Looks cool... why does it look like the front shocks have NO lean to them? did you make the shock tower?

It has a shock tower on it. and to properly control the arm you want the shocks as upright as possible.. These kits that have no room to mount shocks and lay them over have to use really heavy spring rates to hold the car up and they never work that great.

2nd place is the first loser!!

Were a whole lot faster than you think you are.

when he sets it down from the forklift and takes the droop out, it will have some lean to it.
