Re: Is this how Ground Control coilovers should fit?

not sure of sleeve fit, these are my front 280 struts with metal threads welded on. my rears just use the pinch cooler over the shock with the red sleeve. but the sleeve fits tight. i have not tried to spin it to see if it rotates on the bench. but it doesn't rotate mounted in car.

Re: four into two '68

i can't install the guage yet cause of speedo cable routing. so i moved to finishing the oil cooler. we used a thermostat style sandwich adapter at the filter end. and an earls performance cooler. most earls coolers have -8 an o-ring fittings. but this one has pipe thread. guess its new-old stock. o...

Re: four into two '68

got some 15x6 retro 4's from Futofab a while back and we love the look. thanks dave. :D how ever, the front clearance to the lower spring collar is to tight for me. :cry: so we ordered 1" shorter springs to give us more room. hopefully they will be here soon.
