Springs installed!

This was my first time doing it, I put on C-springs and Mach1 S/S
Im so glad I did not pay somebody to do it. They
wanted $350.00, I did it by myself,with air, it took about 3 1/2 hours it was pretty easy just takes time.

It dropped pretty evenly for not cutting anything, only 1 inch all around
The ride is great I hardly notice any harsher ride, a little stiffer but real nice, just wish it was a little lower.

Anyway Tommorow my rims will be here and then Ill put up some pics.

the front wont squeek but the rear will so DO NOT remove the rear, only the top front.

How was the drive after you did the install. My suspension is real stiff but damn it handles so much better than the stock stuff. Next for me is the Panhard Bar and maybe the Evolution Motorsports Tri-Link Kit.

My c springs didnt settle one bit... dont look for yours to either, maybe in the rear which wont affect the alignment, either way wait 500 miles to be sure, but i doubt it will matter much at all.... and even with an alignment on Cs i still wore on the inside (wider tires perhaps) even though the specs said i was with in stock tolerances... which do wear on the inside.... if it wears bad just get a set of GOOD cc plates.
