Wassup fellas. Im looking to upgrade my rear suspension to be able to handle the added weight of the music and other thing i have in the trunk. I currently have a JL 12w7 in a plexi mdf box ( will be adding another one )ported through the back seat, 3 amps and more to come, air tank and compressor for my train horns and a huge yellow top battery.
