Drumroll..........

As you can see I need to adjust one side to match the other. Driver side sits lower.. Not sure if I’d rather raise it to match the passenger side or lower the passenger side it to match the driver side...
Tongue twister 😬

Looks good, I kind of feel some black wheel well trim would add to the look.

Decent enough weather to clean her up and figure out my window and sunroof situation.. Driver window and moonroof seem to work when I send power to them but I think passenger window motor is fried. Rode around with the roof open Today. I’m sure this roof hasn’t been opened it 8+ years

And just like that..... I sold the zq8s.. Finally got around to swapping out he front coils. I went from 400# to 550# springs hoping to stiffing the ride up a bit. Also have a sway bar that I may add down the road.

Car is adjusted all the way down with these 550s. They definitely lifted the car a bit. I swapped some belltech 1” coils onto the rear while I was at it. Haven’t had a chance to test the suspension changes out because of a fuel issue I’ve been fighting. Hopefully have the parts in this week to try to take care of that.

Excellent build. Done within a reasonable budget and nothing to extravagant. Love it. Looking forward to your choice of wheels.

Continuing to slowly go through the fuel system. Swapped to a Holley blue a friend of mine had to see if the surging issue continues. Created a heat shield to see it it helps also.
