I can't go any lower. I took the lower spring seat and lock rings off the billet adapters and have the springs riding on them. Some of the height is a function of spring rate. The rears are now up to 8kg. The front end drags across almost every incline. With the higher coil rates the car rotates in the turns and is a handful. Ride quality left about three spring sets ago.

I think that means we are ready.

I have two show cars waiting for me in Vegas to get all new coilovers. Sunday morning at 8 I do car #1 in the parking lot and #2 follows. Once those are done I'll be able to take a deep breath. Monday night at the GM Preview I'll have toast for you, then Becky, then Kyle, then Robert
