My DAILY DRIVER thread

This is my DAILY DRIVER, so mods are not crazy, more visual for now, keeping maintenance up is more important right now. Add mods as money comes.







next up is gloss black vinyl over the chrome window trim, as long as I can find a shop to do it, I tried but failed, I'm very impatient. Also need to 3M polish my headlights...badly

could be several things, control arm bushings, endlinks, struts, etc..

H&R race springs will drop you nicely, or their cup kit, or even racelands

Replacing shock/struts and springs will cost you more than Coilovers. Coliovers with new monts are plug and play.

Why would shocks/struts/springs be more $ than coilovers? Most COs I have seen are $800+ although the racelands seem to be $400, I am guessing the is bc most people have their doubts about them?

And springs/shocks upgrade isn't plug and play?
