Thanks everyone!

So I swapped out suspensions today.
In went the stock setup on all corners.
Plus I put the 17s back on.
WOW!!!
I feel like I am driving an SUV now.
Must have raised the car 2in+.
Wheelgap is hurting my eyes.
Also finally mounted my front plate with zip ties...first time the car has had a front plate on it!

Now I got to figure out all that other crap...

My car finally passed emissions today!
Woohoo!
Only took me 2 years to do it.
I guess I never had a problem with my OBDII port, just some crappy computer at the other garage.
I won't be seeing her or the classic for about 7 months.
Off on a road trip to Colorado, where I will be working all winter.
I'll be planning on things to do for the summer...

I am going to be living in Alma, working @ Breckenridge.
There is a snowboard shop in Boulder that I am going to visiting a few times, All Board Sports.
I'll give you a shout when I head down that way.
Do you ever head into the mountains to ski/snowboard?

Sweet mate! Yeah, I ride, but not too often. I snapped my Ride Kink two years ago and haven't replaced it yet. I want to go a fair amount though, and the girlfriend loves to ski/ ride too. We'll have to get together at some point for sure!

For sure!
I am going to be on the slopes almost every day.
Wish I had an extra board for you.
Well, I do, but they are alpine boards, meant for carving.

Thanks Rally.
Just arrived in CO today.
What a drive...
Drove though Ohio, and stayed in Columbus.
Did you get your name from the Rally's Burgers places?

Wheel thoughts for next year...

Rota SA Racing(?) 16x8 +20
Click the image to open in full size.

or the Sportmax 501 16x8 +15
Click the image to open in full size.

OR, get some wider arches like Glen and run the Sportmax 002 16x8 +0
Click the image to open in full size.

Was thinking about going to 16s, I think they fill out the wheel well a little better.
Allthough, still love my 15s....
Thoughts anyone?

I always loved the styling of the 501's. The offset is kinda hard to pull off, but probably do-able.

it looks like you want that 2pc shiny lip look, but rota also makes the grid in a 16x8 +20 i think.

With the red grill, I thiink it will look pretty good.

The Rota color is a little off from the Chile Red Grille, where the Sportmax color seems a little closer.

Not really sure how the black centers and red lips would look.
I think its a 50/50, could be really nice, could also be really hideous.

If I went with the Sportmax wheels I would seriously consider the wider arches like Glen has.

Good thing I have all winter to decide...
