Be sure to rotate your tires when you change your oil/filter.

After reading through this post, I'm convinced i can definitely do this myself to mine as well. I'm thinking of putting this on my long list of To Do Projects. Assuming i read the post correctly, I can make this happen with FRPP Springs and FRPP Shock/Struts right?

Before FRPP

After


I will say going from stock suspension to the FRPP, small bumps in the road seem much "clunkier".

But that may also have something to do with the fact that I went from brand new Continental Contact DWS tires to Hercules (??) tires.

Very Nice!! The gap between the fender and wheel Really bothers me. This upgrade is definitely on my "eventually" portion of the To Do, but man i can't wait to (hopefully) get this done.
