    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 !!

    The bushings made a huge difference, I'm suprised you havent done that already. My noisy diff is alot noisier now too, well actaully I can just hear it better :-) Hopefully the TruTrac and all new bearings in a few months will quiet that down a bit. But the car feels alot better especially in trasitions and when you loose control it is much easier to recover. All the mods I did made about the same difference as switching to R-Compund. A buddy in ESP and me were always within a few tens of each other all last year, one weekend he would be faster the other it could be me. Well this weekend he had R compound and we were still pretty much neck and neck the whole day, he won by about 2 tenths.

    7" front springs is what comes with the kit.

    Both places are about the same price it comes down to shipping costs probably 935 is on the West coast Paradise is on the east coast.

    hey wes i know with williams install he didnt use the top perches from the coilover set as he used the top perch of the stockers. Now you used the both of the top perches, my question is how much lower do you think you could go on that setup with both of the top perches installed?

    my top perches were diff and i had 8in springs. with just the stock top perch the spring is higher up on the strut housing at the same ride hieght and clears the tire nicely. i was under there yesterday and ther is a lil over an inch between the sidewall of the tire and the threaded collar. so i can run up to prolly a 9in wheel in front with no probs. although itd prolly stick out in the front. but an 8n wheel with +15mm offset should fit the front fine.
