Default Finally finished

Well what was supposed to be a simple spring and shock swap turned into a front end rebuild. Had to cut out the front lower a arms due to frozen bolts. Ordered new bolts bushings and ball joints. Also replaced outer tie rod ends too. Then had a issue with the stock front springs because the lower perch isn't the same on the 90/10s and the wouldn't hold the spring under a load due to cutting a 1/2 coil on them. I know most people are against it but it doesn't due any harm when done a little bit. So I got another set of eibachs for nothing and put those in the front for now. I am going to get a set of qa1 275lb springs when I get the money. Anyway I got it done and cleaned up. The front seems to sit lower
with this set vs my Slp eibachs. Just need a alignment this week.

Car has a nice stance, and yeah the flames are awesome, there's a ton of black SSs but with a nice tasteful flame job done in a great color it really stands out.

Yeah, looks like the weather is going suck for you the next few days. A few storms possibly headed your way.
