Well not really any updates...

Finally got my Moon Face Super Lap ball joints pressed in. And Installed them.

I was also going to install my Ikeya rear subframe spacers...

But as you can see in that picture, I have 6 out of 8 spacers required some how... Ordered new and I never took them out of the box until last weekend. Still working to sort things out and see if I can get what I need. May be SOL...

I've been having issues with my front tires lately. Basically my front alignment is bad, KILLED my front tires, one kept going low over night. Went on vacation for a week and came back and one had basically debeaded sitting in the garage. So I'm over it, pulled the wheels off, swapped my OEM arms for the old Cusco's, raised the car (and was going to install the subframe spacer but obviously couldn't do that).

So back to winter mode about a month and a half earlier than I wanted. Lots of decisions to be made over the coming winter months...

As you can see, my front alignment was junk and destroyed my tires.

I'm tired of stretched tires, worrying about debeading and worrying about bending a wheel. So now I have to decide if I want to stick with the Blitz or not lol
