Front suspension is done

Off to the alignment shop tomorrow morning. The new springs seriously lowered it. I think the back may get the same treatment over the winter, provided I can find the cash.

Definitely lower in the front. Chris' 73Z had Hotchkis 2" all the way around, and IMO the stance on that car was perfect. Just something to think about for the rear leafs. 8)

I came in from the garage a bit ago. The toe is set to 1/16 and my steering wheel is straight. Camber is -.5 degree and the castor is 3 degrees each side. Could it be possible that I might actually get to DRIVE this car tomorrow after work?

Out for a short drive this afternoon. It was tracking straight and true with a centered steering wheel. I think I should find a qualified shop to double check it. Any suggestions?

The transmission program still needs tweaking. It was hunting between 3-4 today when I was stuck in traffic that was cruising at about 47-50 MPH.
