      Will it hurt the shock at full drop with OME's?

      Gotcha - Jay's in Clinton Twp.

      I'd like to order my springs soon, but still just really feeling torn as to what I want!

      Ya I was hoping to get my lift on by the end of march, I should have all the parts in the next week or so. I went with the 927's in the front and the 948's in the rear. As for Atlantic Blue 2004 I think I have seen him on the forums but not in person.

      My experience has been - replaced struts, installed lowering springs on my old Grand Prix. Did at a buddy's place in Roseville since he had air tools.

      I basically did the whole job on the KJ when I installed the spacers back in Sept 2007. Did that one with hand tools. Sore the day after (yeah, I am WAY out of shape - cubicle all day) but worth it. It's really not too difficult.

      I'm not opposed to a lift party at some point, depending on my schedule. Currently my tools are in disarray in the basement. Goal is to clean and organize them all in the next few weeks so I can return them to my tool chest. That has to happen before I do anything more than an oil change...my KJ will be lift-less for probably a good month still.

      What springs did ya go with? I am still heavily debating between the 926 and 927.

      I wouldn't be opposed to a M&G/Lift Party. Do you know Jay (Atlantic Blue 2004, Rancho/Daystar)? I think he said he knew you. Maybe he'd want to participate?

      Thats cool man! Ya I know it's a good feeling knowing they are on the way, even better when I had them in my hands lol!! So do u have a lot of experience doin lifts or the like? Cause I don't have a clue, I'm no stranger to using tools just not too much on a vehicle. Plus I don't have my own tools or garage cause I live in an apartment, which is why I was thinkin about tryin to get a lift party together in the next few weeks, once all my parts are in.

      awesome! Thanks for the update! I'm tempted to buy up the rest and offer them for $450 shipped...lol. Nah, that'd be a pretty crappy move....or would it? ;)

      I just wanted to let u know that I talked to jegs today and I had them call rancho to see what the situatuon was. She confirmed that they were shipped from rancho on the 17th and they should have them in a day or two! She also said that they ordered 5 each of the 17004's and the 17505's and that there was one other person with an order for them so I'm guessing that is you. So from what she said we should be all set!!eek2dance.gificon996.gif

      Nothing at all from them yet. She said 5-10 days to ship...today was 5 business days. I honestly don't think they have any clue if/when they'll get them in. I am just going to keep hoping for the best!

      Yeah, we should get together. Marlon with the WK isn't far from you either. I think once the weather breaks, we'd be able to get a MI meet & greet going. I went to the one that Wolverine (on LOST) had a few weeks back, but it was just 4 of us.

      Hey I was wondering if you heard anything from jegs about the 17004's? I just called to see what was up and they said that they still didn't have them yet, and didn't know when they would get them. They said they would call me on monday after they talked to Rancho. I just figured I would see if you heard anything. Plus I noticed that you only live a couple miles from me, we should get together sometime, I live in Fraser.

      Hey, I reading some old posts about the remote starters, and i came across where it was discussed using the factory fob. I picked up a 561R off ebay for 10 bucks cuz it had no remote. Anyways, i just have a few questions as to how to wire it to use the unlock button on the factory remote. I can wire all the wires to the starter and to the neutral safty switch and stuff, I just don'y know where to wire the +/- input activation should go. Any help would be great.
