sex! *WW* whoa!

edit - do none of you guys like to talk about mods and tech? at least i got you n00bs in here. >:O
------------
installed 4cyl front springs today
------------
the ride height is slightly (1/8"?) higher than my c springs with me in it. the c's only compress about 1/8"-1/4" with driver whereas the 4cyl's compress 1/2-5/8"... or more than one fat finger's worth.

the front now likes to lift up more. even with my street tires it raises up more than it did previously with the 6cyl's. and a lot more than the c's.

for you v8 guys, you already know this stuff, but anyone going drag on their daily driver, damn, these are a good cheap mod. total cost: 10$! and it still rides the same or with no noticeable difference.

hmmm... with my 4.10's, slicks, and my new suspension (lca's/springs)... i wonder how close i can come to letting the suspension all the way out, and maybe with some juice get that wheel off the ground. :D

Hey Austin if in the search for performance one of your objectives is to lift the front end off the ground you better think about getting battle boxes or torque boxes before you rip the control arms from the chassis. I know people a few people who have unfortunately done this.

i'm a looong way from worrying about my tq boxes! besides, a properly tuned suspension alleviates a lot of the possible damage you can do to them. if and when i ever get the twinscrew blower on the hope-to-be-built 3.8, /then/ i'd weld some battle boxes on. actually, i'm going to just weld the tq boxes completely on because mine are stitch welded right now. that should be good for a little extra strength.
