Depending on what he wants to do with the car, look into Global West for everything minus bars. They make some nice suspension parts.


From the bat phone most likely in the oil patch.

The TVS is bad ass. I have one on my 04 lightning. Gave me about 1.5/2.5 drop with fantastic performance. It does ride like a horse and buggy over big bumps though.

I have the TVS on my Dodge Dakota. It rides really well. It was a 2/3 drop.

I'll update this thread with some pics. She's been torn down. Father in law sourced a ton of new parts. Lot's of upgrades finally. Including the TVS system.

So here is what it looked like 2 days ago. Since then the frame was blasted and painted. And the body will be out for media blasting later this week.

Kinda wish he would have started this in the summer, I was off all summer and we could have done it then. His brother and nephew came out last week since he decided to get hot on it and they tore it apart since last Friday. I haven't been able to help because of my work schedule. Although it will need to be put back together... the hard part lol. I'm sure we will be yelling at each other soon enough.
