Such a cool project to turn up on here, Ive always had a soft spot for these.

Only thing I don't dig is the 3.8 haha a mild 350 would make it like 136839341823x more awesome.

6 bags because more is always better and i figured it would be quicker with 6 ;)

haha na the other two are for one of dads cars, or just to add to the collection of spares we seem to be building :D

Love what you're doing man, chevy + bags = win!!!

Did you know you're gonna get massive diff pinion angle swing with the unequal bar lengths though? It'll put a lot of extra pressure on your uni joints, and mean you need quite a long slipper joint in the rear section of the driveshaft.

Have a read through this article, then feel free to throw me some questions if you want. I'm definitely not an expert but ive read a lot about it and helped out with a few builds, including my own.

yea the rear suspension geometry isn't the greatest. the drive shaft is a two piece and has enough slip to work with the change in pinion angle tho
