Roush rear springs, relocation brackets and UPR oil catch can installed
 
This weekend with a LOT of help from Joe and Bill I got my relocation brackets, Roush rear springs, oil catch can, and line locks installed (although I still need to complete the wiring for those).

Thought I'd post up a few pictures
First the UPR catch can:

Then hidden among the lines - the solenoid for my line locks:

and after - not sure if you can see much difference because the location is different. When the construction is done and I have the full driveway back I'll take a picture in the same spot

I didn't get low enough to see the relocation brackets, have to do that later when I do an updated exhaust video.

lloks nice Jim - the rear springs really close up the wheel well

looks great jim really gives it a mean stance.

Thanks, the car feels a lot lower when I get out and the Roush springs are only in the rear to level the stance out. I ended up raising my seat up a little just to take it easy on my knees!

It is only about a 3/4" drop in the rear, but does change the attitude. I noticed this evening getting on the expressway I didn't get any wheel hop on the entrance ramp where I used to feel the rear end jump over a small bump and get a slight shimmy - now just firmly planted. So I'm anxious to see if my 60' has been reduced as a result of the drop and the relocation brackets.

Congrats Jim just did the relocation brackets myself. I am hoping for 60' reduction as well. Shooting for some consistent 1.4s.

Looking good

Looks good Jim. I did the Roush springs this winter, and should get on the catch can here pretty soon.
