I swear the wildwood rears are nothing more than a 9" ford kit made to work on a stock drum setup. lol at least that's what it looks like to me. cant wait to get them. although they probably wont be installed on the car for awhile. gotta get the rear axle powdercoated but now I can actually go ahead and have that done. I never wanted to install the neon rear setup. I have always wanted a matching wildwood rear setup to go with my fronts. so... I am very glad I FINALLY got these.

chris, id go with a dark bronze honestly.



RIP silver car. You will be missed.

you are partially right. it is a ford 9 inch kit, but the drum is no where near stock. it is about 2 times as deep, and bigger diameter. trust me been there researched that.

anyways here are some pics of the front coil overs installed and ready to go. also re-shimed the brake calipers. I had some scrapage on the outside of the rotor. i think i forgot a few shims when i repainted them.

these are the extreme low kit. not sure the difference, but yeah. it will be a few weeks before i can drive the car again...so who knows when i will be able to feel the ride.

The extreme low kit just uses a shorter shock cartridge making it lower overall.

The new brakes are on. Fought with the SS lines for a bit, and have to notch the ebrake cable spring bracket thing. then will be able to bleed and get the car on the road!

Pics of modded cassette? Also i imagine your going pjs route for using the l61 icm to drive the ss coils? Do you have a write up I could use??

im not taking the car apart again to get pics of the cassette. Its easy. If you take it off and flip it over, there are a few small screws. remove those screws and the top comes off. Then mode to fit your VC. all i did was machine the 4 tabs that stick out (that connect to the VC) flat. It was very simple. There might be pics earlier in this thread.

As far as the ss coils, They are wired to wasted spark. removes out ICM completely.

He no longer owns the car nor does it really exist anymore. I purchased it off of him last year and tore it down for parts.
