Copy-cat. LOL

BTW why did you go with BC's?....
I talked to Mike (Fig) about them and that's what I decided on.

I didn't like the responses I was getting from TH, so I was looking to buy coilovers some place else anyway.

They have been great though. My only complaint is the height. The shock body is screwed all the way in to the bottom mount on all four corners. So I don't really know how I can go lower without making the preload LESS (having the spring sag).

Looks good Corey

Yeah yeah. Now I just need to get rid of the black gaskets right? :lol:

Yeah I think the front is fine really. Unless I run more negative camber, I already rub a ton on the fender. The rears just need to be at least half an inch lower.



... I bought LS 400 calipers today...

Have to say Corey your a bloody inspiration mate :) I love the time that you put into your project.

I have to thank you again for helping me out with ofsets etc on my 300 (going to be doing some more extensive fender mods soon so i can push the vsxxs right out)

Keep it up man!

Damn Corey, I am so evnious that your car is coming together fast when you have the parts. LOL, but seeing your stance is making me anxious to get mine together :)...now to search for Lip Barrels tho ;)...I am thinking 1" wider in the rear and front, keeping the inner barrels...would make a perfect set up on on our current wheel specs
(pre calculation tho lol...and if not DDing the car anymore lol)...but we will see :p

lol I just wish the install would have went more smoothly. But whatever. It's all on and I can drive. Just need to take care of some rubbing and I'm good!

I wish I could get wider lips :( My wheels are welded together so I'd have to get inner AND outer barrels. And at that point it'd be just as expensive to buy new wheels...

But definitely get your car together and then see what you want to do. My car is never gonna be finished :lol:
