Since moving into our new shop in San Bernardino I made a unilateral decision to redo my coilovers. I also installed my new engine and I am getting so much closer to actually driving it!!

We still have to make a engine crossbar and finish gusseting everything but just like SBC, we make progress everyday.

Awesome! Do you have anymore pics of the mounts? Did you mount the coilovers on top of the beams or behind them? Would you mind if I stopped by to take a look? ......in Yucaipa. I've been debating whether to go with the Camburg buckets or just do coilover.

Nice, NOW you guys move down the hill, huh? That engine is pretty sweet, I can't imagine what the "drive to work" feels like now... or do you still have a virtual offroad track at the new place?

Ever get your rollcage in?

Are you running dual coilovers??? Your 4th picture looks like there is 2 coilovers mounted to your shock hoop.. Am I smokin it??:smokin:
The second shock is a Sway-A-Way bypass shock. Only single coilvers per front wheel.

WOW.. I wouldnt imagine that you could generaly enough heat that a single 2.5" coilover couldnt handle it.. Good fab work though..
Under normal circumstances you could get away with a single shock application, however the has about 22" of front travel and 20" in the rear and combined with the huge HP and 4.56 gears we can hit speeds in excess of 100 MPH in the dirt.

one good set of 1/4 mile long whoops or rollers and the shocks will get nice and toasty.

Drive down a dirt road with Andy and you will be thanking sweet Jesus for those bypass shocks...

I was AMAZED at what those things can soak up.

Jeez, no crap, once you get that monster engine going. I don't even want to think about it. That's gonna be sick.
