Full Rear Suspension with Magnaflow Exhaust

Post by MakingHole on 4/23/2011, 11:01 pm

Did a little work to try and get the power to the ground.

Metco Upper and Lower Control Arms with relocation brackets, Adj. Panhard Bar, H&R lowering springs, and Magnaflow Exhaust













Want to thank Mike at Pinnacle Performance, did a great job.

Deep but quieter then I like. I am going to do longtubes and catless x pipe in the future so I didn't want to go extream.

Will do the caster camber plates next week. Mike ordered them but they sent the wrong ones.

Looks great. No more 4X4! I'm sure that 13hp is at the fly. Probably negligible gains at the tire. Have you already gotten a baseline reading though?

Looks nice, it will sound alot better with long tubes. I wouldn't believe the 13hp either, but you may gain 1-5rwhp.

I agree with David. Once you put longtubes and O/R X pipe it will be loud. To loud for me probably.....
But I'm old and don't care for loud anymore. If you think that's to quiet I'll take them off your hands...... I think it sounds just perfect....
