    Just finished buttoning mine down... they're fantastic and a piece of cake to install!

    Sorry i can't give any driving feedback, my car is still on jackstands doing a header install.

    That's literally borderline inhumane to tell us that....but all is forgiven if you give us your impressions

    And they're on! Install was pretty easy. About an hour. Toughest part (this happens with any shock mount) is compressing the FP Track shocks enough to get them in place. They have a pretty darn stiff low speed compression, which is great for handling but it makes installing shocks interesting! Definitely requires some brute force. Getting the bolt through with the spacers and o-rings requires a little patience but isn't difficult. The rest is cake.

    Onto the performance....
    As expected, the ride is notably more supple and controlled compared with the stock mount. I've experienced this with other mounts too. The shock is actually allowed to do its thing, respond instantly without some rubber getting in the way, and no bind during arm articulation. I haven't gone over any surfaces yet that typically cause a little bit of bounce, but I will be sure to update the review soon with that. From a handling perspective, all the things mentioned above also contribute to a more planted and responsive car. Cornering over bumps, it's definitely more settled, less perturbed. Transitional handling seems a little quicker and smoother. I should also add that there are no noises to speak of from the mounts: no clicks or clunks of any kind. 0319191652.jpg

    Dumb question and just out of curiosity but with the increased shock travel, would you use stock length bumpstops or still trim them?

    I kept my trimmed stops but you could easily use stock length.

    Those look like they would work just fine. They are PTFE lined, so they should work well.

    When I installed my SP080 springs I did not trim my bumpstops in anticipation of these mounts being released. With the springs and this mount, i still have a net gain of .50" shock travel over stock. So that's why i left the bumpstops stock.
