    Where are you getting the coilovers for the rear? And you have to wait to see what travel correct?

    good thread, I'' be watching your progress closely as I am still before starting my project (still buying a right car as a base) but from the beggining I want to put a 4-link suspension in the rear.

    what will be the total lenght of your trailing arms?
