Gary,

You're going to hate those. The car will handle too well, ride too flat in the corners, and you'll miss you constant companion - wheel hop.

What are you going to do??????

Had mine for a while now. I also run PFADT bars and the car is a freakin' gokart.

I've got a little experience installing those. The problem with them is they are too dam nice to be hidden.
I think you should send them to me for testing before putting them on your ride Gary.

Gary is a class act.

What he did not tell you is that it took FOREVER to get them. They were right in the middle of making another batch when he placed his order and we/he had to wait through every possible delay known to mankind.

Glad they finally made it Gary, It felt like your order took up permanent residence on my desktop

Tks again Bro

Peace
Chip

Shipping them like that on your recommendations is what I heard. Hey, somebody had to be the guinea pig.
