I pretty much completed the front of my SPOA but I ran into a few problems (as usual for me) I used a 3 inch drop pitman arm (it's all I had) and when I turn to the right the drag link hits the leaf springs, it seems pretty bad. I also noticed on the pitman arm the damn thing is too wide for my bracket to put my bolts through for my steering damper.
I also had 2 inch longer shocks from my SPUA Calmini S/R and when I flipped my spring plates my shocks will JUST fit on, but they have no up travel at all, so I'll need some shock relocation.
My Geo Metro brake hoses ($10.00 a set [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]) worked perfect, not sure how the back hooks up exactly do I need a coupler? or are they just longer like the front?
Needless to say I like how the front looks compared to the back, I'll start on the back tomorrow. I'm tired and I feel beat up from cranking on that thing all day. I hope tomorrow goes better.
I know it's onl;y 4.5 inches but man that thing looks HUGE compared to what it was!
