full suspension

I think i have full suspension now...!!! thumbsup
it started with hotchkis springs,
recently hotchkis sway bars,
brash-boy front strut brace,
And today just installed Kyb Agx shocks.
All i really need is rear strut brace(i don't know if i should get it or not).
And i think i would be set.
PS:thanks to Ron(CID498) for helping out with all the work

^ I love Sultan thumbsup. He mods the way I do. Lots of smaller good mods, keeping the car clean...rims and kit can come later. By the time I finally get rims I won't need too much else for that car

Dodgers are actually pretty good this yr. Sucks that Gagne's streak is over, but that just means he start all over & break his own record.
