Sucks. The driver of that truck should get a swift kick to the nether region. Oh well, time to give sqrivi a call!

Alright.... have a little money now. Thinking about Thrasher heads and getting the sc snout milled down to accept a 2.5-2.6" pulley, getting a 75 shot, or have the interior replaced... What do you guys think??

Of course I could always pick up a set of tires (37x15.5x15) for the Bronco...

No tires for the Bronco!

I say twin charge it, but that would be too awesome for anyone to actually pull off.

I agree with Aaron. There's been a few people who've done it since Zooomer's camp did with their drag car. Ultimately, I might end up doing this with my Regal. But a Riv would be so much cooler. happy

Broke another rear shock mount again. This time on the driver's side. Fortunately, I am getting pretty quick at modding them for the Rancho shocks and replacing them...

Real quick, someone tell me what side the e-brake is on - if I remember right, its on the pass side but I meet with the insurace company in the am and this might be included. The Riv is parked away from me for now and I can't get to it before my meeting...

You broke the mount? And this is normal?

what do you mean? The pedal is on the far left of the pedals. The cable goes to both rear wheels, right and left. ?

I know where the e-brake pedal is. I was wondering if the e-brake was on the left or right on the rear of the car. On the Bronco it's just on the pass side and thought it was on the dvr side on the Riv...

Jack the R- I will get a photo up to show you where it broke... but yes, this is the 2nd time I had to replace the rear shock mount(s).

P-brake engages both rear wheels, as derek said. A one-wheel p-brake would spell disaster if engaged at speed.

Whaat? The Bronco only has one e-brake? I don't think so. As AA said, it would be disastrous if applied at speed.

Every e-brake I've ever heard of applies both sides.

Thanks. I've yet to have a problem with mine, and they're the original mounts the car came with.

I haven't run over any curbs yet though freak

My back tires didn't hit the curb... just stopped short. Car went in about 4'. But sometimes I do thrash the car hard... Getting pictures up tonight- promise.

Looks like you are consistently finding the upper limit of what the rear shock mounts can handle twisted

Strong testimony to how much faster you are than anyone else!

And/or strong testimony that the Ranchos aren't damping enough shock. Maybe a softer setting, or some heavier duty shock mounts are in order? These shocks were designed to support the weight of two Rivieras. Without proper loading, there may not be an opportunity for the shocks to absorb much.

Can you weld in that circumference and maybe make it stronger that way?

I don't feel an incredible amount of shock coming through.

Ewolfe, how many miles are your mounts lasting?

If you see an email button in ewolfe's profile or postings, you may want to try using it.

Merged your thread. ewolfe's build is one of the best documented here, so start on page one of this thread and read through the more than 450 posts; should give you some idea of what went into it.
