  1. I have Street or Track Coil over set up as well.  Also have the Unisteer Power steering set up and very happy with all of it. Either way, I would suggest call Shaun at Street or Track and talk to him.  Great guy and knows his stuff and will not pressure you at all to buy his stuff, only provide you the info to make your decision. 


    Good luck.  


  2. I honestly think you would be ok.  You would need a pretty sticky tire and stick it pretty good to break.  It will find the weakest link for sure, but that could be anything from tranny, driveshaft, u-joints, etc.  I would honestly call Shaun at Street or track and talk to him about this and your brake situation.  He does this stuff all the time and has a lot of up to date and first hand knowledge of this stuff and deals with it daily.  I bought my suspension from him and talked to him a few times before deciding what to do.  He is no pressure and will give you some great info.  


  3. Do you plan on drag racing?  I would still be willing to bet you are going to break traction before you break parts, unless you just get crazy and get a lot of wheel hop or something.  The wheels won't fall off just based on the 9in design as the axles are bolted in at the end vs a c clip design in the diff.  I would get some strong 31 splines and the strongest 3rd member you can and go from there.  


  4. Hey Noah, welcome to the site.  Sounds like you are building a beast.  What are you going to be doing with the car, cruising, drag racing, auto cross?  That might be helpful to know.   Also, any time anyone asks about suspension I recommend they call and talk to Shaun at Street or Track.  He is great to talk to, very knowledgeable and no pressure to buy his stuff.  He will just give you the info you need for you to decide.  Plus his product are top notch.  I am running his front set up and disc spindles on my car.  Have no complaints. 

    Keep the updates coming and progress pics are always welcome!

    I am using the Vintage Venom Cobra brake kit, it uses a

    1" hubcentric spacer in the front and a 7/16" in the rear.

     

    Clearanced the front corner of the inner wheel well with a big hammer. Also cut the outter tab off the bump stops. Stock width rear end as far as I know.

     

    Nice Set up Grabber.  Similar to mine, but I am running the 18x10 out back.  


  6. What is the rest of your setup, motor, gearing etc?  Like 1969_Mach1 said, OD is how you want to drive, but I would think also on your setup.  I have the standard TK600 similar to the 17765 with the lower OD gear.  But I am mainly a highway cruiser and with a big block, plenty of low end grunt if I need to get things moving.

    thanks for all the info , I am going to go with coil overs but do I stay with the stock steering ? i am going to try and do the work my self 

    As mentioned previously, I upgraded to the Unisteer PS set up for a couple of reasons.  My manual box was wore out and was not fun to drive.  I also wanted to switch to a PS setup as I have a bigblock, with wide front ties and was converting to a 5 speed, and honestly didn't feel safe doing that with the manual set up. I never liked the stock style PS set up so opted for the Unisteer set up.  I have no complaints and it has worked great for me and was very easy to install.

    Coilovers i would look at Street or Track, Shaun is great to deal with he develops and uses what he sells.

    Upgraded stock style you can also look at Street or Track or Opentracker Racing, John and Sherri are both great to deal with.  Give either ORP or SorT a call and talk to them about what you are trying to accomplish with your car.  They won't steer you wrong and won't over sale you something you don't need just to make a buck.

    Agree 100% with this.  I personally talked to Shaun multiple times before deciding to buy from him, and have heard the same about John and Sherri.  Shaun talked through all of the options, multiple times and I never once felt I was being sold or pushed to anything I didn't want.  I ended up with his full coilover setup with Street valving and Unisteer PS and COULD NOT BE HAPPIER.  Can't go wrong with either option and for sure they will have something to fit whatever budget you have!

    Looking at the instructions I wonder if mine was an earlier version that didn't have the brake option. I sure don't remember it and it seems SO obvious in the instructions. I bought mine about 4 years ago.

    Yeah I guess it could be.  I just bought mine earlier this year.   That is one of the reasons I liked this kit as I didn't want sequential for the brake lights.
