I have this problem with my suspension, like when it goes to a road hump the back end has this annoying sound.

I have them upgraded free if you still have the warranty.

No, it's not weird, because that's what I'm doing. I'm buying the upgraded strut mounts and strut bearings, because the dealer "could not duplicate." Time is also money to me, and I don't have a lot of it to waste taking the car back hoping they'll hear what I do.

Got the Injected tuning device Saturday morning and running the 87 tune with Shell 87 E10 for MPG / performance testing. Love this thing.

After a month or so... I'll add an intake if they update the tune to accommodate for more air flow :)

That may be the decision maker.

Just finished installing Eibach Sportline springs. I hope that the springs along with the Whiteline sway bars will be a nice combination. Tomorrow, the Toyo T1 Sport tires will be here for my 17" wheels.

Are your wheel covers dipped? They look really good. Whole car looks good with the drop, though. Me gusta

Yep, I painted the factory 15" wheel covers with Plastidip.
