 7/16" bolts, Belltech 5118 rear springs, and KYB shocks. The 5118's dropped it exactly 1". Just about perfect with about 1/2" of the 275/60-15s up in the fenderwell.

Hopefully this weekend I'll get the QA1 stuff on the front end and get it down where I want it. Then a picture or two.

Any updates? I drove mine this past weekend. Really ready for some good weather cruising!

Glass bumpers and spoiler getting fitted. I should have the Caddy engine in it early summer

Really looking great! Keep up the progress! I need a new starter myself. Grenaded the bendix gear last week. Great excuse for a high torque unit!
