    Advice on shocks /spring set up

    Hello , I know everyone has different opinions but I was wondering if anyone has purchased the complete control arms, shocks, spring set up from DPI? I was going to possibly purchase the LCA in stainless but I also need to upgrade my shocks etc so was thinking about purchasing this complete set.


    SPEC SUSPENSION COIL OVER PACKAGE

    Appreciate any input. Thanks

    Before you commit to buy, check out "DriveStainless" coil-overs. He is a member here. They sure do seem nice. And I think RichNYS has a set.

    But they sure are 'spensive.... Maybe boarding on "overpriced".

    some guys just have to make a HUGE profit on what they offer for sale I see....


    There are much more reasonably and realistically priced options out there too.....

    Cool

    I said "boarding" when I meant to write "bordering"

    But hey, they are top quality and it's true. You get what you pay for. Can't expect someone to give things away without a bit of profit. Perfectly understandable.

    +1 for Matt's coil overs!!! And +1 for Josh's coil overs !!!!!


    Sorry to offend Matt and/or Josh.

    I don't make any profit on my carb conversions (in fact when value of my unreimbursed labor is factored in I lose quite a bit of money).

    Somewhat mystifying why some purchasers then go crazy and bad mouth me on multiple DeLorean forums....
