    I’d recommend the bilsteins so far. Only did about 20 min of driving on them in town before pulling my motor, but they seem to help with body roll and are still soft when you go big jumping the train tracks…. haha

    I used the Empi 7/8” front bar for splitty, used the urethane mount that came with it coupled with a slightly modified bug sway bar band clamp and a couple u bolts from the hardware store for the end clamps. On the rear I used the Empi 3/4” bug swing axle sway bar kit. Welded a couple plates for the center mounting. Will post up some pics tonight if it helps to make sense.

    Are you going to be able to run a pedal pan?

    God I hope so. Was waiting to finish up with dual circuit and disc brake install. Looked like a close fit after I got the master installed. Gonna finish it all up tonight.

    The pedal pan fit  it’s tight, but clears. The dual circuit master cylinder was a bigger issue with clearance  in the pan. Had to massage that a little to fit. I also attached a picture of the sway bar end clamp u-bolt.  93F27E82-7242-4C6F-8F87-2BE87436A2F685BD048E-F75B-4251-8F38-62C3A746BE6A

    Feeling better each day….   I think what hurts more than anything is the entrance wound….. 😎  😎  I think they cut through some muscles.. and now that it’s been 5 days…. I’m feeling better..  😎  It was a remove and trim job this go around..     Decompress the spine job…   Sitting around is not good for me….
