Laguna is the track I want to hit next, gotta build some laguna pipes first, I know I'll be over that 90db limit there.

Just spent the weekend at thunderhill, we have some really good tracks here in NorCal.

Yea we definitely do.

Just look up exclusive track days and SpeedSF when they have 103db days. They are more expensive on those days but much easier for us and there will be a lot of muscle cars that day so it's fun.

Update for anyone looking into Silvers.

I just ordered some, but apparently Swift doesn't make a rear spring for the rear coils. It's some different style spring and swift doesn't have it. Can get swift front but not rear. We'll see how they are when I get them.

I'd call them about the swift springs, they gave me a set for mine. They are not the exact size needed but it's close, just a tad large for the base but works perfectly. I'll try to get a picture.

Here's an email reply I got from them regarding the rear perch and spring overhang.





Thank you for following up on your install. The spring perch will be just fine, our kits and most other manufacturers use a 62mm ID spring, and unfortunately Swift does not offer one in a matching diameter, only 60 or 65mm. Using the smaller one leaves no room at all for the spring isolators and the 65 just has a little bit of overhang. We have many many kits out there using the 65mm springs and have never had an issue, once the weight of the vehicle is applied it won’t be going anywhere. Thanks for the info about the rear perch, I’ll keep that in mind for future kits so people are aware of the install of them. I hope your ride quality has improved and you feel much more confident behind the wheel!

I ordered from a dealer but they said Silvers called them about the order. I'll have to follow up with that because Silvers doesn't make a spring rate higher than 12k.

Thanks for that info
