That had to look crazy. Your front already looked jacked up with those replacement springs. Anyway, it'll look better when you get them all on an they settle a bit, usually a few days to a few weeks.

You have any problems with the bolts?

Nope! No problems what so ever. I heard the front would be harder than the back. The back took me and my friend 2 hours or so. The front took 1.5 hours. lol Since I replaced those springs last summer (we always use never cease on everything) it all popped right out. It went together very smoothly.

Yep I finished. Around 3 pm I was driving it home. lol I drove it around alot today. While my gf was at work I did alot of running around and testing how fast I can go in different places. This kit made my car 1000 times more fun. haha I didnt get any pics because I was so busy and pressed for time. I will get pics first thing in the morning, dirty never-cease handprints and all. lol

Never seize is great stuff on suspension parts. Meanwhile, I dropped one of my painted handles on concrete this morning, get to strip it and start over again. Are you going to Evansville this weekend?

Awesome. I thought it was going to ride like crap, but it rides way better than when I first bought the car (front 2 coil springs were broken). It doesnt really feel that different. Just when you hit a big bump. Its hard to describe, but its nothing to worry about. and taking turns are way funner now. lol
