Reinforcement

Rear spring perches need to be reinforced! Almost every car not reinforced there we have seen broken or springs pushing through when set up coil over. When Installing the hydraulics weld in an extra donut to the rear spring perches for added strength. Some hydraulic shops are selling heavy duty ball joints for alot of money. You can get the same ball joints at your local NAPA P/N 260-1091 for less.
