      the lowering blocks are universal and can be found at almost any car parts store... ie pepboys.. kragen...autozone

      i had my camber kit done yesterday at a local garage... it cost me 190$ after the alignment and everything...

      Will a steel 4" gear puller work too? Yours is 10" and not sure if that affects the capability of the puller.

      Just for Reference, a 4" should work, I used a 6" and it worked. However, these things are dangerous and make sure you mount them tightly against your frame.

      hi, got a question, got confused after weeks of reading, planning to do 2" drop, back isn't a problem, but front confuses me, questions is simple:

      do I need to flip torsion adjuster, when only going 2" down?

      any help greatly appreciated :)

      Hey guys I got a question for the guys who have done this torsion key flip. If I flip the key and find out its lower than I want, will the adjuster screw work to raise it up some? I have everything out already because I'm rebuilding the suspension and have been painting the frame, sway bar, torsion bars, spindles, brakes and all brackets to prevent rust and making her look pretty again. Thanks in advance for any help.
