Are you on stock springs and struts currently? If so, that's impressive for the classes your cars would be stuck in.
Yeah, stock L springs and struts with 155k miles on them. I always wanted full out race suspension and figured it would be pointless to buy anything other than that. I try to buy the right parts the first time because of my OCD :lol: One of my tires are rubs now because of the body roll

I can't argue with that :lol: I think the rubbing is more due to your tires than it is the actual suspension. Another guy near me runs on 225's and rubs even with his Gymkhana springs.

BTW, your 5 spokes are 16x7 :)

Today I finally made a coilover purchase. I figure these will hold me over until I move up to JRZ or AST/Motons. Upgrading from 155,000 mile L suspension :lol:

KW RCE Tarmac 2 coilovers w/group N top mounts

Since the spring rates are really low that come with them, I went ahead and bought Hyperco 400/380 springs from Rokkit (Mike) as well.

Made a ton of progress this weekend thanks to the help of friends. Hoping to have it running in 2-3 weeks *fingers crossed*

Still have to install the front coilovers, re-install the heater core, customize the radiator hoses, and other small things.
