Not sure what you mean, I don't remember posting about any spring problems. Oh, maybe you're talking about the tire rubbing on the spring perch? I never did get that resolved, pretty much as soon as...

I actually just picked up a set of FE4 Struts/shocks used from a member here. I know they aren't 1LE but i'm just about fed up dealing with Koni.

I'll probably eventually go coilovers at some...

If your willing to separate i'd be interested in the front struts, and rear shocks. Is the hole in FE4 struts for the sway bar 12mm? If so I might want those front sway links too.

If your...

1LE Struts in front with Koni orange in back, weirdness?

Anybody know if Koni Orange in the back and 1LE struts up front would cause anything funky?

My Koni oranges in the front are complete garbage and honestly i'm going to warranty them but have no...

The car pretty much wouldn't move if a axle popped. My money is on suspension as well. Maybe check the toe links and such too, give them a good tug see if anything feels loose.

It's talking about the front sway bar, not the rear.

The rear is a big long solid bolt, but i'm not even sure you need to remove the rear sway bar link.

Looks good, any chance you could measure or take a photo of how close the tire/wheel is to the strut tube? I'm assuming you have a pretty stock alignment?

Which pads you bought makes all the difference. HPS shouldn't make much if any noise, but anything HP+ and higher will be noisy.

Honestly, they are cheap cast wheels, the finish on them seems pretty decent, but the only real reason to buy them is just because the way they look, they won't help you out at all performance wise.

These things are quite thirsty on track, that's for sure.

Also make sure to swap out your brake fluid for a good DOT 4 like RBF600. Otherwise have a lot of fun!
