Depending on the mileage of your car, while you are there on each corner, check to make sure the inner/outer lower control arm bushes are in good shape. In addition, if you have not already done so, you may want to replace the radius rod bushes as well. Energy Suspension and Moog make 'stiffer' then OEM, if that interests you?

Well here it is decent weather finally came to Minnesota and was able to pull the car out of the garage for the first time sice November. This was my project for the winter wheels/tires/suspension. Im still waiting on a new RSB the car felt really sloppy without it on there but i couldnt hold myself any longer and had to go for a quick cruise down the street, also there is some rubbing going on in the back i posted a picture on the back tire i think it could be raised a little but what you guys think?

So lately i have been trying to dial in the rear suspension, i had them almost all the way up so i wouldn't rub i also went the cheap route to try and roll my fenders with a rubber mallet i know it sounds bad but i actually got good results. Still havent got the sway bar yet so going around turns i got to go slow but should be by friday ill have it and an alignment too

looking good..

be careful playing with that new suspension ...that back end likes to get squirrely if you push it and suddenly have to let off throttle or brake......
