Incredible, does it use rear coilovers?
They couldn't paint it for you? JK..

It uses front and rear coil overs, and 4 wheel disc brakes (Willwood) they are shipped seperately for safety reasons. They will paint or CHROME the unit, but I am gonna powder coat it after the test fit.....Street Rod Garage Ask for Chris Sutton.

You could just leave the adapters in place and have a ridgid chassis like the harley guys do. That thing is trick, I bet it's going to handle like it's on rails. How wide of a rear tire can you put on there?
I checked out the site, real nice. Why'd you pick coilovers over air ride, they were both the same price, just picking your brain as you did all the homework already.

I don't care for the complexity of air-ride tooooomany moving parts. The car should handle very well. I did not tub nor narrow the chassis/rear as it adversly effects handling/ride (probably should have a little). As of now, I am thinking: REARS= 275/47zr18 on 10" rims FRONTS 235/50zr18 on 8" rims. I would like to go a little taller on the rears, maybe say 265/50zr18.....still thinking....I like the bigger rims, but don't like the low sidewalls.
