I'll bet you could talk him out of those wheels and tires for a bargain price...

You guys have done so much great work to your cars, it's great to follow along in your builds.

Maybe "Speedy" needs to start a build thread for Motivation and call it "dreams can come true".

I'm just saying that if you raise or lower the car using the coilover adjustments, it changes the alignment.

When I first had my coilovers put on, I had the car aligned. I didn't quite like the ride height after a couple of weeks (it didn't settle on the coilovers as much as I thought it would), so I dropped the car another half an inch or so. I took it back to the alignment shop and it needed to be realigned.


I'm anxiously awaiting your build thread, hrpiii...

And the strut has to be taken completely off the LCA at the bottom to lower it. Pain for just a show. Which is why I want to be sure of the height before I tighten it all. Which I beleive I'm gonna leave it like this.

Oh, I know that. I've had it aligned enough times the shop is gonna think I'm crazy. hahahaha But I need to make sure I like the height before I do that.

I'd be more concerned about them being square than about the weight

After some spirited driving it really feels good. Now I haven't had the chance to do some 'test driving' so I could be in a bit of a placeabo situation but I'll know tomorrow. The XAs were pretty good already. I could swear the ride is smoother.
