It took almost forever, but I'm pretty much done with the front end of this car for 2017 at least from a mechanical point of view. Installed the following:
Wilwood Master Cylinder
Wilwood proportioning valve
CPP slotted rotors
'96 JGC Quick Steering Box
Helix upper and lower control arms
Tuff Stuff 8" dual booster
ProForged tall upper ball joints
ProForged lower ball joints
ProForged tie rod ends and sleeves
Hooker Competition headers (with "dent")
Car sat too low with Hotchkis 2" drop springs, and the tubular arms, so we used 3/4" Global West coil spacers to get it back to where I wanted it. I had hoped it would've all gone together quickly, but I got the wrong parts a couple of times and the global west spacers wound up giving me back an inch and a half in height. Car finally came off the lift last Friday.
So I did the alignment today. Same guy has been doing my alignments for 30 years in an alignment specialty shop here in Springfield (Steve's Alignment). The owner noted that each car is unique when you start mixing and matching parts, but it feels great... steering wheel does try to return to center, no drifting in lanes... tracks beautifully.

The only item I _might_ add would be a beefier sway bar. Dave suggested the Helwig and thats where I might go (and add the rear as well). Down the road, I might switch to coil-overs up front, but thats deep on the list right now.
