    Looking Good,

    Question : Who did you get to laser cut the lower shock mount? also did you weld it onto the control arm?

    Got a Dodge Avenger and same problem with the rear Coil Overs fully maxed out and still sitting to high for my liking.

    i have sent them off to be laser cut today, just sent them to a local laser cutter (one of my mates works there so that helps) have put them as urgent so should hopefully receive them this afternoon and then yeah, ill weld them in and probably get another mate to fully weld them as hes a structural welder.
    Them rear bags were actually designed for the Avenger

    Cool I look forward to seeing how they go when completed.

    I think (From memory) Patriot / Caliber / Compass / Chrysler 200 / Avenger all ran the same suspension,

    parked up at work today- threw one of my business cards in to show the massive amount of clearance i have in the front guards, ill probably change the camber to get a bit more as im not 100% comfortable with that

    If that's aired out I wouldn't change a thing, I figured you wanted that fitment

    I second this, you could also probably steer a little so leave it as is and don't worry

    Shit photo to show the difference between standard height and how mine sits.

    Still want to get the back 5-7mm lower to sit the same as the front. Have hit up BC coilover manufacturer to see if i can swap out the shock to one that will suit my setup better.
    Fabricator/welder mate said he could do a better job welding the control arm than i did (no surprise) so i will be getting another batch laser cut and he may even tig them up for us.

    cheers, might still put 5mm spacers on the rear.
    have ordered EVO X adjustable Toe bars for the rear too.
    BC got back to me, they only offer a 10mm smaller damper..... which sucks

    Ive got 10mm spacers on the back of mine and it helps fill out the gaurds alot on my car.

    Unfortunately the dodge doesn't have any support for Toe adjustment (outside of factory arms) altho the factory does have quiet abit of adjustment.

    Find a good suspension shop, you can have your dampers shortened if there is no smaller factory option

    had some spare copper pipe & moisture traps= new dump line & two more moisture traps between the compressors and tank. Same goes with plumbing in a air line connection to pump up tyres and what not.









    have been looking at changing the rear strut mounts to a adjustable one that mounts sideways on the damper instead of directly below the strut, which means i should be able to order longer dampers, to get more lift and just thread them down more to accommodate for the extra height

    going to run a dual center exhaust setup.



    made this exhaust opening/shield thing, will prob make a fiberglass mold if it and graft in into the bumper



    Was helping my fabricator/welder mate over the weekend build his garage at his new house so he can start working on his project again; might make a few people moist







    R31 wagon with a fully built twin turbo LS1, S13 front suspension (coilovers)/all brakes and all the fruit.
    we shaved it and painted it a little over a year ago. Just needs to have the wiring finished (turns over atm)

    have been trying to talk him into letting me design a roll cage for him but he doesnt seem to think he will need one.... oh and its still licensed to be driven on the road.

    stock set of upper control arms arrived so designed a way to modify them, keeping the same geometry, making them adjustable and so they also clear the rear axles so i should be able to get the rear lower.
