Had a very nice call with Ramey over at UMI, we spec'd out the rear coil overs along with rear arms. For the front he recommended going with the speedtech chicane brackets and then spec out shocks later on. I have read through the instructions for these brackets and it seems pretty straight forward, anyone have some experience with them?

Well boys I just got off the phone with UMI Sales and placed my order. Santa will be delivering the following:

Adjustable upper arms with tall ball joints
Coil over only lower arms
Front sway bar
Heavy duty bump steer kit
Adjustable roto upper rear arms
Poly/roto lower rear arms
Viking coil overs for the rear
Thrust bearings
All new hardware front and rear
Springs for the front coil overs


Once I get everything mocked up with the speed tech chicane mounts I will get measurements for what front shock length I need.

Should be a nice little project to make this thing handle a little bit better

You're in a few places Ramey.. ;)

He helped me out and hooked me up with the UMI rear coils for my SS, it's dropped a hair since I've been driving it.

UMI was the source I used for the upper brace that bolts to the upper shock mounting holes and which bridges between my rear spring pockets and stiffens up the rear crossmember in that location.
