I ordered mine from Baxterautoparts pick up next day for $32. They only have the fronts though. So I'm thinking of doing the KYB ajustable gas shocks, which I believe are around $44.

Yea, I was having a hard time sourcing some stuff, and that parts geek came through. How long did your shocks take to get in?

Its looking good. We're both on out way.

Grab some blue magic chrome polish and some steel wool. Really brings back a lot of the shine on the chrome.
