FINALLY! lol Cool Well its not in for good, I need to weld on the plates for my Southside bars and paint it again, but it fits! I lucked out and made the correct measurements... lol

If yall dont remember, it is a 8.8 out of a 88 Turbo coupe, thats been narrowed 3.5" overall, and has strange 35 spline axles, with a strange spool and 4:10 gears. I have Southside lower control arms and UPR adjustable uppers. Those are also Covo pros with 3.5" of backspacing if you are wondering, and aluminum spares on the front with M/T sportsmans.

I did it for the WTF factor lol, and I had the engine paint laying around from my sisters VW's engine.

I wanted it to be sedate looking from the outside, but under the hood/trunk and under the car is the complete opposite. I know the hood scoop and rims kinda ruin that whole idea, but it is what it is... Hopefully once its all painted tan, and I get the windows tinted to hide the cage, it will just look like a 4 door that someone put a silly hood scoop on, and some wide tires...

Looks great, but I'd put another shock on there if I were you... Laughing

Thanks! I was thinking of just using the one shock, less weight Wink lol. I just didn't want there to be a possibility of the rear end hanging down so far that the springs fall out, so I threw that one in there.
