That's fucking bullshit...in Maine they allowed me to get KMAKAZE (!) which was pretty insane considering how conservative we are up here.

I used the vanity plate thingy our dmv has and V1-1993 isn't taken! I'm psyched to put antique plates on it.

Did work. Been dreading this install but sucked it up and went out to the freezing cold garage.

First item up on the agenda; weight. OEM Steel lower control arms vs. Alloy's. I've been reading a lot of nonsense, so I decided to settle it:



OEM is about 11 lbs. as the scale is off by a smidge.



This looks like 8 lbs., but it's more like 7.5.

If I tilt the phone, it distorts the number so I tried to capture it straight on for most accuracy. Both of the lower control arms were loaded with bushings and the anti-lift kit was installed on the alloy ones.

At any rate, the JDM alloy ones are around 3.5 lbs. lighter then there OEM steel counterpart. Decent.

Did some things:





Still pretty stoked this thing just bolts on.



One side done, after the other side is complete I head to the alignment rack.
