That our friend from Boulder? is his name 80wag?

Yea, 80wag is no longer a virgin to a coil suspension job. If you have a rusty 60 that needs a lift, I'd consider getting an 80 just for the easy lift install. Now to get the caster bushings taken care of......

I'm proud of you coming out of the "I drive an 80" closet! I know Nak did kinda grab your spring :eek: and pull ya out but you're out and thats all that matters! Welcome to the "only 1 decade old" Cruiser fold! :thumb: I realize that everything is confusing right now and you still don't understand why your "new" truck always runs better in Starbucks parking lot! You will begin to feel the mall entrances before you actually see them! We like to call it "the force" based on our hero Luke Skywalker as he had the same suspension feel on his ride. Welcome sir.....MC (Mall Cruiser) meetings are frequent and withing pushing distances to gas stations! Life will be much easier now that your paychecks all go to Christo and oil companies! :cheers: :bowdown: :kevin: :robbie: :beer2: :homer: :woot: :woot:

Bruce, how's the steering? Did you get your sway bar lowered? What about ride quality.. much stiffer than stock?

Maybe we should get :kevin: to show us where Castle Gulch is again... ;)

The steering is alright - a bit under-castered but not bad. I haven't gotten the bolts for the sway bar spacers yet. The ride is nice. Its not a lot different than stock. I took it up Boulder Canyon on Sunday and was pleased that the additional height didn't seem to affect body lean in the corners. That might change once I start bolting some steel to it though.

Castle Gulch is a good call although I would like to get the skid plate and sliders in place before I really start to play with it.
