    I bought 348 adjustable shocks off ebay. Frame lays 5 inches off the ground and looks pretty cool all the way around. 360 staggered modular wheels Image Unavailable, Please Login

    How straightforward was the installation process? Any modifications required?

    I am setting up to do coilovers with QA1's in my '82 Mondial.

    Need to fabricate or get something at the top of the shock to fasten. I was thinking of buying an aluminum bar of 3"x2" and then 3" long and making a long inverted U so that I can pass a stud through it and secure the top of the shock using QA1 provided spherical bearings.

    I got DS502 and DS402 shocks but I think they are too short. *Maybe* 502 is good for the front but for that back I need DS602 or DS702.

    Spring wise I was thinking of 400 front and 350 back.

    Thoughts? Opinions?

    Fred, so the car is lower now? Do they mount the same as Mondial?
    Which springs did you use?
    Thanks,
