    Well you look like you're ready to put it all together . You car should ride well after all this .
    And after all this you're going to replace with firm feel parts ? Wait a year or 2 , at least wear these out a bit !
    Good luck , let us know how it goes

    You have some good and strong parts there. I like the LCA stiffeners. Your car will handle much better than it ever had before. There are some very good posts with excellent advice on putting together suspension components here. Just check through some older threads, especially for removing and installing bushings, etc.

    Thanks Fishbreath, I will look those threads when starting work on the car. For now Im finishing to buy the parts I will need and in mean time, researching on magazine and manuals about how to do it. And FABO has been very important on that.

    Thanks man.

    And don't forget Andre, you can always ask more questions about parts, processes, et cetera. Nobody here is going to bite...unless they have rabies!

    Helo folks!!

    Some stuff is going on. Not new parts yet, but now I am studying and planning the rebuild process. A lot of help from FABO friends and a new one arrived here:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This is a SA Design book write by Mike Martin in 1984. It covers all suspension basics and how to apply this concepts to Mopars. Have been my reading book, lot of information for a un-experience guy, like me. But I think is good for who has some experience too.

    A question for FABO guys: the books says tha "The closer the socks is mounted to the wheel and the more vertical the mounting, the more the shock will control the spring. "

    What do you think about that? How to verticalize a rear shocks in our A-Bodies? Follow a pic from the book:

    [​IMG]

    That is it guys!

    Let´s keep talking!

    Hugs from Brazil!
