The stars aligned with a day off, and my pump/res install got pushed off since my Intercooler lid gasket wasn't in yet. I decided to just go to town in my garage and knock the Eibach spring install out on all 4 corners. All in all it took me about 5 hours, but I was going at my pace, and ate lunch as well. It also coincided with the fact that the 305/30/19 experiment I went with (and hated), had come to an end. The extra width didn't help as much as the thinner sidewall destroyed my traction. I decided to go with the Stock size Continental Extreme Contacts all the way around and I am already amazed at how much better they hook. For a 285/40/19, these things hook great at my HP level.

The only issue I still have is that I gave the shop the custom alignment specs for a lowered Sedan and they wrestled to get it dialed in for FIVE HOURS. Yes, I sat there for that long, and it STILL isn't dialed in. The shop manager offered to have me drop it off again next week and he'll personally drive me back to work, get it perfect, and then pick me up. The technician said every time he would get one side dialed in, it would push the other out of spec. I felt bad for him working that long. They'll make it right though; I'm sure.

Anyways, here's my only action shot since I was paranoid that it would take me into the wee hours of the night and I wouldn't be able to drive to work the next day :-)



And the new height. It's amazing what an inch all the way around can do (that's what she said). She looks sooo much meaner to me now.

The classical COX inhibitors are not selective and inhibit all types of COX.

Yeah they're pretty good here. If I was in Michigan or up North I'd have stacked the stock and lowered springs on top of each other :lol:
