Ok so the time is coming up here in the next month or so when I do my complete suspension overhaul, here is my parts list, if you see anything else I'm going to need, please add it underneath in a post along with the price, thanks!

- Vogtland 1.6" Drop Lowering Springs all around
- KONI infinately adjustable shocks all around
- New spring cups all around

I am wondering if I need shorter sway bar links now due to the drop? Yes/No??
Thanks!

Here's the thread for the rear poly spring cups that I told you about. You can see Big Mike still has his stock end links in place.

The shorter sway bar end links for the rear are, IMO, optional. I used the end links that came with my ADDCO bar. They worked fine and aren't much shorter than the stock end links. I like the way it sits now it has an ever so slight front to rear rake - (where the rear sits slightly higher than the front). Which works well to help the rear fender wells clear the 275 tires.

Thanks Trunk, good information there!

Take my advice and order some of the suspension fasteners ahead of time. I would get one set of lower control arm-to-strut mounting hardware, at least one lower control arm front & rear cam adjusting bolt and nut. Only the front nuts are available. Make sure you have a new front upper control arm-to-spindle pinch bolt and nut. Upper arms do not always come with these. You'll need one set per side.
