If you don't already have a Skyrocket you won't get a new one.The lengths and angles of the bars will vary according to chassis setup.I recently had an 04 model on my frame machine and the only real difference that I could see over similar mods was the width in the rear of the chassis.These cars must have a lot of flex because there is very little tubing ahead of the firewall.

By any chance did you notice any welds giving up on it or tubing that looks like it might be a little stressed?

its a weighTjack, no sliders or coilovers on the cars.

I think they purposely do not have a website so that people have to call and actually talk to someone. That way they can give one on one help and try to diagnose each individual problem instead of providing a general help or tech section on a website. Although I dont think there is anything magical about the help they give or the setup info they have, the knowledge available is invaluable and therefore if you have to call then only people with their cars are going to call and talk in person and get help. In other words they arent in the business to make other cars faster.

That being said I went to a workshop put on by bob harris and kelly shryock and while he didnt give away any secrets it and he (kelly) was pretty informative overall as far as general info goes. If you get a chance to go its prob worth it, especially just getting into mods or especially 4 link stuff.
