Re: How do YOU guys jack up the car

Good to know, next time I get under the car Ill get a better look underneath to find those spots. Aluminum is nice cuz its much lighter. My old jack weighs almost 100lbs and is a biotch to get in the truck

Thanks for the input

Re: wheel offset change

The ls4 sounds good but shoehorning that thing in the engine bay seems like a b%$#@! I took the car out for a drive today and to the smog station. My first time in a v6 fiero. Wow that things got some pep! I had a blast driving it. Failed the visual tho, needs a cat. Made an appt for monday for that...

Re: wheel offset change

Thats way down the road, Ive been looking at those V8Archie kits, looks like any work that needs doing requires the engine to be dropped. The v8 is way against the firewall. I got spoiled building my 66 mustang, lots o room everywhere except for those damn shock towers.

Im going for 275/40/18 to give me just a bit more diameter but im really trying to get the wheels outward more. Im in the process of chopping 2" off the front nose to curve it i...
