Sets of 12 at $9 a piece? Damn that's stupid. The boots almost cost you more than the axles.

I would hit up the track guys on FJ such as hEat, Omnifocus and terrible1. These guys know what they're doing. Otherwise you might be wasting alot of money and time on stuff that doesn't work or isn't needed. Worst case done wrong could cause you a failure that would lead to an accident.
well, yeah, this is for when the Kraken gets built for MSR's track

its gonna be a while before i get into that.
but i want racing seats, so harness bar is the main "interior" piece i want. lol

Technically a strut is a combined spring/shock assembly in one putting the spring on a FIXED perch above the shock. A coilover has no strut but is also an assembly combining a spring/shock assembly in one but with the spring perch being adjustable usually by means of a threaded shock body. More or less the same thing serving the same function just diff designs and therefore terms lol.

Would be fun to drive the MSR track. Get the car up to speed pushing through turns for a couple laps at a time.

Autox is cool and all but you're only on the track for a single lap and usually done in less than a minute. High intensity short duration.

Guess I'm out for awhile. Gotta go give an employee evaluation and then run some errands in this crazy wind.
