more info on that HD with fd3s shocks

it is 75mm off the ground at the front so needs stiffer springs. The back is fine.
and suspension is completely wound up on highest setting.
sooooooo now i need to find someone who can weld eyelets and fork frommine onto fd3s shocks:)well and depends on price too.
if its cheap i can doit, if not, its just not worth it, i rather spend 1500 and get JIC's from japan

bithceeeeezzzzz......
ok, so i talked to that guy with fd shock sin his sentia.
he said fronts will fit straight on(tein) as their fork is wider than stock fd fork.
rears he cut of the eyelet and got an engeneer to weld it on the tein,
but he said you will need higher spring rates as they are too soft for a sentia!
well now i will be saving!!!

no i dont,
front will be 75mm on highest setting and im 85 on atm, and my ideal height would be 60-65 mark. rears are around 100 with teins and i want 80:)
so this is my ideal suspension and all i need is just to get higher rate front springs and get my mate to weld in my rear eyelets onto teins and its done:)
