I am Done! Did you all notice that my helper and I did this job in 3.5 hours? Went for a quick test ride, nothing scrubs. I also put another shim in my lower rear arm where it mounts to the chassis. I am trying to turn the right rear in toward the front of the car. When I had the alighnment checked he showed me how it pointedaway from the car. I only put a 1/8 shim. My only concern now is the rears may lean in a little. Let me sling it through a couple of hairpins and I'll check it after it settles. Notice the second from last shot...My lower control ars are still not horizonal with the road. So far i like it! I'm going to the Pub and soak my finger in some cold beer. Bill

Looks great and it will settle down a little bit more after you drive it awhile. What are you doing with that wheel spacer in the picture with the complete coilovers? I bet about now, you are very glad that you got rid of the nasty old radiator that was installed in front of the AC condenser.

Is there a difference between the front and rear spring spacers? I have original 15" wheels with 305/15 rears and 245/15 fronts and non-adjustable shocks. With the spacers out both front and back, the rear tires do not have as much clearance as the front tires and I think it looks unbalanced. I am thinking about putting the spacers back in the rears to give it a more consistent space between the tire and the quarter panel compared to the fronts. Any thoughts?
