What about the front arm angle no a link pin is there a max angel or preferred angle ?

my shocks are 31" from eye to eye trying to figure out how tall the hoops need to be...

BORROWING THIS INFO: I think it was Rickosuave from STF was locating the position for his upper mounts. Get a large piece of cardboard and locate it approx where you want the mounts. Go to full droop and draw an arc ~30" from the lower mount. Go to full bump, measure the shock length (using the travel)at that point and draw another arc. Where the 2 lines cross would be a good place to start, then get as close to 90 degrees from the trailing arm at full compression.

Good advice. the 90' is important to keep in mind. Hard to get on the front than the rear. But if you do not have or never hit that 90' your never fully useing your shocks/coilovers

The car is looking awesome, I am glad you were the one that bought it and could make it what it deserves to be. The wheels and tires are exactly what I wanted to put on them. Nice job on the suspension. I would like to see it in person some time if that is ok.

Hey Drummond, I was looking closer at your pictures and I really dig your rear light set up. I was wondering about those bullet shaped lights, where'd you get them and how are they mounted? They look awesome!

The round tail lights on my rear bumper are pretty much the same as yours and I kinda want to run a second set for turn signals. But I need to figure out a creative way to do it (don't wanna weld tabs on etc...) and don't really wanna run another set of round lights. Thanks.

James
