"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

Thanks again, however its too late. I could not get this answer from anyone on the board 6 months ago when I asked. What is your opinion on changing my auto to a manual?

Might want to hold off on that RC 2.5 kit, the other day he was complaining about how much the springs had settled, I think I heard him say they were only giving him about 1" of lift up front now. I seem to be hearing that more and more from guys that have had the lift for a while.

The springs are still at the same height they were at on day 1. I just never bothered to compare them to stock springs. The other day, I measured a couple fellas' 3" AEV springs against mine. The front springs (under the Jeep) measured 15.5" from top to bottom. Mine measure 13.5" so if the 3" AEV springs sit at 3", mine are sitting at approx. 1" over stock. I'm all about staying low but I would like another 1.5" or so to bring the belly up a bit. I've been very happy with the springs and shocks for since day one but the time is nearing for me to upgrade.

Gonna go to the AEV 3" springs? I just installed my RC kit two weeks ago, but I think the AEV springs will be the next set, after I do all the control arms, SYE/CV, and belly up.

I'm probably going to go with some 4" Currie springs. From what I've seen, they settle to about 3-3.5" and that should give me the sexy 20" belly height.

Nice build. When I first read the title I thought about this ad...



...back in the day when I was in grade school my Dad and his brother saw this and decided they would put it to the test. They drove my Mom's '66 down a boat ramp at High Rock Lake. Yes a Beetle will float, but it's not water proof. There was about 2 inches of water standing in the floor boards when my Mom drove me to school the next day. Good times. Nice work.
