Regards BobI hope so after 50 or so years working on hot cars and at age almost 70 (going on 21 ).
I have worked for many race teams and speedway shops and owned and operated my own until I got cancer 8 years ago which almost killed me.
Now I take it easy (doctors orders) but still keep my hand in with helping anyone who needs it.
Passionate about cars, motorbikes, drag trucks, and HOT women ( not necessarily in that order
Regards Bob ...

The way to go is expensive but first kings 6 leaf gt type springs set to same height as fronts, (assuming fronts are lowered), Whiteline front and rear bars (preferably adjustable) Bilstein sports shocks (adjustable), a Watts linkage setup (fron latermodel falcon).
Then modify front upper wishbone rail pivot positions by 1" (25mm to you younguns ).
Not a great fan of lowering blocks as I have seen them come loose and RTA don't really approve .
Hope this helps a little, ok to transfer to suspension forum if you would like just let me know how you like the ideas Bob

Actually the ride is great, the Bilsteins see to that the bars keep it flat around corners but don't make the ride rough :D

XY's need 8" rims front and if you want to get serious 9.5 or 10" on the back with DECENT TYRES :roll: :D

So what does this mean Bobie???

How much rooting around is that??? Sounds too hard :shock: :shock: :shock:

What did you find the best size anti roll bars???

Dont know if I would bother with the Watt link setup for the couple track days a year...

vik...once again,sounds too hard :x :x :x
