Well, I was in Belgium for two weeks and ordered some goodies while on the trip. Anf when I came back last evening, there they were!
Anyone guess what they could be?













:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

The ScanGauge was a birthday present (B-day was on the 10th)
And the KYB AGX struts and P1 springs I orderd myself. Total for struts and springs was $623:)







Be jealous:p

Installing the struts and springs today hopefully!!

Well, the fronts are 4 way adjustable. 1(softest)-4(hardest) and the rears being 8-way adjustable 1(softest)-8(hardest). No doubt 1f/1r will give you a softer ride than 4f/8r. But the harder setting you have, the better handling you will get. But then you will have a very bumpy ride. I guess people typically have them at or around 3f/6-7r for DD and 3-4f/8r for autox/track?

Well, an update on the suspension:
got the two fronts on. While trying to take the top bolt off on the left rear stock strut, my ratchet broke.

i have that suspension. it is awesome. its cool to be able to adjust the settings.

f.y.i. if you have a rough roads around you you are going to want to keep the seetings pretty low. and yes at full stiff settings it is pretty bumpy, not coilover bumpy, but still pretty rough.

have fun and be careful with the new suspension

Well just put all four on last Wednesday and I love it! Right now I have the settings to 3f/8r. It's bumpy, but I like it! Cornering is so much better than stock. With the stock suspension I found the car struggling a bit to take sharp turns at moderate speed. With this set-up, it takes it at ease. I took my first corner and the car hugged it so clean. I thought to myself "woah, maybe I should go a bit faster." And I did, nothing changed. It stayed with the corner throughout! I love it.
Recommend this set-up to anyone who doesn't want to spend an insane amount of money on suspension. For the price, you can't beat it!

I'll take a picture tomorrow to show how much the P1 springs drop the car. it's not too much, but it's noticeable
