I've been in the middle of winter upgrades, I shut the car down in late November and have been wrenching on it since then. I upgraded with the following:
*1970 drum brake spindle
*TCP Manual Rack and Pinion
*Baer bumpsteer trackers
*TCP complete front single adjustable coilover suspension (500lb springs)
*TCP 1-1/8" front sway bar
*TCP Panhard Bar and adjustable rear sway bar
*Maier Racing rear leaf springs
*Bilstein rear shocks
*1-1/2" lowering blocks
*Upgraded Wilwood Master Cylinder from 7/8" to 1" bore
*TCP Monte Carlo bar and shock tower braces
*Global West outer shock tower braces
I also did other stuff such as projector headlights, adjusted the hydraulic clutch, removed front parking lights, shimmed the rear end 1.5*, cut some metal that had scraped the rear tires on bumps.
Felt good to drive it again, the rack and pinion was back ordered for about 1 month, and the front suspension system for about 2.5 months. Nearly none of the install went together without a hiccup, but that's always expected. Always a problem that needs to be tackled.
I did my own alignment (2.8* caster, -1.0* camber, 3/16" toe in), and the car drove great. I drove straight to Maier Racing and dropped the car off, they'll have it about 1 week or so as they make new molds for their front fender flares on it.
I was very impressed and happy on the drive. The car never scraped or bottomed out (I only have 1.6" - 1.75" ground clearance due to my 3" exhaust and the engine being lowered). VERY happy on that.
Once I get the car back from Maier, I'll have to take measurements and then order my new wheels and tires. Another positive now that the car is moving again, I can finally put my Christmas tree and ornaments away!
