    very nice Wes, great write ups! I'm just about done my suspension build up too, I can't wait to completely finish it all off.

    1 question. Obviously you didn't install them with stock springs, but do you think it would be possible to install the camber plates without coil overs and not increase the ride height? I noticed that you have to cut a spacer sleave to install them so I'm wondering as I don't want to go to coilovers for a few reasons.

    Thank you! Thank you! Those are great writeups. I feel like even I could pull off the install on those mr2 AGX's now.

    I think you are going to get some ride height no matter how you do it. I thnk someone posted during the Camber plate GB that you will gain 1/2" installing the plates as is. Using half the spacer would bring it back dowm 1/4 " so you would gain 1/4" at the most. also you are only going to be able to get about 1.5 degrees of camber with the stock springs. They are too large diameter and they will hit the strut tower, this is the main reason I got coilovers is to be able to make full use of the camber plates.

    Great stuff there - one question though - what is the free length of the front springs ?

    What is the price of the coilover kit from Paradise or 935 ?

    Cheers

    Great writeups Wes !

    Can't wait to get home and check out the rest of the articles !

    I especially like that rear susp article. Often wondered about the subframe bushings. Did you feel much more harshness after the bushing install in the rear ? I guess its all relative, and if it made a difference on the autox course, what else matters, eh ? :wink:

    Go Mr. January !!
