Re: More suspension issues !

I don't think so, are you running stock wheels/tire size?? With strano springs it shouldn't be bottoming out so something must be amiss. Adjustable LCA's are more for centering the rear end, they don't really have a measurable effect on ride height.

Re: More suspension issues !

Did you put all the associated parts back in for the springs? I've known more than 1 person who missed the rubber cap part on the front mount and/or the isolators in the back. Could also be hitting your exhaust on the panhard bar set up. If you grab the tailpipe you shouldn't be able to move the exh...

Re: Suspension advice please

Swap the springs out for the original SLP Level 2 springs and shocks and make sure you replace the mounts, bushings and isolators. That kit is based off the Level 1 suspension which is higher performance but a bit more rough around the edges. The ACTUAL original style Bilsteins (have different valvi...

Re: 2001 Formula Hawk #293 Restoration thread.

Got some of the work done for the 10 bolt. It is FAR from show quality but the intent is functionality and reducing the possibility of rust in the future. **Important safety tip for this post, with the exception of the soap wear a respirator for all of these chemical treatments and paints and do the...

Re: 2001 Formula Hawk #293 Restoration thread.

Sorry I've been so quiet on this thread for awhile. The Hawk has been hiding away most of the summer, the original 10 bolt is getting a bit sketchy so I don't take it far. I also moved which has limited my ability to get rolling on the Axle rebuild at the shop. Might get some stuff done this weekend...

DO NOT open the radiator cap with a hot engine and make sure you use Dexcool (red) or universal (yellow) coolant. Don't mix gr...
