Hmmm, your car was likely riding slightly higher and firmer than it should have been. The spacer in this pic was put in place for shipping the cars over here. It was supposed to be removed during the predelivery service at the dealership when the car was new.



Nice job on the installation.

lol wow thats pretty crazy though, it was only on that one side on that one coil so that might have been the squeeking noise i was hearing on that side because now that i have the new coils on i dont here it so it had something to do with my old coils like i suspected. but thanx

Well with shipping and california sales tax it turned out to be 900 and some change, but how does it feel compared to stock? i went straight to the harshest damper setting im not sure if your supposed to break them in first or what but its ridiculous i had to turn it down because i was getting car sick but i did hit a 25 mph freeway on ramp at about 60 and felt pretty good about it. its a good handling boost. now i just need to do sway bars.

thanx the wheels are sportmax 006's 9.5 rear 8.5 front i have spacers for the front too to make them even but im riding so low now in the front i might rub if i space them so i'll have to roll the fenders before i can.

lol you would be surprised how much you can do with axe i had a crusty nut on there i sprayed with axe and it loosened up, i took my cat to the vet once and it threw up in my car and i used axe and it came out stain free, also it removes sharpie and other perminent ink as long as it hasnt set in. but yea how do i go about getting that custom title and what is it anyway?

its not hard just time consuming. but yeah if you have the money to buy them go for it. i bought megan's i know they arent the best but i was on a budget at the time and still am, i plan to upgrade at some point. but not soon. but i'm waiting on the shop they have some cars ahead of me, so like 3 weeks and i'll be turbo.
