I know people often remove the quad shocks after upgrading lcas, but I was just wondering what the benefit was? Weight reduction because they're not needed? Do they cause minor unwanted restriction...

You know I'm not too sure. After finishing this new rear setup was about as far out as I had planned my near future mods after rebuilding the car.

Long term goals are F/I and cams. I've been...

Did you by chance try opening the bleeder valve after they had heated up and start dragging? I'm just curious to see what the caliper did in your case.

I don't know if I would say really locked up, so much as a significant drag. Say I just drove around and it has the drag. If I jack the front end up, it takes significant effort to rotate the front...

You know, now that I think about it, I can't remember if that was in there or not. It very well could have been. It just as well could have not. I'll have to check in the morning.

Thanks! I was probably going to go up to Gateway Motorsports just east of STL. That's the nearest 1/4 mile I know of. There is a new 1/8 mile track about 40 mins. from me in Bonne Terre I think.

For what it's worth, I ended up going with the Nitto NT05 in 295/35/18 and 265/35/18 (same sizes I'm running now). As I said, I don't really get the car out in the rain, nor is it driven in the...

I appreciate the input, but I already have them, so might as well put them in. A little extra insurance never hurt, right?

Sorry, I forgot to mention I plan to make a couple trips to the strip per year.

This thing doesn't get driven in the rain or in the freezing cold, so that's kind of a non-issue. Also, I'm looking...

Other than your usual things with any car, one thing I could think to check if you can is the torque boxes. The condition of the torque boxes can tell you a lot about how the car was driven.
