Got End-Links

Installed my Hotchkis End-Links last week!!!

Here is a bit of a DIY, the install was simple and took less than an hour. I think I spent as much time putting the car on ramps for the rear install and on jack stands for the front as it did to actually replace the end-links...

Front End-Links are very easy to get to with the front wheel off!

This really seemed to tie the suspension together, we have put about 100 miles of street driving on the car and the car feels really good. I can't wait to get it out on the track and really put it to the test!!!
