Gadabout 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.

DarderSauce 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.

Gadabout 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?

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

It won't be low enough for you and 1.5" is not that much. It's basically perfect IMO

Can someone confirm, I'll need Castor plates up front and camber bolts for the rears correct?
Your welcome, glad to help, Choate. No you won't need camber plates for the front, & I doubt you'll need camber bolts for the rear. Just to add=, I have -1.6/1.7 rear camber w/ a 2'' drop & a 2 degrees negative camber for the front w/ no tire wear issues. Just make sure your toe is set at zero for the front & +0.10 per side for the rear. Check the tire inflation & rotate your tires ever oil change.

I am going lower in the very near future as the 1.5" doesnt seem low at all.
I have no issues w/ 2'' drop.
