Maybe it's because the front end is fresh on the car...but god damn is the steering light now...plus the lightened front end probably helps a bit.
I FINALLY replaced the wastegate actuator on my car so NOW I have boost control again! OF course I take the mofo to breakfast this morning and the starter quit working. I just popped the clutch and off I went! Going to upgrade to a gear reduction now.
I managed to get my hands on an 8.8 TC rear end so that will be going into the car once I swap gears and 5 lug it. During the time I 5 lug it, ill be swapping to cobra brakes I believe. If money looks good im hoping to finish that up before the summer comes back.
I have an 88, so my results will be a bit different, but I'm using Maximum Motorsports control arms in the rear. Even with height adjusters all the way down, they will raise the car an inch or so. When I first put the BMR rear springs on, I had the adjusters all the way down and the rear was slammed. Tires tucking. It took a good bit of adjusting to get the height where I wanted it.
How do you like the BMR control arms so far? I already have Granatelli garbage on mine, but when it's time to go with a tall ball joint, I was looking to go with BMR's adjustables with the tall ball joint. I have some BMR products on my Trans Am, but I get paranoid about the control arms.
I don't have a complete opinion on the arms yet, I am going to get the car aligned and put some miles on it and go from there! I did end up putting the rear springs on the car and it doesn't sit too low in the rear, Looks decent!
The car is back on the ground! And of course the battery is completely flat
So new steering rack, tierods, bmr suspension control arms with bushings and ball joints, h&r lowering springs not running them on the rear because I've heard the birds like to sag in the rear... however I should put them on to see how bad it really is and if needed I'll get the adjustable rlca.
Gonna drive it around and hopefully get to serpentine belt swapping it so I can have AC.
I did this a few weeks ago...either way, after I got the car running I could smell something electrical burning....turns out the stock fan controller pooped out. Took out the old fan and threw it in the trash and I wired up the spare volvo fan I had sitting around. Perhaps my scatter brain wire schematic will make some sense too. When I get the A/C going ill add another relay to power on the High speed side of the fan.
