Got some stuff for spring...

I picked up some new parts to put on the 88TC in the spring. Always wanted some Konis so I got some of their STR.T's for a 94-04 GT, some MM Thunderbird specific caster camber plates, and some MM Thunderbird lower control arms with adjustable spring perches. After comparing these and the CHE's online, I like the fact that the spring adjusters go all the way through these as opposed to the CHE's, These also have zerk fittings which I like. I can say, just by feel and workmanship, these are beautiful pieces and I am glad I spent the extra to get these from Maximum Motorsports. Looking forward to spring already to get this stuff on.

the caster camber plates alone have been one of my best investments.
this made my sn95 suspension conversion in 2011 so much better. having the car aligned has been nothing but smooth and my alignment guys love it.
im interested to know how the Konis work out for you. i have some KYBs in mine and they are decent.

I had some of the KYB's in the front this past summer, but took them out asĀ  I did not like the feel of them. They were way too floaty compared to the PRC's on firm setting. I did cut half a coil out of the front springs, but that shouldn't make too much of a difference in the ride. Took out the KYB's and put the PRC's back in and the ride firmed up, so from what I've read on the Koni's these are their non adjustable street shocks. Which to me is great as I do not want to be messing with adjustments, especially double adjustable shocks. When these go in in the spring I will post up a report on how they feel.
