nope it's cracked like that. unfortunately that's how i bought it. it really doesn't bother me much because i love this car regardless. haha. i told you i need a new one soon.
Oh yeah I forgot.

Get the same kit I did! I always hear that ebay springs arent the best if you use just the springs. Ive heard they are fine if you get lwoering struts and shocks as well. But of course, just ask anyone who has ebay springs. lol Thats the best way to find stuff out.

Yeah im a bit curious as to how my car will ride. More like nervous I guess. There is alot of potholes on the interstate and a few big bumps in my neighborhood. Its all hills here.
