Just came back from my sea tour on a sub and all I can think about was putting the H & R springs on the V. I also installed SS brake lines and a 160 Thermostat. V handles better and I like the new stance. The hardest part was removing the brake line clamps in the rear. :mad: Thanks for the better pics of the rear spacers. helped a lot.

It took me about 6 hours to do everything. The springs were easy. the brake lines were a pita cause of the clips in the rear. Just the springs 3 hrs.

Feels the same so far. I did not get a chance to really get on it to see. I figured down here in south Georgia it's Africa HOT all the time. The rubber break lines will get spongy in this heat. Or I could have just wasted $100 bucks. Go figure
