Well the left one is the progressive rate spring (made by progress *I think I spelled it right*?), and the right one is the stock SVT spring.


The red is just eh coil spring isolator made by Energy Suspension. It was easy to put on and who wants the spring to be squishin' around on a stock rubber isolator?


Well the wife is in bed and I can focus competly on....well many different things. I think I'll wait till tomorrow to finish the front.

Well they were looking pretty beat up with some flaky spots and stuff. I didn't do much, quick wire brush, prep spray and then some paint. Much better then what they were.




I smeared grease on the inner part or the drum where the rim sits. If some of you ever found your tire stuck on with a Norse god's power, it's cause it gets stuck here. Smearin' some grease will keep the paint I just sprayed off when I wipe the excess away and let the tire come off the drum super easy. Win for me, and tip for ya'll

Paul did you finish the drop yet? And for RRH I have decided that the rules are:

1. You must be able to go up at drive way at 10mph
2. Go over a standard speedbump at a 90* angle.
3. Able to use your OE scissor jack.

My brothers girlfriend offered to even make us a RRH logo hahaha
