Ordered a new poly tranny mount and longer front shocks and then installed them. The stock tranny mount was pretty *****ed and 2 broken studs. I HATE the new poly mount so I am goona order a new stock rubber mount. Also replaced the front brake lines with SS extended ones

Weird. My brackets were all painted. Looks like you've got 2 that aren't.

Get those suckers in!

So 12"? If you don't mind, fully extend the shock and measure the length of the shaft. No homo.

This was a very cold start at -30c it is only that loud when it's that cold and only for about 10 seconds or so. It is pretty invisible after that at idle and cruise.
