those fenders are nice.
look forward to seeing how the car turns out.
Interested in knowing if you did any planning or decided on where to mount the e-level sensors. currently trying to figure best locations for mounting sensors on mine but not sure if I am understanding it properly.
on the subject of air suspension...do you know if there is a thread on here?

ANy questions you have on accuair or air stuff in general, let me know, im well versed in the stuff now.

you need to make sure that with TOTAL suspension travel ( ie no spring, move it by hand ALL the way up and down to physical limits).. you mount the sensor arm where the swing is only 2.5 in from top to bottom.. the pic ill post shows you better than i can type it.

test fit and laid out.. will make a floor plate for it and test fit it under the strut bar when i get the car back from the bumper fitting/trimming.

Going to build a partition for the trunk/stb area that hides this set up from the cabin, cuts down on noise, and will hide the wiring breakers and water traps etc

i dont have a link for these unfortunately.. i buy them locally at Grunion Fabrication in Phoenix.

Really any fully metal fitting should be fine tho.. Try this guy, an ebay seller.. he can get you anything you need if you dont find it on his items, just email him.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/200977952691...ht_2750wt_1083

http://www.ebay.com/usr/rpm_rpt

other option is to hit up www.bagriders.com... they have a good selection of everything really.

lol np. Im actually dumping mine straight to outside air using 2 of the bulkhead unions in that picture, bought from the ebay guy.
Running them thru the back trunk wall so they vent behind the rear bumper... will be nice and loud from the outside of the car...

the Chrysler has the mufflers on it, and is in the trunk.. under a cover etc etc.. very quiet lol

I wanted the Z to be more aggressive.
