FOA has the damping duties covered while a Gen Right Anti-Sway Bar keeps the gangsta lean in check.

When it comes time to shut this party down in a hurry, rear discs are gonna have it handled. For now it is keeping the tested and proven 258ci, but there is a lot of talk about a possible LS engine or some kinda EFI V8.

The rear Gen Right corners are fitted while the sliders and high lines are waiting patiently in the corner.

Once all of the suspension clearances are double checked, the body will get pulled and sent out for paint. Don't worry, we'll keep the pics coming.

Ok, I just have to ask.  With all the money he's spending on this, why not a D60 up front?
