i haven't done anything, i have the DC shaft stock, therefore i can leave it untouched. i DO however need to add front upper control arms. i have a very minor vibe at 50 mph, otherwise, all is fine

just wanted to throw out there, that 3k miles ago i changed my oil with penziol platinum oil. it claimed to remove sludge clean the engine. i must say, the gunk that came out was impressive. it's idling better and running smoother that before the last change.

i used duracolor:
wheel paint (graphite)
high heat gray engine primer
7 (seven) coats of clear - just to protect them,
all in all, i spent 3 hrs tops doing the whole process

i sprayed the crap out of them with brake cleaner, then sanded them with 220 grit, wet dry sandpaper. then wiped them with paint thinner, and sanded agian. repeat the wiping with paint thinner to make sure they are clean, or hose them off and let them dry.

then spray on the primer. i went heavy on primer, 2 coats.
once dried, then i sprayed the wheels with paint. i put a light coat on each wheel, once the 4th wheel was sprayed, i went back to the first one i did and sprayed and repeated the pattern until i liked the coverage. keep in mind that multiple light coats beats 1 heavy one. not only on looks, but durability.

*tip* spray a soup can with primer, and paint. give it a coat every time you do one on the wheels. this way, you will know when it starts to set up (get tacky) without having to guess. once the paint on the soup can felt tacky to the touch i knew the wheels would be also.

this is when i sprayed the first ULTRA light coat of clear on them. i sprayed them 7 times, with each coat getting a bit heavier. if you go 1-2-3-4 like the wheels, then by the time you are done with wheel 4, wheel 1 is ready for a coat again.

they have been painted almost a year, and i'm very happy with the results. i have chips in the paint, but thats my fault for having new wheels put on the day after i painted them. if i would have let them set up for 48hrs instead of 12, then this wouldn't have happened.
