The front suspension has been powder coated. The stock springs and shocks were ditched in favor of the coil over front suspension kit from WSC. I also had the strut rod hardware chromed. I didn’t have them polish the pieces out because I wanted to keep it a little cheaper. It was $50 for the strut rod nuts and washers, with no polishing. I have no other experience with chroming but this seemed expensive to me. I probably won’t be chroming much in the future.
The rear suspension has the stock leaf spring set-up with 2″ lowering blocks. I tried 3″ blocks but that was just too low. I also installed new rear shocks from WSC. I like the car low but the headers do scrape in certain situations. I think Edelbrock has shorty headers now so I may get those.
