OK a quick update (pictures to follow) on the suspension and brakes.
The installation was more challenging than originally planned and in the end. I replaced ALL brake lines (hard and soft); couldn't get the rear discs to work because my rear end is not a C clip type axle; rear upper trailing arm bushing turned out to be a 64, so the Del-Sphere bushing could not be used and I had to use a rubber bushing, and had ABS Power Brakes (Pedro) in Orange make two new and longer front brake lines for the LS1 front brakes to avoid any issues (stock lines were too short).
The powerboosted master cylinder (dual) is a 8" dual and fits nicely.
The front calipers are from a 98 - 2002 Camaro SS. The rotors and pads are Powerstop.
The rear drums were rebuilt with new cylinders (one was bad so I replaced both) and new shoes installed.
The front controls arms are inexpensive eBay https://www.ebay.com/itm/BRAND-NEW-6...72.m2749.l2649
I went with Viking coilovers in the front & their 550# springs.
The front end / steering linkage was replaced with the CPP kit.
The rear suspension is Spohn tubular Delsphere bushings (except the pumpkin).
(I previously installed a 12.7:1 jeep steering box.)
Initial driving impressions - the car is a completely different animal. Previously, the suspension was too soft and body roll / movement was excessive. Additionally, the steering was sloppy and not close to precise and had poor road feel. Braking was downright scary, but I still managed to blast the car to high speeds
and find a way to stop. Now, the car actually feels like a modern vehicle. Ride quality is amazing (tight and composed), steering is new OEM level with not too much assist and very good road feel (not Porsche 911 or BMW M level, but close), and braking is just awesome. Yesterday I did a little fun run with the top down and found a wanker in a modified BMW. He was quite surprised that I had no trouble sticking with him in the turns and that the goat or "boat" as he called it stopped so well.
I still need to play around with the compression and rebound a little bit, but in quick summary this setup ROCKS!
