He lowered his and tells all.. he also installed a Magna-Flow Cat Back exhaust system that runs around 8 bills and you could install yourself.
I have the Ground Force lowering springs in my SSR. They lower the front about 1" and the rear about 2" and brings the SSR to basicly level. I think it rides better and no longer has all the body roll in the turns. :thumbs
We're building an SSR for G.M. and our client Tractech (Detroit Locker) for the SEMA Show. To get SSR down to where it belongs, you need to prepare for a lot of inner fender panel work, beg for a set of So Cal Speed shop fabricated A-Arms, and reverse the ball joints top-to-bottom.
Lowering springs are OK, but don't take it down enough for us.
Fabricated A-Arms are not an insurance company favorite, so I doubt if So Cal will offer these to the public, but you never know.
Look for our aftermarket accessory line including 2" headers, body pieces, exhaust headers (2") and more from Axiom Design Solutions in December.
I also installed springs from Ground Force and as posted earlier it is not low enough. I was in contact with SoCal folks and they can not give me a firm date on when their "lowering kit" would be available to the public.
if anyone is having issues with their two speed fan there is a company in Whittier California that just rebuilt mine for $200.00 and my cooling issues are gone. My buddy is a parts man at Kingman Chevrolet and his price for a new unit was over $900.00.
What size battery is recommended for the relocated stainless battery box that Simple Engineering sells I have an optima red top now but it has trouble staying up. Havent crawled under to see the size. Oem box takes 75 or 78.
I had another post asking about headers and mentioned the brands I have seen. Kooks. Stainless Works, and OBX. I know Stainless Works has a complete bolt in dual set up available. I have seen the Kooks Y pipe and seems like it has some restriction to it at some point but don't remember now where...
Penticton Support Tech Roof Struts
I really wanted to come to Penticton again this year, but just can't swing it.
Instead, I have convinced Steve Fenner (Support Tech) to attend the Penticton Rally and install pneumatic roof struts for the SSR owners that will be there. It wasn't hard to talk...
