Default L&M R/T 392- Stage Two

For those who don't know that there was a Stage One, which was essentially a 392 crate motor with an HHP tune, you can read the details about that right here:

Stage Two will be documented on this thread. Here's the list:
  • L&M Y-Pipe
  • Ridetech Coilovers Front/Rear
  • Brembo Brakes Front/Rear (SRT8 Brembos/Stock Rotors)
  • L&M Adjustable Sway Bars Front/Rear
  • L&M Adjustable Control Arms (Front-Upper/Lower)
  • L&M Adjustable Panhard Bar
  • MCG Drop Spindles
  • Custom Steering Wheel w/2013 Gear Shifting
  • MOMO Shorty Column Shifter

  • 4.56 Final Drive with G2 Diff Cover
  • Painted Fender Flares
  • L&M Driveshaft Loop
  • L&M Built Transmission
  • HHP Tune- Round Two (Optimized Fuel Tables)

Here's a few pics of the suspension components which are being installed today with a proposed finish date of next Saturday:

I noticed you're using the ride tech coilovers, are you making custom mounts for the rear or is that just going to be a different spring and shock setup?

No custom mounts, just a custom shock body length and top eye bolt mount. I'll be posting more pics here in an hour that will show this better.

You and me both! Here's some more pics of the front setup. Now as we all know, the MCG spindles make you stick out. The L&M adjustable upper control arms fix this as you can see in the last two pics.
