One the way: Raceland coilovers, Hard Dog roll bar, those Rspeed lips.

Nice!

And yeah, those racelands go real low. They're not bad for the price.

Do like I did and leave out the helper springs if you want to really slam it. You'll have to anyway thanks to the thicker axles on 1.8's. Mine are about 3mm from the new axles now.

Will do. I'll have the coils in by Friday, assuming UPS delivers on schedule. I'll post some pictures up when they're in.

Racelands are in, but fenders are not rolled yet. This is where it's sitting right now.

The rollbar came in today, so I'll be putting that in this weekend.

Damn i like this!

Make sure to get some rubber washers for the wink mirror to cut down the vibration.
