Re: LS1/t56 swap

Re: LS1/t56 swap

I got one frame rail done and ready to go inside the passenger compartment. The other side is ready, but the car isn't cut to accept it yet. Going through the firewall, I fo...

Re: New strut - b.o.o.b.

I have bought some konis in the past that didnt extend, but to adjust them you had to compress all the way and turn the shaft. I was fairly worried, but going on 3 or so years with them and zero issues. Different application, but thought id share. Kybs did always seemed to have some good pressure be...

Re: LS1/t56 swap

I didnt get it finished tonight. I have a bit of diegrinding to do.. made my mounts to lower the rear subframe and started hogging out the holes big enough for a socket to fit since I dont feel like buying 10" bolts for a temp setup.. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v460/Alxsmt/build%20thread...

Re: LS1/t56 swap

Here is a good explanation of it. http://thecartech.com/subjects/auto_eng2/Roll_Center.htm I ended deciding to lower the rear subframe 2.5", which might be perfect, or it could need to be lowered with spacers to get it dialed in by feel once the car is going. I figure its easier to add spacers ...
