Phenomenal quality. Only small gripe is that they do not come with new nyloc nuts for the strut top. Not a big deal, probably cost me $1.50 for 2 but I'll hand carry one into Ace Hardware to verify the threads since I don't have a nut in my bin that matches.

We put the coil overs and LCAs on Mike's car, we got it at around a 26"-27" ride height and it handles like it is on rails already. Panhard bar goes on this weekend. Torque arm will be later once he gets some subframes.

That Viking stuff looks nice, man.

Damn. Too late. Already in the car.


Had to carry one into the hardware store to get the thread size for the top mount. Good thing, damn thing is an M16-2.00.

Not sure how this is going to work out once everything is right asnd aligned. Sure looks close to the away bar links.

As the suspension compresses, it should move away from the link.

It just might. I didn't think to put a jack under the arm and lift it.

They're just put in place but the bolts aren't tightened yet either.

Gonna have to wait until I get home in July to finish it up.
