That is exactly what I'm thinking of doing. That picture says it all.

I have thought about those. But the price is not worth it to me. Maybe for the upper arms in the rear. But a panhard would be fine not having an adjustment.

It is not really the way I roll. I would rather have the satisfaction of building it my self and getting an equal or sometimes a better result than a bought item. Granted sometimes there are mistakes. I learn, redo and move on.

Don't worry about it, the link could be valuable to someone else looking for just such an item.

Well. I caved and started to build the 80. I put the 4" springs and shock in that were sitting on my shelf.
Here is a comparison of the front springs and shocks.

Installed.

The rear springs new and old.

Installed.

Partially finished. I still have to address castor, brake lines, panhards..... and I box lined the flares.

Well I was in the garage and started to rip apart the engine to do some seal changes and came across this gem.

Yep it is a "TORNADO FUEL SAVER saver saver"
I do have proof that it saves fuel.

As you can see in the photo there is the saved fuel. It has been concentrated into a mucky residue and store conveniatly every where on the "TORNADO FUEL SAVER saver saver". So everyone go out and buy one.
I did notice how huge the throttle body is on this motor. It needs a cleaning.

Plus I'm 5'6" and this engine is huge making it hard to reach the back end of the motor.
