Griggs Severe Duty Control Arms and sway-bar relocator
them and my initial thoughts are that the turn-in is much more crisp
Delrin bushings for IPS Ultrasport rear lower control arms. Custom
made toe-link adjusters. 500# springs.
||For the few
weeks and 2 track days I did with this new setup, it was awesome!
The car responded beautifully at the track. Unfortunately, the IPS
Shock/X-Member mount broke on the left side and I've decided to
ditch the IPS altogether. It's being replaced with a 99 GT solid
axle w/ Motiv 4.10's, extra clutch packs, Griggs Watts-Link,
Torque-Arm, their World Challenge control arms, I'll also be
upgrading the front Griggs control arms to their Severe Duty control
the HAL shocks
||I was given some
old bumpstops to use on the rear HAL shocks. I should've put these
on the car a LONG time ago. When the car would bottom out, this
meant that upper control arms were slammed into the frame
rails...not good. Since the bumpstops were installed, the car has
been driven quite a bit on the street and I've only bottomed out a
few times now...and they were very large bumps.
||Switched out the
rear HAL 400# springs for a pair of 8" Suspension Spring
||This was a step
in the right direction. The rear of the car now remains firm
throughout corners and I was able to dial down the rear HAL shocks
during street use. Prior to the new springs, I was having to run the
shocks set to 13 for driving around town. It was keeping the rear
from bottoming out so quickly. The shocks are now set to 7 for
street use...track settings are still TBD.
for rear upper control arms
||I've had some
custom delrin upper control arm bushings made for the IPS
ultra-sport. This has eliminated the fore/aft movement that the
upper control arms were prone to with the rubber bushings that IPS
shift handle to fit the Pro 5.0
||So far, I really
like this....although I need to change how the handle is attached.
It's the feel gets a little spongy during track events.
