  • I just did font suspension today...

    I have H&R race springs which have been cut. The drop is supposed to be like 1.5 or something so I was expecting more then I got. I lined up the springs side by side and the h&r are easily half the size of stock springs. When I put them on the strut housing all I had to do was compress the shock. I thought this was weird but it was all tight and installed correctly. I had to get my brother to lower the car while I lined up the spring in its perch because there is 0 pressure from the spring untill the shock is compressed. When it was all said and done and on the ground there was no drop difference. The gap from the top of tire to fender is about .25-.5 inch gap. So Im like what the fuck. It is stiff as hell but no real drop notice. Did I do something wrong and dont realize it?

    Tomorrow: Rear suspension and all new EVO rotors and HAWK HP plus pads.

    Sorry for no pics yet.
