Hey baloguk how you liking your new set up I love mine but my only problem is when turning I get a weird noise idk what it is. It's not rubbing but sounds like it could be a strut or new full bushings need to be broken in idk yet.

Lakers-
I'm absolutely loving the new setup. It's like a totally different car, isn't it!?

Sorry to hear about your noises- what's the noise you're hearing!?? Mine is perfectly silent other than my tires screaming.... Have you isolated the noise as coming front? May be worth jacking up front with a friend and crank left and right to see if you can pin it down. First thing I'd check is the endlinks as they have "user" adjustment....

It is all together different I love it. To bad the cars didn't come like this from factory. The noise has seemed to quiet down after I got the bushings timed. We will see maybe I just need to drive it more and harder a lil bit lol to let everything break in.

Oh yeah the noise I hear is weird lol I can't describe it. It may possibly have to do with my front alignment possibly being off I need to order new bolts so when I get those and re do the front alignment that might help.

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. Now I notice the limitations of the P-Zeros.

Good feedback! Yes the ride will be harsher on uneven bumps, but like you said on even surfaces it will feel no different! Time to upgrade those tires and really have some fun!
