Nice write up, can you rate the ride from 1 to 10? 10 being like stock?

I'll rate it a 1 cause its totally different from stock its totaly sporty feeling but in a very good way. My stock suspension was supper mushy and comfy but that's not to say the setup I have now is bad in any way.

How long did it take? Besides the ks port coil overs did you have to or do you recommend replacing anything else while doing this job?

Honestly took me kinda long like 3 days only cause I wanted to make sure I made no mistakes as things could get very costly as you know everything on a F50 Q45 is $$$$$$$$$ and I def did not want to screw up the front strut/hub assembly, I made sure that the correct amount of material was left in place to make sure that the sway bar end links where placed exactly the same height as they were stock and also had to make sure the clocking was also correct so that the sway bar end link would not bind at all when turning full clock to lock positions.....and then welding on the extra tabs that secure the brake lines and ABS sensor lines.....so it was some work not to mention that the rear needed to be studded with the stock top mount studs but in order for that to happen I also had to open of the holes to 13/32" to allow for a proper press fit.

p.s. nothing really I could recommend replacing just check for worn items, my sway bar end links appears to be worn though.
