This isn't just the yank desert guys, the Challenger forum is full of guys with problems with their Bilsteins.
    I'd also double check the shock travel, both full extension and full compression. Some listed applications are too short so if you use the full travel of your suspension you find the shock acts as the limiter before the suspension limiters do. Pretty disappointing to be honest, especially given the price.
    Thanks mate, i'll keep an eye on them

    You and i both!

    Chassis is now off being powdercoated, and diff is getting built with 3.45 gears, Tru trac, 31 spline axles. Should start assembling things for the last time in 2 weeks, then onto wiring. So getting close!

    Cheers Paul.

    Plenty of work has been happening, but mainly small stuff- front hubs i used some custom units from MSF racing, with 1/2' Studs and his stub stiffener, which is a sleeve that supports the centre bearing race and allows you to torque up the bearing nut- it is supposed to hold the whole unit together under load- which with the weight of this and the wheels, i thought made sense.

    Upgraded the 4l60e to a 4L80e- had the tranny pulled down and checked before bolting it on with a TCI flex plate to adapt the LS2->4l80, customer converter from the converter shop made up and installed. Tailshaft and crossmember modded to suit. Atleast this way is a decide to drop a blower or turbo's on it when done, i'll have a good base for the tranny.

    Wiring will be done with later this month if all goes to plan. Hopefully engineered before xmas.

    So wet right now.

    Any chance those pipes are going to hit the links or shock mounts at the back (yeh I am sure you never considered that or anything ) Looks close, might not be.

    Looking awesome though man, everything I would ever want to do to my old shit box but can't open my wallet far enough/have the skills to do!

    I think it's just the angle in that pic, and it also looks to be in the lowest position on the bags.

    This is obviously assuming all your AUX outputs are doing something. Ie idle control, and the other does water spray, and the other updates your Instagram automatically etc.
