Looking good. It was a hot weekend for car work. What did you put in there?

My car now has:

Steeda UCA
J&M Adj. Panhard (Steel)
J&M Caster Camber Plates
SR Lowering Springs
Koni Orange Shocks
Koni Orange Struts

Only issue I'm having right now is that the passenger side strut is squeaking like crazy on everything gonna have to figure out a replacement or something.

No more nose dives and lurches when taking off and stopping? I might try the Eibach shocks, struts, and springs when I do this. After the Procharger of course...

Yea, the car is so fun to drive around corners.

The squeak is so bad. It's like 4 squeaks per second average because it squeaks on the slightest 1 degree difference on the road lol... Trying to get a new one at the moment.

Update for anyone who wants to know:

Finally got the RMA replacement from Koni after a long 2-3 weeks. Oxford and I swapped it out just now AND THE SQUEAK IS GONE!!!!

That insane 70 squeaks per second strut is out of here and the new Koni Orange is silent as can be.

I was hating my car the past 2 weeks. I just fell in love again.

Glad it all worked out for you, I just installed mine last night and no squeak in the rear struts.. We have the same set up other than a uca and cc plates, I went with gt500 mounts and no uca but instead got my lca. Does it make a difference getting the uca too?

MPT TUNE, Borla S-Type, Airaid Cai, Ford racing X pipe, Mac ceramic shorty headers, 2010 GT500 rims, 35% tint, Sr Springs, J&M phb, camber bolts, blacked out side markers, front and taillights.
