    Default GNX Suspension

    I just ordered one of these kits form Pete Hoffman over on www.turbobuick.com anyone else running one of these setups in their G-body?

    It's a winter project, hopefully I will have this in by spring.

    Just received my GNX suspension package and tail pipes.
    Bars are going out to the powder coater, getting them done in red and the rear end cover is going to Baddd Andy on realoldspower.com to get polished.

    I installed an 8.5 3.42 posi last fall, going to take the car to the track and do a before and after install comparison in April or end of March depending on when winter is going to end here in Chicago.

    This is what I am going for:

    The alignment jigs finally arrived, 7 months later...
    Aligned everything and had my buddy over last night welding in the pan hard and stiff hard brackets and spring perch extensions.
    Still need to press in the bushings on the ladder bar and weld in the cross member.
    Once that is done I will get everything powder coated and send the cover off to be polished, wanted to make sure everything fit before making it pretty.
    Took a bunch of passes at Great Lakes Dragaway on Monday to get a baseline, I might be able to hit up Byron on Sunday to do a few passes to see how much my 60' times decrease.
    Should be about a 0.10-.15 decrease according to some TB owners.

    Suspension is in, next is to get everything powder coated and the exhaust hooked up.
