    Mike and I have got the front axle done last Saturday, including the cut and turn. Now it all just needs to be removed primed/painted. The Harrop Elocker is in the 3rd member now and ready for install. Then it’s installing the new chromoly axle shaft and rebuilding the knuckles.
    This Saturday we plan on starting the rear 80s axle install with the Chevy 63 springs. If any of ya want to join or even just drop by just let me know. We have a ton of tools at the shop and a forklift.

    Yea I haven’t decided yet either. I know what I would love to have, King Shocks with remote reservoirs. However what I am leaning towards, because my budget is nowhere near that, is bilsteins.

    Well if you want top of the line you have to convert to a 3-link setup with coil-overs up front and a triangulated 4-link with coil-overs in the rear.....
