Your suspension is awsome!
I have re-done all my suspension with BMR sphericals arround Pedders XA coilovers. All I need is the bushing package, roll cage and the strut brace which I see clears your TVS easily. Im waiting to order my strut brace until I decide on whipple or TVS to make sure I dont have a clearence issue...

Thanks, I wanted the Pedders but thought that I would have to drill more holes into my strut tower. I'm really happy with the new strut tower, it's my second one since the first didn't clear the Maggie.

Strike the last question, I just found you build thread, congrats on car of the week!

You sure are going all out. Hope you take home the prize for the autox this year! You definitely deserve it for all the hard work you're putting in. Congrats on the new goodies!

Installed the coil-overs yesterday, now the hard part of adjusting the ride height back to where it was. Big thanks to John who came over to lend me a hand!

Not having much fun adjusting my ride height to where it was before. All I need now is brakes, rotate, wheels, ah you know how it goes. The build is never done.

Video of front and rear suspension after installing PFADT adjustable coil-overs. Video was taken during an auto-x event so these are extreme conditions. Notice how much the tire moves on the rib, it was inflated to 42PSI. There is also some movement in the rear subframe after the upgrade to full BMR bushings. Remember, these are extreme conditions and I would thing there's more stress on the suspension than while running on a track.

Stock sizes front and rear. I have them at 40 to 42psi during races. Auto-x is very harsh on tires. It would be ugly if the tire popped of the rim at those speeds a g's, I check the pressure before and after each run. I can't wait to get some slicks.

My car goes up on jack stands again tomorrow for some more mods. The mods planned for this session are listed below.

Install new stainless steel brake lines
Install line lock kit
Possibly install a front tow hook of time permits

WIll schedule a track day after the install of the line lock, hope to break the 12.5 mark in the quarter mile.

Been a while since my last mod, pulling the trigger on a Stage III Snow Performance Meth\Water injection kit today. I'm hoping that this will help me cool down my IAT, give me a couple more horses with a good tune and help make up for the poor fuel we get around these parts. Will update in a few weeks after it's installed and tuned in.

Ordered the rears today, now I just need to figure out what type of pad I want to go with. The pads for these cars are outrageously priced, looking at $150 an axle for good ones.

Did you ever get your BMR LCA's installed? I have the complete BMR suspension built around pedders coilovers.... I have the rear at the lowest possible settings but it wont allow me to get rear camber straight up and down. Wanted to wait until the adjustable LCA's are made available but as I think about it I like the lowered height so I wouldn't need adjustable back to factory rear ride height.

I say all this to ask are the LCA's worth it or should I wait for the adjustable version?

I actually was thinking of removing the post about those yesterday. I ordered them from BMR and then found out that my Spohn non-adjustable toe rods would not work with them so I canceled the order. This was the second time that I got burned by BMR where they force you to get more of their stuff to fit install their hardware. There were lots of complaints back then about them still rubbing on the smaller wheels. I'm looking at some Phadt LCA stiffeners now.
