Very nice... :cool:

Question though...I never seen a rear spring set-up like that before, actually I didn't think it was possible...I see the factory location of the rear spring is gone and the car is now riding on the original shock mount (I see it has some sort of extra bracket) via those coil-overs...is that safe?

Looks to be the same bracket set up I have on my Global West rear coil over conversion.
