Great look! Now lower the nose! and add a Chin spoiler... much more stable at speeds!

On New Years Day I moved from Grass Valley east of Sacramento to Olympia WA. I still need to change my sig line. I went from extremely dry to extremely wet. Beautiful country both places

I concur with Matt also. I read a tip on here about putting early 56 Corvette springs and different shocks. I bought a set from Rock Auto and cut them one coil and installed a set of Koni shocks set at full firm. I also went with Clark's light duty springs in the back and stashed my heavy springs for another day. The stance is excellent and the ride is superior.thumbs upthumbs up

Nice looking van, I kinda like the rectangular side view mirrors. What are those from?

West Coast Mirrors, it was an option from what I have gathered. They were on the van when I purchased it 5 years ago.

Matt, Fred, will be done as time allows.

Larry, They were new in the box when I got the van. Later G10 Chevy van I think.

They are from mid'80s GM pick ups. I have the same mirrors on my Greenbrier. Functionally I think they are perfect, and don't block your field of view.

Cut one coil from front springs and replaced lower ball joints yesterday. Waiting on new shocks to arrive.
