That is some great news! What is your job?!

Bilsteins?

What did I miss about the motor? Body Damage? Where have I been?!

What shocks should I get?

Also should I rebuild the motor or just buy a new one with a warranty?

I'll get new tail lights pretty soon and prolly get all the body damage fixed and repaint it. I'm excited to see this thang come around. I should be getting my long arms soon! I still want a front bumper too!
this is the split I like to hear

Yea, I'll prolly get some 5150's for the front and 5125's for the rear.

The motor burns lots of oil and the body just has some dings in it. I still need sliders too. Lots of things.

I'm not sure about hard numbers on the motor. But, I'll be an A3 audio technician at Second Baptist church here in Houston. Largest church in America. It's really cool, I'm excited!

Sweet congrats. And go with 5160's. Much better shock than 5150's

Then 5150's would be a waste. Stay with 5125 or 5100's
