Just spent some money, but it will be worth it

Came across a killer deal on a complete suspension kit for my 61 last night, so I pulled the trigger this morning and hope to have it late next week. Bought the stage 3 kit from ridetech. All tubular upper and lowers, front and rear, sway bars, adjustable shocks, etc. Didn't ever plan on going to this extreme with the suspension, but was able to buy this for $800 more than what it would cost to rebuild and powdercoat all of my stock stuff. When I'm done, it should handle like it's on rails.

I think you're gonna LOVE it, in fact, I'd almost guarantee it.

Ridetech / Air-ride has been bringing their shop cars to autocross events all over the place and I've seen them up close several times. The system works man!

Just make sure you route your air lines really well, away from heat and moving parts, even through suspension travel! Oh, and keep some spare line and fittings in the car in case you do ever have an issue with a main line. You can then fix it on the road.
