Keep the 30's for the rear. I have run 26's and 28's in the front. Currently using 26's.....just seemes more balanced.

More than likely Losispeed the Ntc3 will handle the 30mm ok, but you may have some problems turning left or right maximum due to the inside shoulder of the rims rubbing on the shock screws that attach to the lower arm. Which in turn will restrict your full right to left turns. This is the reason why most of us run 26mm or maximum 28mm fronts.

Thanks NTC3 Freak! Yea those are the hard anodized shocks with the other shockshafts (unobtantium). The rear shocks came in today for it. They seem to be smoother than the stock shocks.
The BMI uses no upperdeck or radio tray, the chassis is stong enough without it.

the rear shock is different ah???seems normal enuff to me .i just got the shocks.nice shocks.easy to build.just 10 minutes for 1 shock.damn easy.i only have one complaint about the shocks.the lower spring retainer requires u to screw the collar until halfway of the shock body and make it so stiff.that is the only complaint i have.but i replaced it with rpm's lower spring retainer.is solves the problem.and it comes in blue!!! .extra style point.i may post my car's pics.but it is not as good looking as ur car bob,that is for sure

I also use the TC3 shocks and springs on our GT onroad truck. I polished the AE alum shock tops on it.
