This is what I spent my weekend doing...

Man this was some serious work when it came to the joints, the suspension upgrade was the easiest most fun ever... but I kinda came to a halt when I saw this...

I forgot to get this now I can't rock my new suspension until a few days from now! but here is a sneek peek!
Once again please don't mind the dirty car...



Let me remind you of what wuz put in...

And the Tokico Illuminas that are not pictured prior installation.
Now auto/manual swap here I come!

Are those H&R race springs? Very curious as to what that will look like, been thinking of it myself. That sucks on the endlink. Control arm mounted swarbar FTL.

Supposedly the sportlines do 1.8" in front and 1.5" in back while the H&R race springs drop 2.0" in front and 1.3" in back. (according to Tire Rack)
