Great looking build! Are the width of your wheels 8.5 inches? Did you have any issues getting a shop to mount 275's to them? I want to do the same thing on my 8.5 inch 19s when the factory tires wear out...
Thanks! They are the factory 20's so they are 9.5 inches wide. No issues getting the mounted and plenty of clearance

Got the vertical links installed tonight. This is by far the worst install I've done yet. Took me a little over 2 hours to get the driver side in and about 15 min on the passenger side. I'll be doing the toe links in the morning.

Got the toe links installed today. Took about an hour. Very easy straight forward install.

While getting the car aligned today I noticed one of my steeda jacking rails had a run in with something. Luckily it was the jacking rail that took one for the team and nothing damaged in the car.

Could've been from the cruise and near miss, since you happened to have "borrowed" the majority of the road/road sides during that moment.

True not sure how long it's been like that. I've been under the car several times since then but haven't really looked at the rails.

Today I decided to check my factory plug gap. Everything was between .49 and .50. I gapped everything to .50. Also added antisieze to the threads because of the nightmares from my 07 gt.

It's been a while but finally have an update. Just got my koni yellow shocks and struts in. I'll be installing Saturday.

Shocks and struts installed. I have everything on the softest setting and will adjust from there. Haven't drove it yet. Alignment not scheduled until Monday.

Did a little test spin on the softest setting and much less bouncy than the stock gear.

I drove around with all corners on full soft the last couple days and really enjoyed the ride. Car felt much more planted in hard turns and on launches. Now have them set to 1 full turn on all corners. I'll try that got the next few days.
