How do you cap off the end so it doesn't look ghetto. I honestly don't care about signal because I only ever use my phone to listen to music.

over the years you learn how to get what results you want for the best possible price. why pay $10+ for something i can have for free

as for the springs...i guess until you ride in a car running them you won't know how good it really is lol
