Trying to figure out the best way to get down an extra 2-3 inches in the rear. The block removal and rear shackles give me about 3". I don't want to shell out the dough for a whole new rear kit. I've reached out to a few companies looking for some info but no on es gotten back to me...frustrating.

Also on the hunt for some GM transit wheels. They're 22" steel wheels that are used to transport trucks/SUVs then are supposed to be sent back to GM or whatever. They're somewhat cheap and will give me a solid option for now.

Also, little side note. It's exciting to jump back on a forum and seeing responses to a build thread..i don't get the same feeling from IG/Facebook. Pretty pumped to be back posting.

We were JUST talking about this. I’ve never been into the FB/IG build deals. Most are for attention. Forums are for community. Totally different experience.

Re: the suspension: Have you reached out to ATS? They’re in Souderton, and do a ton of custom stuff.

Going to order the from drop shocks and rear flip kit soon. Going to ditch the rear shackles I got since I'd need to get a flip kit with what my goals are anyway. Might as well do it right the first time !

Flip Kit and front Springs are ordered. Snagged a set of OEM 22s that I'm going to stick with for the time being. Being that they're usually expensive the deal I got on these, even while beat up, was too good to say no to.



So really all that is left is get the trans squared away, fix the CEL, install all the parts and drive it.. lol

Nice find!! Sometimes you just gotta jump on the deals.

I took one of my wheels to wheel repair shop and they fixed the curb rash for $100. Always an option if you want to clean them up a bit.
