Finally lowering blackedout

Tomorrow I'm finally lowering blackedout. It has all stock suspension, but I'm getting it one check at a time... I have the steeda ball joints and they have improved steering tremendously. Next I'll get tokico shocks and struts. Will it hurt to lower now and within four weeks have shocks and struts and caster plates?

It won't hurt to lower it now , the ride may be a bit bumpy and sloppy because of the stock struts and shocks, I would wait till you have all the parts to do it all at once or you will be doing twice the work

Nice! Give it a week or two for the springs to fully settle. Did you keep the isos? Ok so tell me again... This is just the springs or with the Tokicos?

American muscle had isolators. My rear isolators were eaten up and gone, so I got some for the front and rear.
Without the tokico shocks and struts.

Thanks to all. This had to be at least a 3 hour job. The rear is easy and fast, use your jack stands and some solid bricks. Use a small level block to lift with your jack. Anyone can do it...

It's lowered 2" 1/4 front and 1.6" in rear... I didn't use the the spacers that came with the steeda balljoints. The tokico d adjustable shocks and struts will come in soon also caster chambers, and bumpsteers
