Hi Joe, just want to say your car looks really nicely done with all the mods so far. The springs does make it much nicer than oem.

Looking at your car's photos making me itch for mine to arrive.

Thanks mate.

If you are free on Saturday, drop past Advan Performance, I will be there and there should be a few other 1M's there also.

Hi Joe, Car looks great. I've always thought that the 1Ms looked kind of perched, a bit like a Subaru outback.

What serial # springs and how much if you don't mind my asking?

Glad to see that the ride is okay, you never know with suspension changes.

Thanks gazz.

These are the H & R Sport springs, part No 28910-1.

I ordered from Vivid Racing in the US.. They are on special at the moment for $298US for the set plus delivery. Normally $460 a set.

Here is the link..

http://www.vividracing.com/catalog/2...&c9=6048&r=203

Allow a good shop around 2 to 2.5 hrs to install plus wheel alignment.

Thanks Mate. Deffinately.

When you line them up alongside each other, it's like night and day.
Once I saw Another 1M with the drop, I had to have it.

Hi Joe, How much was the shipping if you don't mind me asking? I completed the order form & it showed $469 for shipping so I backed out.

Yeh... You are better off shipping through an external source like http://www.shipito.com/

I was fortunate enough to have a mate include the springs in a rather large delivery, he was having sent to Oz..

Raws weren't too bad, but the edited ones were killer! Worth framing

That's LSP for you
