Edit: What suspension did you have on the car this weekend?
My race lands. But they are coming off once my other suspension gets here. I don't like the slammed look myself but if you can be slammed for 5 months why not Bilstein fronts are on national back order my rears/springs sitting in the garage

asap, it's driving me nutty that I have all the parts and they aren't on. I'm using stock zsp springs, euro spec M-sport dampers and mechunik lowering spring perches.

I will admit it did look pretty slammed but I thought it looked great. I hate when there is to much - camber and your car didn't have that.

If I can get it worked out at work, what do you think about Sunday? It's literally driving me insane having all the necessary parts sitting around...

Pending fiance approval it looks like we're going to have a little tech session for dampers on Sunday. Who's interested in making it a little meet?

Yup, my apartment garage isn't huge but it's supposed to be a nice today so we can pop the garage door and hang out while we all pitch in and help Jeff install his stuff.

We're good to go (been approved). Let's finalize a time, I think 10am would work best. We can start working for a bit, then eat lunch, and then finish up.

Let me know who all is planning on coming.

10am sounds great, I might be out a little earlier than that to get all the parts organized.

from what I hear we can probably knock out the rears before lunch then have all afternoon to mess with the fronts.

That sounds perfect. It would be nice to have the car up in the air before anyone else arrives.

Yep, also, I can bring extra jack stands, and I have an impact gun if you don't have one too.

I found that it was nice to upgrade my suspension and brakes before I did power upgrades that way I already had a good idea of how the car handled/felt before I threw more power at it. That's just me though and my car has a bit more juice out the box.

I have 4 jack stands so we shouldn't need those but an impact gun could be nice. Which one do you have?

That's what i'm thinking. I'm no street racer and would rather have the handling down pat before I get myself up to 290 at the crank.
