Did a little homework and the coils are 8k and 10k spring rates. So definetly on the soft side. I will cut the holes for the UCA this weekend and do some cleaning in the suspension then off to get it aligned.

it just sucks that you cant side creep a speed bump because the oil pan will bottom out so i have to hit them straight on.

I don't know if is use diamond plate. The little raised diamonds could get caught on something can cause other issues! I'd just use thick Aluminum!

I am going to the junkyard this Sunday. I am going to get an oilpan and pickup tube. I am going to shorten the pan yet make it wider to compensate for the volume change. Sorta like the sr20 greddy units

I been dying to try my new welding mask haha
