Congrats on the upgrade. Do you have any before/after pics on your ride height?

LOL, tell me about it.

I've got my 14 year playing in his championship basketball game (4th in last five years) this Saturday.

I'm coaching my 8yr. old in U8 soccer.

My 11yr. old is playing soccer as well.

If my 5yr. old daughter gets into the act I'm in trouble.

Does your ride feel bumpy? I've never really felt that in my 6
The 1LE will be a stiffer suspension not softer

The alignment specs are standard factory specs. Did they provide you with an alignmnt sheet for your vehicle with before and after numbers?

Correct.

The ride is stiffer but understanding that I was upgrading to a track oriented suspension and lowering the car 1" overall that was expected. With that said I did make a 2-1/2 hour drive home afterwards along the 101/134/210 fwys and the ride was good.

Here is where you should be for improved handling over the OE specs with minimal increase in front tire wear and a decrease in rear tire wear.

Front Camber -1.00
Front Toe 0.00
Rear Camber 0.00 to -0.50
Rear Toe IN 0.12
Rear Total Toe IN 0.24

This will improve straight line stability, on center steering feel and turn in.
