    Yes sir.

    Front
    ------
    -Techno toy tuning ground control weld on coil over kit with 300lbs spring
    -mk2 mr2 rear shocks (they are hella short and drop the car a lot without even spinning collar down.)

    The front ride I awesome super tight no more body roll

    Rear
    -------
    - autozone 3" lowering blocks (I have another 2 I'm throwing on but need to roll fenders)
    - 1982-1992 camaro rear shocks (these are about 2" shorter than stock shocks mine are from junk yard and are blown so when I hit a good bump my diff hits floor not gonna yet my diff but kinda annoying sometimes but def worth the drop)

    Nice man... Did you have to shorten the tubes on the front for the mr2 shocks? If so by how much... I also bought some blocks too but the u bolts that came with it are too big... Are the autozone u bolts perfect fit?

    Yes we shortened the tubes I think about 2 inches ill email my guy and ask him.

    The autozone u bolts are too big for the holes on stock plates. so I took a bigger drill bit and bored out the plate. Then took a piece of pipe about same size as axel a little smaller and used a vice and smashed it to make skinnier and so it would line up with the now bigger holes on the stock plates.

    And above the plate is a built like alignment/holder plate that I just removed because was causing issues trying to tighten bolts. Now no problems at all actually qhen tightening bolts up. got a little lower ill take pics at home after work and post em for you
