Yah.. fixed rate..

fronts a bit more than the rears..


cut the front a full turn and the rears about 3/4 of a turn..

dropped the car a little more than an inch....

We are going to let the car settle for a couple of days and the evaluate where it is..

The car drove just great on the way home..

and the Cold Air Intake gives the car a very nice growl as you accelerate..

Still need to do something with the exhaust to please the idle minded..


Note for ivan.. double wishbone.. front and rear

Hm. If Steve has something to do it with, you should measure your spring rates for future reference.

Mmmm... double-wishbone. How's the camber looking? I'm assuming you're waiting for the springs to settle before you put it up on an alignment rack, but slap your bubble gauge on there and let me know!

For exhausts you can go with either Borla or Corsa, both should be good
