After a long 3 day weekend of installing, everything is on and tightened. Thank god i'm done. This is probably the first and last time I ever do something so labor intensive with the GS. LOL

I'm just going to let anyone know up front that it would be wise to take out 2-3 days to do a similar install and it would be good to have 1 or 2 other people with you that are knowledgeable on suspension also.

Anyways.. Onto some more pics as I know that's what everyone loves.

Before:


After:




I know it's not the same pic, but that was the best I could do to get all of the arms and whatnot in the photo.

A pic of the retro for those who would like to see:


Lastly how the car now sits.. It actually was A LOT lower in the rear than expected. I drove around the neighborhood and no scraping, but I think I may end up raising it about a half an inch. Should be about a month or two before I throw on the wheels, so yeah.





Enjoy the photos guys.. I'll update as updates come along.

Looks good.
Thanks guys! And yes the guy who does my alignments loves the adjustable arms. He always told me my car was easy to adjust due to my coils and toe links before. He's gonna be one happy camper tomorrow when he sees all this.

Is this your daily driver ?
Yes sir, I strive to use only quality parts and yes it is my daily driver. I wouldn't want any other car to be my daily.

Suspension setup is looking solid. How difficult was it to install the Battle Version parts?

It honestly wasn't 'difficult' it was just tedious. Like if I would have had an actual lift and shop it would have been really easy. Shoot if I didn't have the RUCA's it would have been STUPID easy. The RUCA's are the only part that's the total b****. Other than that a 5 year old could do this.
