yes sir, sorry for not seeing your comment earlier. I plan on running coilovers when the season is closer as i just installed my lowering springs in June. but for now these are the changes i'm making first as they're most important to handling, i know camber is as well but it will come in the future once i dial in everything else and see how much adjustment to camber & toe i'm wanting.
