    Hey guys been a while since I have posted and I noticed it is a little slow in the burb forum lately so I thought I would give an update on my k30 project.
    As of right now I got a bare chassis again and a body on a diffrent chassis so i will be doing the swap after some body work, then I have my new BDS 6 inch springs sitting in the garage waiting to go in, and I just placed my order for a ORD shackle flip, HD greasible front shackles and the main eye bushing for my bds springs, next pay I plan to buy the rears and then maybe a set of super shackles, I will most likely make my own steering box brace same with engine crossmember, so when i get the x over and high steer someday I will be ready for it, and I'm hoping if I can buy a set of 37 by 12.5 ssr's by the end of the summer.


    well guys I know it is long but thats whats going on with mine, oh and the dana 60 should be going in really soon too.

    So lets hear ware everyone else is with there projects

    Well I finally fixed a few annoying things on my burb; high idle, leaking transfer case adapter, broken windows . . . been collecting parts and mostly just driving it once and awhile.
    But I have some plans for this summer, building the new cargo drawer, side boxes for storage and new speakers, re-wiring my doors and then getting my axles finally built.
    I am so tired of working on my little car that I'm finally gonna get beack to my first love, da Burb!
