hey all, finally getting a few things done on my b2 and thought i would keep a log of this project. my b2 is an 86 eb, been sitting for a few years, paid 400 for it and towed it home. when i got it home i put in a new computer relay and it fired right up!

custom long arms are easy if you know how to cut/weld.

there's a brake line extension in the tech library about using 2 pieces that are easily found at parts houses near you.

ended up putting a lift block and add a leaf in the rear, will put the wheels on tonight and see how it sits....should i hook the rear sway bar back up?? i was going to use the longer end links on the front sway bar....want to be able to drive it without it having a ton of body roll. will a front be enough??
