Josh is buried right now with oval orders and getting caught up on other things. I believe you can order the Griffin 12 and 10 on the temp site (I haven't checked lately myself so don't flame me. ).

It's true. I ordered one, Griffin 12, this morning. Their website says they will be shipping the orders out 1/4/10. Kinda pricey for a conversion kit IMO but if the performance is there then it will be worth it.

Now if Josh will just publish what's needed to complete the kit somewhere. Please.

You'll need, but not limited too...

-12R5 Complete front end
-12R5 Side Links and Center Pivot
-12R5 Spring Retainers
-12R5 Pivot Balls
-Proper hardware to bolt down the front end, side links, and center pivot (all metric)
-Your favorite center shock (Josh likes the Hot Bodies one)

These are the parts he didn't want to hassle with AE and Hot Bodies to get OEM as that's become increasingly difficult anymore.

Thanks Schreff, I have R5.1 which I'll be converting so I should be good to go. Do you know if I will need any rear axle parts? The picture shows a rear axle included with the kit but didn't know for sure.

Cefx.net is the temp site? I poked around a bit and couldn't come up with a price or a method of ordering. Seems to be mostly "news".

A little help?

From what I understand, all rear axle hardware will be included.

Josh, did the Griffin kits ship out today? Also will you be posting some starting setups for the Griffin as you have done for your new oval car?

Thanks, I look forward to trying the car out.

Where can I find a picture of this conversion finished?

Reports have recently surfaced that Josh was spotted in Hawaii vacationing with the Obama's.
