    Got my new Engage long travel enstalled by Engage this week and love it. King 8" stroke coilovers with reservoir, they make the ride like and old caddy until you get down to business. All heim joints, boxed lca's. Stock spindle for know but the back is slowing me down anyways. Here are a few pics.





    sorry for this one being sideways, i am too lazy to fix.:D

    I would like to thank Hassim at Engage for busting his ass to get it done.:thumbsup:

    Looks great! How much travel is expected from that kit?

    Looks like you're still running the stock bumpstops. Any plans on swapping them out for some air bumps to soften the landings? It'll help tremendously, especially if you don't have a set of bypass shocks firming up the dampening when things get really compressed.

    Since I know there's no way you could possibly leave it stock at this point, what's the plan for the rear? ;)

    the stock spindle is stoping the travel on the top uniball so it touches the bump at the end of travel, i will install bumps at some point, travel with stock spindle is 14.75, with race spindle is 16. for the rear i am going to go to blitzkreig motorsports and do a 4 link. bypasses i will add when i do the rear since the rear is going to slow me down at the moment.

    4-link? Sweet! :thumbsup:

    Lots of huge changes coming the future for you! You pulling the bed?

    Save yourself the future hassle and get a racing fuel cell when you move the gas tank for the 4-link. You'll want to race it soon enough anyway. :p

    You have a timeframe for the build?
