        I assume that on your front suspension your strut housings, in addition to being customized are in fact the larger diameter ones. Am I correct?

          If you are talking to me, yes, they are the larger housings.

            Trent, how is your rear setup braced at the shock towers? Do you have any pics of your upper rear shock mounts? What advantage made you go with the true coilovers?

            Thanks

              I will get some pictures when I can. The largest advantages I went with the rear coilovers is that I Could, and that I wanted to prove the old wives tail (which it totally is) that the rear towers are weak.

                So they are unbraced?

                  They are slightly braced, use a mount that provides what is needed.

                            No rear sway is the way to go for sure.

                            Seriously Trent, I'm thinking about doing the same thing, so I'd love to see what you've done with this.
