Are you planning to POR any of the suspension components? When the winter gets here, I'm planning on upgrading my rear control arms, springs, shocks/struts, and gears. At that time I was going to POR/paint my control arms in the front, rear end, and various other components.

I would like to see some of those components painted with that satin black POR, but understand if that's not on the list.

Ready to see the finished product.

The K member will be. Everything else will be brand new factory parts (other than the powder coated SVE rear control arms, which are already in), so we probably won't paint any of that.

EDIT: We are going to POR the steering knuckles and the back side of the bearing/hub assemblies (which are brand new, I just got the Timken units in from Rock Auto today.

Still no pistons or rods. I ordered these parts a month ago. I'm not impressed with ModMax...

Thanks for logging your troubles with them. Will make sure I stay away if I ever need something that they offer.

Is there any particular reason that you went with them in the first place?

They had the best price on a package deal for internals. I'm only one customer experience, and things fall through the cracks sometimes. I really hope they step up soon or I'm going to have to reverse the charges on my credit card.

Connecting rods arrived today. Pistons are scheduled to be here tomorrow. That completes everything we need to get the machine shop work done (internal balance and ring fitting). I'll take pictures before I send everything off to the shop on Wednesday.

I need to think twice before subing to threads like this. They make me want to spend money.
