Hopefully installing the springs tomorrow. I finished my LED conversion and now the only lights that aren't LED are the headlights.

This LED reverse Cree bulb finishes my conversion. I installed resistors for any bulb that blinks or changes.

I also ordered a custom shift boot from Maciej over seas at redlinegoods.com. I just kinda set it in there for mock up. I actually need to use some glue to get a perfect fit.The boot is charcoal perforated leather/black leather, with blue, and silver quadruple stitching. He makes the best shift boots around.

Took me all day and a trip to the dealership for strut bearings. Mine seemed to grenade :( I stopped by Karl and got some adjustable front end links.


Saw this sweet RS while I was there too.

Installed Whiteline 24mm sway bar. Also had new tires installed. I ended up with 245/40/18. The tires are Dunlop Direzza Z101. So far I live the increase in handling.

when it's wet out, can you get some good old fashioned oversteer in turns? with the lowering springs + R/F SB?

Along the front of the headliner. I just used a screw driver to press it in

Not sure yet, as it hasn't rained, but I unhooked my box (10" subs) a few times already going around turns too fast
