I am still waiting on final word but it looks doubtful. So the host hotel will be having an opening.
I hear you. The only thing keeping me from going crazy on the tracks out here is the roll bar. I have been fence sitting for a year on that. There are times I wish I didn't get a vert so I could enjoy the mods w/o the bar, however I think to the fact that 99% of my time is on the street.

A personal reason that I don't want a bar at this point is we are expecting our first child. I love the thought of being able to take a coastal cruise with a shorty in the back =).

I am looking forward to this upgrade.
Good choice, I have Pfadt trailing arms and toe rods and they made the wheel hop disappear.

UPDATE! Had my Pfadt ZLspec sways installed by Haddad Motorsports on Friday with the poly subframe bushings. I already had the Hotchkis 1" drop springs installed. I notice that the ride is harsher over undulated uneven surfaces and bumps, but, ride nice on even or smooth roads. No noises and the handling is great and virtually no body roll. Now I notice the limitations of the P-Zeros.
For you convertible owners that want to have a great handling car I highly recommend this setup. If you want just the lowered look with not much change in ride quality from OEM and no clearance problems with some better handling get the Hotchkis 1" drop springs made for the convertible. Talk to Tyler at JDP. He can fill you in with what you need.

Thanks for your feedback and support! I am glad you are liking your new suspension. Like I said in the other thread, once you get some good tires the fun really begins! Have a good one!

Best regards,

Tyler
