First impressions of the GV 2.5\" lift kit

Got to hurry, doctor's and all today.

BUT, I opened the boxes for the new Calmini 2.5" lift for my GV. Here's my impressions.

First were the A-arms. Friggin' beef. Very heavy and overdone with gussets and reinforcements. All the poly bushings were already installed. Nice.

Next came the Springs. Well, they look like springs, but powerdcoated Calmini blue.

Shocks were soft valved, included boots and poly bushings. Valving appears to be the same as the ones on the 5" S/R which are the same as DT3000's, when compared side by side.

Struts. Yup, they're blue too. Made in England. That's all I know right know.

Next came lots of little parts, all powdercoated. The coating is nice, especially if you live in the rust belt.

Then out popped a couple of ball joints. Apprear to be SGP. That's cool. Better than NAPA crap.

Then I pulled out a couple of little boxes. They said, "MOOG Suspension". "MOOG?", I said. MOOG suspension parts, like, kick ass. That's what Yankee Bob has for his GTO! I thought that was cool. Good quality.

And here was the biggest surprise. Readable directions with clear pictures. As for how concise they are, I'll find out after installation.

Stay tuned...

Thats Great Tim, No surprise here. I always have to spend a few minutes wiping my drool off when ever I get parts from them. Absolutely excellent work. Be sure and post pics when you get it installed.
