waiting to go on. monroe radialmatic fronts with -1" springs and monroe gas-matics rears with -1" springs,was set to fit this afternoon but then a discovery pulled up with no brakes,so suspension swap was put on hold,but fingers crossed this week sometime...thanks to sam for the front springs and thanks to madmart(i think it was you) for the rear springs
