were did you get your GF springs. were they easy to install. I need to do mine!
I can't remember if it was Ebay or some web site. In any case, if you are serious, do some web searches. Again, I can't remember what I paid. All I know is that I got a good deal on these. Installation is easier than you think. Good luck.

Cool ride. And that spoiler is a nice touch. Slick roads and a LWB should make it a nice drift machine. :D

Thanks for all the comments. I think the only thing I want to do now is paint the door handles and mirrors. Oh, and can't forget to cut off the can.

Looks nice, what size tire did you end up going with?

I am going to get my SS wheels put on in about an hour.

I stuck with the original tire that came with the wheels. 255/50/20. My speed will be bumped up to 1.1 miles faster than what the speedometer is registering with this setup.

I just got back from getting mine put on. I went with the Hankook 275/45/20 and so far I like them a lot. I need to find the digi and take some pics I guess.

what do u have to do to take the old coils and replace them with the GF 2 inch rear coils. you just take the tires off and they should be able to come out? i also plan on putting new shocks when i go to do this and thats pretty easy to do

This is how I did it. Chock the front wheels. Jacked up the pumpkin. Put jack stands on each side of the frame towards the rear of the vehicle. Take out the lower bolts holding the shocks in. Slowly drop the pumpkin using the jack. Springs should be loose and almost fall right out. Now would also be a good time to replace the shocks if you plan to. Put new springs in. Jack up pumpkin. Put bolt back in on lower shock. Done. I think you may get away with not having to take the wheels off, I forget.
