Over the weekend I installed the Steeda RMM. The install was relatively easy and strait forward. It took me about an hour and a half with the car on jack stands. If you install it yourself make sure you have ratcheting wrenches, without them it would have taken twice as long. There is a little bit of added vibrations but I kind of like them. There is no more 1-2 bang and shifting either up or down has a much more positive feel.

I also installed a Steeda rear sway bar and end links over the weekend. With those mods, this is how the car should have been from the factory.

Excellent advice!
