New stuff.......:D

Decided to make the change this last weekend from the stock struts/shocks & H&R springs to this setup......

Eibach Pro-Kit (Shocks/Struts/springs) with Vorshlag front adjustable camber plates. Swap went fairly well with the exception of forgetting how the camber plates were supposed to be oriented.

Anyways, happy so far with the handling as they complement all the other upgrades I have done on the suspension so far (rear subframe poly inserts/front-rear sways. Now to find a GOOD alignment place that can do a good alignment with corner balance. If not, then i'm rolling to K-town to see Klaus Peter at Schafer Clubsport.

Well Rikx, Elsabor and I might have faster straight line cars than you, but you will still kill both of us in braking and handling with that M!!

Nice. Can you provide the model numbers for the Shocks/Struts?

Much appreciated

To me it looks the same but a bit more level. I think the struts up front are a bit shorter I think. I'll take a pic this weekend.
