No caps is a little too unfinished looking on this car, not so bad on a race car. I'm going to paint the remaining 3 cap crests sliver/black and move on. My weekend is booked with continuing exchanger work, I'll push the car outside for a few pictures Saturday if the weather holds.

On the red rocket the torsion bars set the ride height. The coil-overs were setup where the springs were adjusted tight enough to prevent them from rattling in the perch. The gray ghost had a sever case of droopy butt (partly due to completely blown shocks) so the coils were cranked up to set the ride height. The ride was transformed and is very very nice. The shocks and coil springs work with the t-bars to give a nice ride when hitting bumps yet are very stiff allowing little squat on boost.
Because the t-bars still do most of the work I do not believe there will be any structural issues. I noticed long ago on these cars that new shocks hiked the car up in the rear which tells me they are doing part of the work setting the ride height in all 930's.
