:wow: Mr. Arrows, you're fast!!! What was that, like a 1 hour turn time?!?

Some people could learn a thing or two from you :eeps:*coughcyberkaacough*

Thanks for the awesome pics as usual!

so did you guys finish all 3 cars friday? :wow:
Yep...started at 2pm, finished in time to get to Milpitas meet at 10 lol.

There were only 2 major snags....when dropping jay's front control arm, the spring was still loaded and pushed hard enough to pop the joint out of the front swing support bar. This was at like 7pm on Friday, so no parts departments were open. Then, I discovered we had a really easy fix for this....... I still had one in the kitchen from Alfred's car after we parted it out. :rofl:

The other major hold up was at the very very very end.... we thought all was done, but my front passenger side was way up in the air and we couldn't figure out why. Turns out the coilover wasn't seated all the way in. We ended up having to unbolt the whole thing and re-installing it.

But yea, 3 car suspension orgy got done in 7 hours.... got confusing in the middle as to which car needed to have what done and what parts were where?!?! :lmao:

Sick ass verts....Just wondering what kind of coilover/spring you guys use to drop the ride. Thinking about droping my car now after seeing those pix.

Thanks for all the compliments!

We swapped my H&R Cupkit onto Jay's car.

Then from another car, we swapped the H&R Coilovers onto my car and they are sitting at about 1/2 way down right now. I'll be dropping it more in the next week or so, just waiting for new brake pads to come in and I'll do it at the same time.
