    I actually helped set up the Guldstrand 72 camaro under the guidance of Dean Dodge , who was the Guldstrand suspension engineer. We tuned the suspension on a skid pad. Guldstrand knew how to set up suspensions and was a great guy to learn from. Dean also helped me set up my camaro for autox. Those were the good old days when suspension tuning was grass roots. Thanks , take care and stay safe.

    If anyone has read the DSE instructions from start to finish (I have), that is no 9 hour job. No disrespect to autobahn, probably a very skilled guy, but I'd say 40 hours for sure from pulling the interior to re-installing it. And if you have the narrowed fuel tank ready to go.

    40 hours is what DSE will tell you to. When I was looking for a shop to do mine, I used them as a resource to make sure a shop I chose wasn't ripping me off.

    Yes. And to make sure the shop you pick knows what they are getting into. I could see many places being over their heads with it.
