very nice! im elbow deep in a 4.3 swap :lol: waiting for the funds to finish the motor up so i can drop it in.
cant beat $15 to lower your ride thats a steal! and they arent even ebay knockoff blocks nice work 8)

i have been thinking about front coils and rear bags but havent decided on it :lol: too much $$ going to the motor/trans swap.. and the ticket :roll: how are you thinking about setting yours up, 4 link rear and modified control arms? plenty of bagged luvs on here to get some inspiration from

If you build the engine correct the first time who cares how easy it is to pull. I have a stock core support and a small block in my truck and I can still pull my engine pretty easy if needed. I dont understand why everyone cuts the core support, it is needed for a reason.
