How the hell should I know!? I'm asking the questions here.

But yeah, Rally mentioned them earlier in the thread so I was just curious. Did you ever get that alignment? Did that all go alright? Did you do rear control arms?

yeah, I've had an alignment done, no problems there.

and yet to do the rear control arms... I actually just passed up my mileage for warranty work, so now any parts going on will be aftermarket upgrades

Sounds good dude!

And S-Curvz don't feel bad, Konky only let's his hetero-lifemate Drew drive his car.

Haha, I didnt know it was a drive being offered.

I honestly just want to see how the car rides. I am moving out west, so hopefully the lack of road salt will help with coil overs. That was the main reason for not doing them in Ohio.

well Pittsburgh ain't any better, if anything, I'd say worse! I just make sure to clean them up every season.

and I can definitely take you for a ride... driving it is still a possibility too

That would be great. If nothing else, I am looking forward to meeting some of you in person. I actually saw your car parked out side one of the buildings where my friends room was. Looked great them, I cant wait to see the new wheels.


Better?

Mine were bouncy when the dampers were set almost to full stiff over rough roads, on soft they were smooth like butter.

It also depends on what rim/tire size you have. On 205/40-17 you could feel every bit of the road. On 205/45-16 it was soft and comfy.

You won't have issues not running camber plates. They do provide a good handling improvement and help prevent the common strut tower mushrooming issues the MINI is known for.

And they look PIMP under the hood!

im on the pss9's and on full stiff it sucks for daily driving. kidney busting/teeth chattering i wouldnt constitute it as bouncy or bumpy.... more like every crack, bump, undulation of the road is interpreted thru the car since it doesnt give. it just stays parallel to the ground. freeway overpasses? fuggedaboutit

now when thrown full soft... amazing. feels like a cadillac and is gf approved. i like to run it 6 front/7 rear. seems to be my personal favorite for ride/comfort vs. performance. that's the best part about having damper adjustability, so many options to toy with for most terrains.

im curious about the teins... with the edfc. (in car adjustablity)

chase? care to chime in?
