I would do it all at once bud. I like that your suspension is getting all done before serious motor mods go in. I had a dual point for the longest but had a super good suspension and I was losing people in the canyon runs all the time

How are the bushings?  Does that set of lca's seem like they are constructed well?   I saw them on eBay for about $80 shipped.   I bought a set of BWR polished ones for $160 and these seem pretty similar for half the cost.  Interested in hearing how much you like these.

well did some more work, switched out rear springs for lil more stiffer one, not sure on ride yet only drove once.

but heres how she sits now without the springs settled an almost maxed on lowering sleeve



might switch springs back if i dont like it, only for more low tho.

but this is scaring me from slamming it lol
