    mounted the shocks...will test them tomorrow if it doesn't rain.
    like someone else said, they were a boy dog to compress to get into the lower bracket,

    Got my Hedman header install complete and had muffler shop bend pipes to mufflers. Kept the mufflers I had, liked the way they sound and in very good condition. Also, did some detail work and wiring changes; ready to hit the show/cruize this week.
