I said you should. Mine sounds great with an axle back and handles better with the new springs. Minor costs, for much better driver feel and no comfort lost.

If colton wanted to not drive 3 hours for the bbq, who cares. Ted works and schools on Thursday's, plus is buying a house. Quit judging people and what they do with their life and time. Just do what you want to and continue on.
tl;dr

Your other cars were pieces of shit when you bought them.. The mods didn't make it worse. (yes i'm including my old civic in the category. I admit i fubar'd that car)

You have a clean stock car now. doing tasteful mods will not ruin it.
