Today I finally made a coilover purchase. I figure these will hold me over until I move up to JRZ or AST/Motons. Upgrading from 155,000 mile L suspension :lol:

KW RCE Tarmac 2 coilovers w/group N top mounts

Since the spring rates are really low that come with them, I went ahead and bought Hyperco 400/380 springs from Rokkit (Mike) as well.

Made a ton of progress this weekend thanks to the help of friends. Hoping to have it running in 2-3 weeks *fingers crossed*

Still have to install the front coilovers, re-install the heater core, customize the radiator hoses, and other small things.
