Default Sawzall Suspension Time

I had a stripped endlink allen keyway and don't have air at the moment, so decided to Fae it off...

It was however, anticlimactic. Buzzed in to about a millimeter after cutting it off and one hammer blow per nut half on a flathead chiseled the remaining bit off.

I'll do the front tomorrow but then I think suspension components are completely done. AST 5100s about as high as they'll go, FM bars front and rear, 949 endlinks because low.

Now rubber, 9" 6uls, and an alignment time.

(If these pics are sideways I dont know how to fix it; they are correct on my phone.)

Do yourself a favor and ditch the FM rear bar. With 800/500 it's way, way too much. Put a stock rear bar on the car or (ideally) use a 14mm MSM bar.

Ok thanks for the tip. I knew the MSM bar is popular but it didn't dawn on me that this is larger.

I don't know if I am 100% in love with the slightly firmer front ratio the 800/500 gives, would it be dumb to go MSM or stock rear bar and do softer front to get back to a 1.5 ratio? I like the overall firm springs for the ride height I have, but do 750"/lb springs exist? Would I even notice?
