Awesome!
Been thinking of doing that myself too. If I really wanna make this car of mine pull hard, these need to happen.
Been thinking of heading out to Montreal sometime before the snow flies again. Will have to have you take me for a ride when these are done.

Did you get re-useable rocker bolts? Those would be 25 ft lb torque (or whatever that translates to in Canadian )

If you're going to use new GM torque-to-yield bolts, I'd have to look it up (it'* probably in Techinfo)

I used blue threadlocker on mine.

Are you considering upgraded springs?

I can vouch for the reuseability of them. They worked great all 3-4 times..

They dont have many miles on them at all. I drove the car to the track once, and a few times to college over the winter (when my gf didnt have to go, we usually just take her car since it gets much better gas milage). And that is about it. Once the snow was off the ground i took the car out and did brakes and boom no more tranny.

As for springs i was spinning 5950 with stock springs (on a very low milage engine). I never had a problem.
