I think they look good. What size did you end up using up front?

The front are 225/50/16 24.7 " dia . I need to do a quick alignment in the front and set the camber in the rear before I take it to the alignment shop. Im pretty happy with the way things look. Once I get my rear caliper brackets back I'm only weeks away from putting back on the road. So in the meantime I need to work on the wiring (headlights turnsignals an backup lights)

The fronts are 8s and the rears are 9s. I think after I driver her for a while I'll change the front springs from 8" to 10".

Hey if you’re in Long Beach drive up to Torrance and see Mario @ TSR he makes all the pieces to put the Brembo kit on the rear. Working on the car has been a little slow due motivation. Thanks to Derux for getting me info on bolt size on the sway bar mounting bolt 10mm x 1.25. He's coming by the house to do some parts swapping I thought I would try to finish up the sway bay setup. I had 2 1" sway bars made up one with eyes on the end and one with straight bar ends. It's a little different but the end slide back and forth to stiffen or soften the sway bar. I still have to powder coat and get new hardware but I hope you get the idea.

Well after I the good news that the brake adaptors where on their way. I start to make sure all the nuts and bolt where there to put everything back together. The half shaft nuts on the diff side where in poor / rounded shape and 8 out of the 8 bolts where wrong at the hub end. So I went down to my dealer to order the right bolts 8 lock washers 16 and nuts 16 and $ 50 and 2 day later poof there here. After a busy day at the Zoo with the family. The brake adaptor where at the door when we got home. I had to send a couple of work emails then out to the garage to do some test fitting. All I can say is everything worked out well. But by no means is it a bolt up one size fits all. The kit would look better and have less issues if the wheels where 17" or 18" and more - offset. Let me know what you think???


BTW what oil should I use in my LSD (nissan clutch)


Sorry phone pic's
