Suspension Upgrades

FINALLY got around to installing this pile of stuff.

Of course it didn't go as smoothly as I thought, took all day, but damnit it's done lol.

Installed:

Koni Orange Struts
Koni Orange Shocks
Eibach Pro Line Springs
BMR Adjustable Panhard Bar
J&M Caster Camber Plates

Forgive the pictures. Cramped space around the carport.

3.73 gears and rebuild kit, Steeda diff cover ordered and up next.

About 1 inch in rear and 0.8 up front. It's a modest drop, but I wanted it more for performance. But getting rid of some of that wheel gap is definitely a plus lol

Nice work! I think I want to do your exact setup. You definitely did it the right way, no shortcuts. Please update us on the ride quality and performance after you've driven around more.

Thanks! The ride quality is noticeably rougher, but not as bad as I expected honestly. Got it back from the alignment shop today so the pull I initially got is gone.

Very livable for a DD. Takes corners like they're nothing as well

LCAs, relocation brackets and UCA are next on my list. While I don't "need" them, they definitely will help.

Got the struts, shocks and springs from a member for $500 flat. Then about $129 for the panhard bar and $200 or so for the CC plates if I remember correctly.

Looks good, that is the same drop I had with the Vogtland springs on my 2010 and for me it was perfect. Probably doing the same on my 13 next spring.
