I still want a set of the SES wheels or maybe the black rally wheels, but the snowflakes don't bug me as much as they used to.

I put the frpp shocks and struts on my 2008 about 100k miles ago after being fed-up with the bottoming out of my focus on every driveway or speedbump in my path. Never been happier with any mod on any car. As soon as I put them on I felt like I was driving a 4-wheel drive vehicle it felt like a brand new car. Still lasting strong, I actually think it raised the suspension. I have over 150k on it now still as strong as ever, now if I can get rid of the rough idle I'd be happy.

Seriously, its just a tool rental from being assembled, compressing springs is easy peasy work.
