Thank you so much for the advice. I will be holding off on the suspension then seeing that its gonna be a little spendy. I like the way those IROC wheels look on your car. Im not done reading your build page yet so I got some free time now. I think im only on page 6-7. Man you have put alot of work into that thing.
You like the IROC's? I just got 'em for something cheap. They do ok for rollers, but not my style. I'm going to upgrade to either Foose wheels or lately I've been scoping out Vintage Wheel Works (they are coming out with 18's soon).
I'd start with new springs if yours are original or worn, and then move on to shocks and a sway bar. Hotchkis, DSE, and some of those brands have fantastic stuff but it is expensive. Summit has some cheaper brands of sways and such if you are on a tighter budget.
Like I said before, it depends on your budget... it can be done cheap, or you can buy a fully tuned kit that is designed to work together. Not saying that cheap won't work... just be careful what components you use together. Suspension is like building an engine - you can take a stock small block and stuff a big hairy cam in there, and it runs like [email protected]
You can take expensive shocks and put it in a car with clapped out steering components and it will handle poorly.
Oh, and what condition are your bushings in?
YES! :yes: Very good point. Make sure your frame mount bushings are in good shape (the bushings that go between the body and the front frame). Going to a polyurethane mount will stiffen it up even more. The stock rubber mounts didn't last very long.
