I got my coilovers in! I did mess with the ride height a bit more since these pictures I raised it about 3/4 of an inch.

Before



During install



After (I raised it alittle bit since)



I ride overall is equal or even slightly better than my bilstines. Mind you that I have the dampening set fairly soft as it is my summer daily.





I also got my strut braces in.





And I got my SS lip protector on.



Overall very happy with them!

Pretty big update that I have been thinking about for awhile.



I ordered new wheels! 19x8.5 +30 offset.





They should fit pretty flush with the fenders now



I won't sell or get rid of my stocks they are way to hard to find as nice as they are if/when I want to return to stock.

Got my wheels on! It looks so great in person! The fitment is perfect. Also glad I went with 19's. I did raise the car a bit because I do not want to roll the fenders.













The stock look was a great look but after 4 years I just wanted a bit of a change. I won't sell my stock wheels though. But for now I really love this look!

Got it aligned again after re adjusting the coils for the 19"s. This thing sits perfect

Beautiful weekend, went to a car meet. I also got a foam cannon I will use later this week. I love how this car is set up and looks now. I am very pleased.

i'm awaiting your input on the foam cannon. i bought a power washer and left out buying the foam cannon. i wasn't sure if it made washing the car any easier or not for the extra money they cost.

Funny you ask that, while it looks cool and may be nice for a dusty vehicle or something to be honest I don't see myself using it all that much. It uses ALOT of soap and I don't see any real added benefit over a regular proper hand/bucket wash.



But I did finally find a tire shine I really like. It lasted a week and a half and it was raining for a few of those days.

Minor update, after I put in my rear strut brace the carpet didn't fit correctly which was driving me nuts so I trimmed it and re glued it down.

Before (sorry for the terrible picture)





After all trimmed and glued

I got some things done over the weekend, I installed poly engine mounts from intense racing. Defiantly make a big difference and not much more vibration from what I can tell.



I also installed a new fuel pump, the old one was a bit weak and with 270k miles she was due. (sorry no pics of this). But here are some photos I took the other night
