Very informative and detail pictures. great job


How is the coilovers working for you?
when you timed the bushings which bushings did you timed?
Did you also replaced the sway bars? If so what brand?
Can you PM the price for the coilovers?

Thanks a lot...

You're ride looks sweet and I am trying to decide on what I am going to do with mine.

So what was your total amount of drop? Do you think with a diferent offset on the wheel you could stay that low and not rub with 315's?

I bought 295's, had them on for a total of about 10 min. and took them off. They were too small and I liked the 315's better. The offiset i have with the 315's is great. Brings the tire right to the inside of the rear quarter panel. Love the look, but ended up raising it a tad all the way around. After it settled it was way too low and hit on too much stuff. Now I have the bottom of the fender 28 1/8 from the ground all the way around.

The coilovers are doing great. I get a lot of compliments on the stance. I also raced on the track with them and they preformed great. I timed all the bushings and I have eibach swaybars. The coilovers are $800 local pickup.

Hey!
How did your car perform in the infield at the speedway (in the pics)?
Was it pretty balanced?
How much neg camber did you run?

Did you have any brake issues?

Have you been to willow springs or buttonwillow yet?

No, I have to buy them from Megan then sell them to you. They sell them to me at wholesale price. I can ship them, you'll just have to pay extra for the shipping.

Try to do an event at "the streets of willow" ...the small track.
Very technical track....elevation changes, off camber turns, banked turns.....
great to learn on.

Did you break 150 on the speedway straight? Gets scary on that bank huh?
