Im about to put 08+ shocks struts under it complete with new strut mounts and steering rack spacers(alignment after). mainly because I just put new tires on it and I think im going to be keeping the car for a while now so I want it to ride like a damn Caddy......

Its on B&G springs, I like these more than the Eibachs that were under it when I bought it. The B&G's ride a hell of a lot softer then the bricks that were under it.

However, the ass-end is a lil lower then the front and STILL hits the bumpstops on larger ditches in the road. So i thought of a solution.

BIG ASS WASHERS!

4" inch ones to be exact, the ID is 2"

Rides alot better even on worn out shocks/struts!

Bought them at Fastenal for $25 for 8 and the car could use a few more to bring the ride height up a bit more, but really i wanted more space between the stops.

I put 3 on the top and one on the bottom, i dont think it would really matter where they go...4 total was prolly around 3/4" more clearence.

Ill get some height pics tomorrow!

I was going to put the TC shocks on my rears too. Was going to do Koni yellows but TC shocks are a better price.
