I like your approach for sure !!
Pretty sure that is a composite spring.
I like the firewall braces. Those "might" clear my turbo on the pass side. I had to take off the PTFB braces due to the turbo and it's plumbing taking up so much room. I like the braces as they did seem to help a lot.
Are you using the tall ball joints on that system?
Hopefully I can answer all your questions here. Yes, that rear brace is for a Watts Link. Those are composite leafs outfitted with our Roto-Joints and yes they have been relocated slightly.
We have been chipping away at the car among other projects. Right now it's a lot of the boring/tedious things like plumbing and wiring. Crucial but not very exciting to show! However we did get the front Wilwood brakes mounted up. We also wanted to see how the new Forgeline wheels looked, so we mounted up one of those with a 315 series BFG Rival tire. A lot of tire but should help us maintain traction.
Few more pics of the wheel/tire combo.
Whoa, this read has been very informative, thank-you! 6-7 years ago I did my LS conversion along with a bunch of other work, there wasn’t a fraction of the components available as currently. One item I have been delaying is the roll cage, haven’t seen an aftermarket that appears to follow the body as your appears, will the cage components be available for purchase?
Thanks and keep posting
Really liking those firewall braces
[QUOTE="UMI Performance, post: 3534751, member: We prepped a few plates for the cage to sit on as well.
Those are the best roll bar floor plates I've ever seen!!
You guys should sell those things.
I can guarantee I'd be buying!
#1. What kind of life do you look at getting out of the heim rod ends on the upper control arms?? They look like they will last, but I always have my doubts about heim rod ends on the street.
#2. Also a question on the roll cage mounts, what are the thickness of the plate and do they bolt in or weld in?? Curious on these because the leaf spring perch is right below that location.
