    Updated 1/30/11!! Page 3
    Maybe I went a bit over the top with the rear suspension project so I figured why not finish it right. Took the parts to the powdercoater for a coat of the shiney stuff (silver vein with 2 coats of clear). Installing Bruce's full kit with upgraded everything, LPW cover, and Royal Purple Gear Oil. It will run on MM Sport Valved Coilovers (575 spring). I am pretty excited to see it finished and feel how rides/handles
    ENJOY!!:rockon:

    Just think how much money you could have saved if you never met me. Looks awesome, looking forward to getting mine done. At least next winter we will have a heated shop to work in. Furnace goes in on tuesday.

    You gonna do the bushing install yourself? I think I'm gonna attempt my FTBR IRS kit after I'm done with my Whipple install. Kind of intimidating I think. Also the IRS parts look great in that powdercoat!

    Yea I am doing it myself. It is pretty straight forward. Take your time. Ready the instructions and if you dont know.. Ask Bruce.. He has already answered a few stupid questions from me!!!

    Looks good. I did the same thing when I had mine out.
    The FTB install is also straight forward. You'll like how it feels afterwards.

    you could always just sand them, tape off the boots and spray some high temp paint on there.

    Full Tilt Boogie Racing is where I got them from. Bruce is on here and his name is AC427Cobra. Great guy and great products.
    Currently I am painting the half shafts hammered black. Lets see how they turn out.
