    After 2 hours of work (and half an hour of trying to figure out how to get the jack out from under the front of the car), the JIC Magic coilovers are on!

    always carry some pieces of 2x4 with u in case of fuck ups so u can get the jack out from under the car (roll car up on the 2x4s). i did that when i had my 97 Civic when i had the coilovers cranked down. they are life savers :)

    Not a bad looking car. I would like to see some pics of the JIC's before and after the install, as well as the suspension on the car. Can I get some of those?

    Too much...

    Mods are like crack to me. Hell, I'm saving money because I do most of the work myself (dealer wanted 8 hours @ $72/hr to install the coilovers - not!)....

    lol, it rained out here .. in Virginia, I totally got 1 single drift. .... it worked. I was super happy .. but it was super fast, and a lot of wheel turning, and i came out of the drift in like .0005 seconds. lol.

    Nooww .. next time it snows, i'll mebbe know how to get better drifts, and I've located nniiccee open parking lots, where snow and ice can just build up. hehe.

    Snow. I've never seen it! I've lived in Florida my whole life, and I never want to see that damn white powder. Why don't you move to florida, and then you can drive your S2000 anyday you want!
