No, I kept the quad shocks. I drove quite a while this weekend to test it out and I don't have any rubbing. I'm putting on EBC brakes and tubular A-arms right now

Been following this thread and some others for a bit, noticed that the 10th anniversary wheels are on Kuch’s wish list? I got ‘em. I need to mount them up and get them on the car. I’m also in New England, FWIW. I’d love to see/hear your solution to the lowering issue. I think I’m headed in the exact same direction. I’ll post pics once I get over the rainy lazies.

Rain,
did you get the staggered size wheels or the same front and back? I would love to see them on your car as they are still one of my favorite rims for these cars. thanks

Staggered. I’m fairly certain the 17x9 w/ 275/40 series is going to fit with the tire even with the fender. Running 17x8 w/ 255/40 up front on the Anthracite kit from LMR.

Got pics of that big Galaxie? She sounds pretty tough.

Has anyone tried 03/04 Mach 1 springs? I found a low mile used set for a reasonable price and they're on the way now. 600# front and 250# rear, both linear rates. The rear is the same as the stock springs so I'm not sure if they'll be a little too light with the stiffer fronts but we'll see how it goes.
