    That was a good day for sure. This is the aftermath - post-motorstadt. He passed the fuck out in his car, on his driveway.

    Welp, found this on the rear, so I gotta order some sway bar end links.


    The bolt that goes through the bottom of the rear struts are stuck. I mean, fucking stuck.
    -Lots and lots of PB Blaster - Check.
    -Propane torch - Check.
    -2' breaker bar - Check.
    -My shitty, Husky impact - Check.

    Couldn't get that bitch to even move, so I went to my friends.
    -His impact gun, which we were running nearly 200ft/lbs wouldn't break it.
    -Acetylene torch. Got everything hot, I mean real hot.
    -Then we tried a longer breaker bar. They wouldn't even move...

    New plan of attack - Get new bolts and get my cutting wheel and drill ready...fuck. Gotta wait till next weekend.

    We did manage to get the front coils on, and dropped them as low as they'd go.


    Doesn't look that low, because of the enormous wheel wells and only being 16" wheels.


    It's actually pretty damn low though.




    Tomorrow I am going to see if I can get my new lips powder coated. But that's the current status.

    This has been a headache. It took 5 failed attempts at an alignment and a fried pair of Falkens before I decided to raise it up 1.5" and just get it aligned so that I can drive it until school is out.

    I snapped a couple pictures before raising it up. The toe was off 5.5˚ between the two front tires, so they would screech going in a straight line. Unfortunately my 16" wheels don't really fill the wells nearly as much as I'd like. It was as low in the front as the Raceland coils would allow, too.

    I think I'll get beefier tires when I replace them. I'm not sure exactly what to do at this point, but I'll resume the project when school lets out next month. The bump steer is unbearable not, so I'm trying to figure out whether I need to cut down the bumpstops, or invert the tie rods with a heim joint. It's nice to have it aligned nicely though. The car actually has a lot more grip int he corners than I thought. I've been riding on snow tires since I bought it.

    I have the new lips powder coated and ready to go.


    Unfortunately the place that did the alignment couldn't get the tires off the rim. So that's the next issue to resolve. (205 on a 10" wheel).

    The offsets are going to be a little different than I thought. There will be an extra .5" of poke in the rear.

    And the rear goes lower than the front - by a lot. These are 15's.
