    yes you can drive down or i can send you a kit and any local welder can get it installed for you. I can even bend up some shock hoops for you too. The welder just burns them in place and you good to go.

    Here's some updated pictures of the kit I installed. I went with the 12" 2.5 triple bypass, a 10" 2.5 dual rate coilover to be able to fit it under the brake booster, and last but not least, a 2.0 bump stop which I shortened to 3".
