Man, we tried to have it done for my party. We were like 90% done. Close but no cigar, but imo we killed it. My guy gonna build some beauty panels for the trunk. All fab work was 100% done by my guy. When I left last night we only had the mids/highs running. I got video of the whole system running. Will upload video tomorrow. Couldn’t fit the 2-8” mids and tweeters in rear deck. So my guy built a rear console to match the front.

Home, can’t drive it. Too much weight in trunk. Suspension guy can’t get me in for a week or 2. I’m going to throw some air shocks on at home. That way I can raise the rear to drive it
stop at play-it-again sports and pick yourself up some footballs.

put those in the springs and inflate to your desired pressure. ;)

wait a min... Shawn1112 Shawn1112 i think you already got air shocks on that thing....
You are correct, but no hoses going to them so dont even know if they are good. Gonna go buy a hose kit and throw it on there and see what happens.
I gotta get it up kinda high as the body roll while turning is what I'm concerned about.

Have them, along with an anti roll bar for the rear and a bunch of other shit. I have special brackets for them in the rear that go with the anti roll bar and those need to be welded on. Just looking for a cheap fix to drive it until the suspension shop gets me in. Speaking of the suspension shop, just left there. Picked up my buddies Chevy on 28's, MFer sits perfect!

I'll double check, but after you mentioned it. I remembered seeing the lines all ghetto rigged at my engine guys shop and I told him cut the lines as I didnt think I would need them. Maybe he re-routed them and did a good job of hiding them. Either way, its a 10 min fix if I need to put new lines in.

Get under there and adjust those collars then, probably needs more spring though.
