with 9s all around the +35 would be decently flush all around. they could probably use a 5mm spacer though depending on how you like your rubbing.

Haha, so you want the whole procedure, huh?

Lift the car up, take the wheel off, jack up high enough so you have plenty of room to work. Get some support for the rotor. You're going to need to unbolt the nut that connects the shock to the trailing arm (had a lot of torque on mine). The rotor should be free to drop, so remove the support and have a friend step on the rotor while you get a pry bar, jam it into the spring coils and pull the top of the spring out. The spring doesn't need to move far to get off the perch. Just yank hard with the bar and it'll come free. Then yank the bottom perch off the spring. The top perch will drop out.

nope.

i'm not going to say though.

ahha jp. i took the spring pads out. they make noise but i don't really give a shiet.

my plan was to sell my hr sports for some hr race and pull the spring pads but it woulda been an uber uber dump esp since i'm on 17s, but since i dd my car it woulda been really a *****.

since you have race maybe take out just one pad (either the top or the bottom) i don't suggest you take both out unless you want a really uber uber slam.

how often did that actually work?
