FreeFocus' SPI Build and Mod Thread

Well guys...I don't think the mounts were the problem. I think it was where the one piece(can't think of name) was dented in at. So got that hammered out and put back on.

Had the guys at the shop compress it down for me as my spring compressor was to big. So I will be returning it as I didn't even use it...that will pay for my front end alignment. Used a torque wrench for the first time. Had to good how to use it...lol

Old ones had some wear.

Last but not least, I just had to put a rim on to see what it looked like. Only fair since the wheel was off and it was jacked up. Don't laugh at the towels.

I WAS DONE!!! The stands were under the car the entire time. I had to take them off to get a better picture of that the rim looked like geez. And the jack was all the way down. There was no pressure on it. I was safe with everything I did. I wasn't under the car except to chsnge the oil last night.

Nothing was hitting the mounts.

In the above pictures where the spring was rusting. That was dented in for some reason and got that hammered out so the spring sits all the way against what it should now. Have to wait untill the rain to know for sure. Glad I did it myself and not pay an arm and half a leg for it.

Ah, so the cap wasn't rubbing anywhere - but it had been bent prev. so the spring hit the edge instead of settling into it smoothly.

All cool now is great.

Thanks man! It still seems pretty normal to me, nothing too special about it. The car was a great deal so yeah next car is a stick.

I am dying to get the rims fixed up and put on in the spring in time for some meets and other things. Rims change the appearance, that's for sure.

Yep hit the mashed in piece out, hopefully that solved the issue, no need for new mounts. Had to take it all apart anyway so may as well change it.

The guy said it was made like that from factory? Which is odd to me...why would they do that. But they were identical.
