Default Goldline 3.25"


Has anyone done the Goldline 3.25" slam spring kit on their NA? Right now I have the Eibach kit and every once in awhile I start thinking 'it's not enough'. Yeah yeah I know. It looks good as is, but my mind just keeps on a thinkin' & thinkin'...

I'd like some side view pics (with 18s if you got 'em) and any other info on shock and alignment issues.

If your Cruiser is a daily driver I think you would reget it. That's just too low for every day driving.

Bags would be a much better choice

I have them on mine! It is a Daily Driver. 95% of the time they are fine. But the sharp bumps do hit hard. You also have totrim the bumpstops farther than other springs. Been on for about 1 1/2 years now.

Any pics Mark1? What kind of roads are you driving? I would think the OEM struts are way out of their useful range.

At work now cant post pic. Will do it this weekend.
It does push the limits of the struts, the rear shocks are fine the bump stop hits a good bit before the shock bottoms out. The roads here are on the better side of fair. ( smooth but with some bad spots.) IT is true that it does not take much to bottom out the struts. but with a properly trimmed bump stop no dammage will result. But you WILL hear it hit. I am not a good referance as i have driven lowriders since i started to drive, so the bumps may scare the heck out of other people but i dont really notice them anymore.

[|)] Now that looks cool!

I think Progress, Eibach or Goldline makes some type of spacer(?) to correct the forward shift of the axle. Does anybody know how that works (I'm already aware of the front camber bolt fix)?

Mark1, thanks for the pics. Gonna get some 18s?
