Just as a side note if you go with coilovers you won't need a spring tool.
Here ya go....I bought these in Jan 2021, along with all the UMI Performance 2.5kit goodies, thankfully before the pricing went insane. 19 months later, just unboxing. Feels pretty good to dust of all those boxes.

No sense to open the rest of the suspension components but nice to know in a few days I can pick the subframe up from powder coat and start assembling the suspension.

First load of powder coated goodness...every part that is steel: subframe, inner fenders, spindles, dash board components, radiator supports, hood hinges, headlight buckets, hood lath/pin, steel inner bumpers and rear axle were sand blasted and powder coated using Cardinal GR660....a hammered charcoal grey with a stringy dark vein color. Its a slight textured gloss that is VERY durable and super easy to clean.

UCA and LCA, leaf springs, sway bars, 9" pumpkin and Alston Chassisworks G Force connector to be black.

Underneath of the car to be same color H.O.K. Tangelo.

Well, everything went smoothe with the engine build, they completed right on time, as they stated. Ships out on Monday...I cannot say enough things about how easy the transaction went. Still waiting on the subframe from powdercoating. Thankfully Alston Chassisworks sent over the sub frame weld in brackets for their G-Force Subframe cradle.

Feels good to have it in my possession, too bad the shipping company banged it up a bit. Bruce at The Engine Factory is shipping out two next valve covers today.
