Hello all, Now that I have a 400HP/500lb.ft. Olds big block with a Level 3 Bowtie 2004R that makes my 442 actually go like a 442 should, I am finally getting around to making my '87 442 turn and stop. Though the car only has 28K miles on it, it has 30 year old springs and shocks so I would like to go in with a coil over swap first [looking at Viking] to just freshen the suspension up but also because the coil overs are so "tweakable", they will work with the factory A-arms, and still work when/if I go to aftermarket control arms later. I know that just decent new shocks and springs would be cheaper and would likely perform as well as coil overs but it is that tweak-ability I am thinking might be worth the extra coin front and rear . . . though I am less certain about the rear. Anyone running COs out back? While I have it scattered, I can bead blast my stock control arms, sway bars, bracing, and steering rods to pretty them back up and install some new and better bushings when I go back together. Out back, I would like to put new adjustable control arms [Looking at UMI but my mind is still open] to help hook this power up better. Right now, if I go more than 1/2 way to the floor out of the hole, I just sit there boiling the tires. I suspect part of that problem is literally from just not having ideal pinion angle. For now, I intend to leave my 8.5 3.73 gears alone until something breaks which helping it to hook up better might just do [??]. The car is just geared amazingly well the way it is so . . . if it ain't broke [??] Finally on the first phase, I would like to put on new spindles and rotors up front [looking at Baer SS4+] leaving the rears alone for now. I like the stock look of the SSIIIs so for now I don't intend to change that though I am running 245/60/15s all around now instead of the stock 215/65s. Later on, I will consider aftermarket A-arms, aftermarket sway bars and bracing, larger [taller] ball joints, rear brakes, etc. Does this approach make sense? Yeah, I know that's a loaded question but there is nothing about this plan that is etched in stone at the moment. Thanks a bunch . . .
