I'm finally finished with the Suspension Upgrades to the GN, I used some spare time to clean and detail it. These were shot at dusk on a evening with a little cloud cover. It gave off a pretty neat color through the exterior paint on the car, thought I would share...

Any info on how well this setup hooks?

Looks like a pro stocker the way it sits.SWEET!

I have eibach springs that I haven't installed because I am afraid it will kill the hook at the track.I love the look of a low GN though.

I haven't had the car to the track yet, I've been really busy finishing my other project. It seems to work pretty well on the street with drag radials and #17 boost. I'd like to get out to the track soon to try out the combination, I'm thinking the 4.10's may be a little to much gear for current set-up. I really just wanted to give the GN the slammed look when I started the upgrades, but ended up adding the performance suspension parts. It actually has a good feel driving it on the street and on the freeway.
