I didn't have enough cash this year to do everything I wanted, so the brakes got put on the back burner until next year. This year is devoted to overhauling the abysmal Mopar steering.
I've driven cars with Firm Feel stage 3 boxes in them and while better, it still leave a lot to be desired in that there is a good amount of slop at the top (about 15 degrees) before the tires start turning. Borgeson Steering came out with a bolt-in box a couple of years ago for us Mopar guys and since then it has been through two revisions; this box I'm going to install is the second gen box. Main features is that it is 15lbs lighter, is physically smaller, feels like modern rack and pinion, and has a 14:1 ratio already built-in. This is going to make header clearance for the big block install a lot easier.
Next up are some more parts from Firm Feel: tubular upper control arms, HD front and rear sway bar links, and new upper control arm pivot bars (my stockers have the crosshatch on the bottoms wore to nothing).
I take the control arms in on Tuesday to have my shop install them. I figured if the shop 30 minutes away from the house I might as well have them install the arms too since it was coming their way for an alignment. The box I'll install myself when I've got time, but with getting ready to move to a new home it might be a while.
Fun times ahead!
