It is stock right now, but I want to get Eibach springs, with KYB struts in the near future. I am just going to swap them out of my '81 for now, because my '82's rear end is pretty much shot. It don't have much, cushion in the back. And it rides rough down the road. Of course the '81 is not perfect, but it did ride better, than the '82 I am currently restoring.
