I just ordered one last week. I will tell you how it goes. I've done lots of searching on this site. Its a great source for information dealing with these cars but the search function sucks..... it does not recognize numbers like "8.8" or "SN-95" when typing in the search which leads to lots of unwanted results.

Good luck with your car

It went pretty well. I'll have to get some pictures posted up here. I'm new to suspension tuning and have some issues I'm not sure about but everything works. For a complete build of everything it sure roasts tires like it ought to. I'm not happy with the ride height or the lower control arm angle currently but I'm using a set of small free rear drag radials and a set of new stock rear springs that makes the car sit kind of funny. I'll post up some pics here in the next week.
