    Finally got the rear three link with coilovers installed and driven! It definately handles differently. I also got the half doors completed.

    It has a definate amount of body roll that takes a little getting use to. The ride is ultra smooth and sucks up serious bumps well!

    Will probably invest in a rear torsion style sway bar with disconnects for highway duty.

    The coils exagerate the weight shift somewhat, it is a very managable condition, just takes learning the cause and effect of steering and acceleration inputs.

    Would you be so kind to do a write up on your coilover rear suspension. Looks pretty strait foward and alot of time put into it. Looks realy good. Bay the way you should make a kit and sell it.

    wow...that is cool. i can only imagine how nice the ride is with coils on all corners. looks like it is pretty much a bolt on modification, yes? a lot of your products are bolt on...really opens up the market and makes it nice for those of us who are still learning to weld. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    nice doors too...i recently finished mine, similar concept.
