Yes srsly, 5" spring seat top and bottom. I can use any 5" spring just cut to fit. The jeep springs have a great rate to match the front 472s

They are not all rears they just came off the zr1 or w/e came with 9.5s all around.

I got them for 70 bucks. The chrome is chipping and looks like ****. One has curbrash but its not bad, all else is good, ill epoxy primer the *****es and paint them satin black.

Thanks man

I love that he makes something from nothing.

Essentially that is the mother of car performance. Back when "kits" weren't available. Just a dude in a garage making stuff happen with his two hands.

That is the impressive part. He turbo'd a grocery getter and made it into his own creation.

I just added on to a pre-existing platform.

it really is a modern hot/ratrod, my favorite part is that he kept the stock size motor (at least I think he did)

It's a volvo, they're the safest cars in the world. Your argument is invalid.

Being a Volvo and whatnot, it probably came with better roll protection than a few DOM triangles can offer. Not that adding a roll bar is a bad idea or anything.
