LoL need springs baaaddd. SSCs are a good one to consider too if you're already looking at sportlines.

Nice to see another black 5spd coupe.

I like how you kept the junkyard lettering on the lower control arm and strut. Yellow crayon blends in well with the pink.

I'm kidding of course, good job, wish guys were as daring.

Yeah, the bodyshop installed that on insurance after I got hit by a rogue tractor trailer wheel/tire coming off of a rig while driving down the highway. That was the FE1 struts anyway. It's sitting on FE5's now. :)

Why are you running staggered tires, quite a few of the pictures look like the front is sitting higher than the back (may just be those springs I guess). Not to mention then you can't rotate them.

Well, they aren't intentionally staggered. I started out with 215/35 but found they are very problematic in the city. I had to have both driver side wheels repaired from large cracks after finding a pipe in a hole left by the city of Atlanta for me. The front tires were an experiment to determine if I could protect the wheels from the roads more while still staying relatively close to stock tire height. (205/40 doesn't really help all that much, FYI) My next set will be 225/45 all the way around, but I don't want to just waste these tires. Unfortunately, this car sees less than 8k/year (less than 10k in 2012/13 combined actually), so it is taking a long time to get my money's worth from them! Right now I have a supercharger project going, but tires will be next after that is completed.
