I am offering Fox struts that replace the stock strut but you cant run the the stock coils and coil struts at the same time . I have not had any issues yet with the struts yet and they have almost 8000 mi on them now . You can use the coil strut without the springs so if you are going to up grade later you can and not purchase shocks twice.

"Fox struts that replace the stock strut" This is what I was trying to say.

Will the strut bar clear the 16 valve ? I could be the test subject  :D

Hey bob, feel free to call me if you need measurements from the race kick for the strut bar. Also, what we talked about yesterday looks like it's gonna happen. So, we need to talk about spring rates and such.

Well after a weekend of some hard and heavy wheeling I broke my first part in 10 months. I took my first 3" kit and streched to 4 1/2 to see what would happen , well I found the week link , where the eyelet screws into the shock shaft at the end of the treads it broke . What I did was to see if some one had one of my 3 " kits and also modified it for more height what would happen and by removing 1 1/2" shaft support and now I now what will happen . Pics to come soon .
