Missing it up here at College. However, my dad was up here the other day moving my sister in at Chapel Hill and brought up some packages. My Crown Performance SS 8.8 brake line kit showed up!

Also finding it very hard not to order a Metalcloak stubby with the free shipping.

Well I did it. Bought a new in box Superior HP30 4.88 R&P for $130. Didn't think I'd be doing that for awhile but I guess I'd rather wait and get my axles where I want them all at once than have to regear later. Plus I couldn't pass up that offer.

Fyi, you are going to need master overhaul kits to go with the gears.

Yep I figured. Which do you recommend? I was thinking the ECGS with the free shipping code. $205 for both. But I was going to hold off on that since I need to get everything else for the swap first.

Brand doesn't really matter much, they are all the same. You can't install the gears without a MO kit though.
