    custom. :D


    im using the existing ones, which is what KYB recommends. ill have to drill the boot hole a hair bigger, though. ill also sandblast and paint them some vivid color much alike my calipers and drums.

    stock strut mounts. why would i have to change them? i will have strut tower braces, and i may make some sort of "comptech" bar for the rear.

    dont need camber plates. im only dropping an inch. these cars dont sit as funky as civics do, i have a bit more room to play with, and my front end is semi-adjustable.

    Sooo.... where's the turbo stuff? This seems to me more like a suspension build then a turbo build.

    uh, yea.

    no sense in putting on the turbo if i cant get the power to the ground. im stuck on saving to move out instead of buying an safc2 and some other junk i need. ive already got the turbo and the manifold should be here anyday.

    its ok noah. id still take you in autocross, NA anyways. :lol:

    april 4th?? Thats gonna be difficult for me.... I'm working 3rd shift in bloomfield from the 1st to the 14th.... Maybe... I dunno... I'd have to stay at my sister's in west hartford, and I won't stay there unless she lets me park my car in her garage... I'm not leaving it on the street in west hartford.

    thats totally understandable. i hate leaving my car on the street also. :D

    there is another one 2 weeks from that one. i may or may not make it - front suspension/tranny/oil pan gasket may be in the way.
