Thanks. I just installed his coilover kit, too. Everything went together super smooth, only spot I had issues with was the bolts that go up into the lower shock mount. I had to blow out the holes and run the bolt in and out a few times to clean up the threads, i think there was some media from the sand blasting before powdercoating.

Does the rack turn alot smoother? Looks like you have a coilover set-up also.

Yeah it is smooth but the main difference is the road feel and how much tighter it is compared to the old stock power steering stuff. I even had a flaming river quick ratio box and new control valve, but the rack if far better. The car drives like it is on rails. The coil over made a big difference but the rack just finishes the updates that I have done.

Swapped out my fuel sender for one from oreillys. Found out the hard way it required modification to fit... had to cut the tube an inch, change out the sock.. before I installed it, I tested the sender with my linear autometer. Finally works!

A 18" GM thermostatic clutch fan. Hey it's still a high quality fan blade. I used a clutch from a 75 350 Impala and a 1" hayden fan spacer.



And a Zray lower cross memeber. This thing fits awesome! Not only that but it clears my Canton pan. The stock cross member was hitting.

Zrays crossmember is awesome, I have one on my car. I have a Canton pan on the 351w going in, I hope it clears like yours does.

Got a new steering box from Chock and some Baer tie rods form John at Opnetracker. Roller idler is in the mail!
