I'd run a set of 13" or 14" spokes, nothin bigger! As far as only a front kit goes, street black kits average $350.00. without doing reinforcing order a set of 2 or 3 ton pre-cut hopping coils. Run 3 batts. for 36v. this should give you a couple inches off ground, but keep one thing in mind, your shit could mess a bearing up or ball joint depending how good a shape your cars in. Only thing i can say is save more $, this will not keep you satisfied forever. peace out.

how much hopping are you planning to do homie???

will this be a pure hopper or are you planning to 3 wheel as well?

locking your frame like the homie said is not just a good suggestion but also a necessity.

its best that you hang around lay it low for awhile and read posts.

start topics and ask questions like what your doing right now, another resource besides your local hydro shops are car clubs.

look for a cruising hang out, make friends and take it from there.

and welcome to the wonderful world of adjustable suspensions.
