Not so far. Lot of clunking from the motor. I guess I didn't need to take the heads off to do the springs.

You were a lot of help. Esp, when I started to melt down about the gap that was supposed to be there anyway. lmao

Thanks.

You talked me into handling my own kit!

After watching your video and posts I have decided I am going to tackle this same task in my own garage. I am a recently converted motorcycle to car guy. I know jack chit about cars so it should be fun. Thanks for the inspiration.

PQ, I may have missed it but did you get her aligned and were they able to get it back within stock settings without needing any eccentric kits?

Well, you remember that the dealer wanted 370.00, well I took it to Big Ten tires who said they would do it for 80.00 but he told me to drive it for a couple weeks and then come back. He wanted to let the springs settle. So I go back tomorrow. I'm thinking it may be a problem. Everyone wants to run from this car. lol

Of course not. You are more than welcome to. Use the pics how you want. I've sent a number of members toward you guys. I can't be happier with the equipment.

The side by side picture I posted a few posts back is actually one picture. Easy to move around and I think it shows a perfect example of the drop. Should you want to use it, go right ahead, in any capasity.

Taking it to a different dealership on thursday. he said the alignment specs are the same as stock but just have to see if they have enough adjustment room.

Easily noticeable difference in curves. If it's placeabo then so be it. But I don't think so. It's 'sits' better while cornering.

I agree that it is much better in cornering after upgrades than it was stock. The lower stance I think is much nicer, I have received many compliments about how nice it looks now.

Quick update on the alignment. Had Big Ten tires do it. They didn't have a problem but of course my steering wheel sits off to the left a bit.

They did say it was close, but had no problems getting it aligned.
