Here is a shot of my rear GC's w/ my Koni's
I ended up doing the install myself and have only gotten around to doing th rear...in which only took me 15minutes per side because I ddin't need a spring compressor 'cause my Susp. Teck springs were cut. Very easy :)

The ride is very nice...I plan to do the fronts this Sunday


I put my stocks on so I can go a week or so until I finish the front w/ out an alignment...

The Koni's are NOT orage, actually RED...the flash just made them appear this way :)

I had my coupe like that for 2 days when I first installed my GC's and Koni's. However, after the second day I almost ripped off my front bumper over a bump I decided to raise it back up. My 18's have a bad offset so I can't do it with them. hope you can.

HAHA...I don't plan to keep it that low :)
I'm actually planning to raise it up alittle more than it was before w/ my Susp. Tech springs & 18's so that I will not wear my tires out as quick as I had been...

I didn't do the handles because it ended up seeming to unpractical to me in the long run-- I just ended up shaviong off the ugly locks on both doors.
I'm still deciding on my final paint, but it will be a dark blue for sure. It is getting painted on early April

All done!

I finished the fronts up today with the help of Cody(thank you so much!!!) and my friend Wendall...it took about 1.5 hours to finish up the front. The handling is great-- and I still have my stocks on. I actually have the car riding higher than it was previously...but it still looks clean and my chamber isn't too bad. I'm going to put my 18's on tomorrow...do a few more minor adjustments and then get it aligned.
I highly recoemmend the GC/Koni set-up...it rides really, really, really great!

Looking good Doug, can't wait to see it when your all done...Another thing I ran into this guy who was driving a G1 legend but he said he had a white G2 coup with the top cut off and he said some guy in Decatur did the job but couldn't remember the shop..Did Cliff ever mention doing another convertible coup?

So when you went an brought new shocks you brought OEM ones? Also why wont the Koni's fit w/ the GC's?? Do they come as a package w/ and w/o? Also can't you just get the GC and that connection that fits the Koni's to the GC?

Damn I wish I could help more.. I know how annoying a problem is when you dont know where the hell it's comming from.
