  1. I don't think the AC Delco's I selected are lift springs.. they should be OEM height just the variable rate (someone correct me if I'm wrong here). I'm in the same boat as dogla above in that I don't really do much if any hardcore off-roading, its mostly just rougher terrain i'm driving on so i'm not too worried about the articulation. I will def checkout the Bilsteins though. might be worth it to just get them based on the love for them around here.
  2. That’s good to know! I will order the manual locking hubs next paycheck after I get all of the suspension parts ordered and get them installed.
  3. Thanks dogla! I decided not to go with the front end kit as I don’t want to mess with the steering rack and pinion. Ordered the lower control arms and ball joints separately. I also ordered the stabilizer links for the front and rear.I Should probably update the Post with that. manual hubs will be down the road, most people say they aren’t super critical right away but a good idea to add on to prevent CV wear.
  4. I'm doing some suspension upgrades to my 97 pathy and I was curious if anyone has used the AC Delco variable rate rear springs (part number 45H2157)? Current parts list is below, id love for some feedback on the selected parts if anyone has any. I'm looking to hit about middle of the road on cost for components, I don't want the cheapest but I'm also trying to avoid shelling out the money for Bilstein's. Gabriel ultra ready mount struts for the front (already ordered and delivered, can return if need be) KYB gas-a-just rear shock absorbers AC Delco variable rate rear springs MOOG ball joints AC Delco control arms for the front MOOG front and rear stabilizer bar links 2" all around lift kit from SF creations Is there any other suspension parts either for the front or the rear I should have on standby just in case?
