    The a arm should be reinforced to carry the load

    that was my first thought. All the weight of the car being supported by the bottom shock tower bolts. Again there may be some sort of bracket that spreads the load evenly over the bottom but who knows.

    To bad, they (Viking) only claim to "conduct select manufacturing in-house"; is that sorta like "assembled in the U.S.A".?; or not even?; but then, what is?

    But do in such conversions, be weary of the O.E.M.s' original engineering intentions of the suspension components, particularly of the intended loads, as often and particularly with the coil-over conversions, the weight and impact load sums are relocated to areas of, or components never intended to support such.

    Stare at it, and think about it,............. first.

    I will have to look up the part number. As far as the ride in this car I can not say. The case has just gotten mobile so I don't really have any miles on it. They ride nice in other cars though

    i just installed a set of coilovers from Viking. They allow you to adjust height and they are fully adjustable shocks.
    Oh thats interesting you have a part number? How does it ride now?

    So ran across this today. That doesnt seem like a bad deal when you compair it to the cost of new springs, and shocks.

    I recall seeing someone throwing some custom "diy" bag on the front of theirs but dont remember who.
    Where do they put the shocks?
