Here's the spring comparison. The OEM springs get preloaded much higher than the H&Rs.

Venture1 Hunted down that pesky 20amp GEM fuse for the power door locks and replaced the blown one with a new one. My temporary fix on the shorted wiring in the rear hatch is holding for now. I will do a full rebuild of the harness in the next couple of days.

What doofus thought it was a good idea to hide that fuse on the back side of the fuse box? There are lots of available spaces on the front of the frickin' thing!

Cheers Boys and Girls!

stuff1138 I did the upgrade of the sync software today to 4.4 on my drive to work. It's nice to be able to see what's playing via bluetooth on the display now.

Someone may flame me for not being accepting or whatever... But the wheels on the Miata did not fit if you ask me.... The accord wasn't a favorite either and i usually like those.

In a Focus group Installed my H&R Sport Springs and KYB G-Tech struts and shocks on the wagon yesterday. It lowered it about 1" all around. The handling is much improved at low speeds but at highway speeds the rear end is all over the place! I have it in the shop for an alignment hoping they can get it straightened out. Stay tuned.
