    He didn’t even set the camber in the rear. I nailed it almost dead on. Just had him set toe and tighten up some bolts and that was it. They don’t call me eagle eye Ron for nothing. C3C50431-4D64-49D4-9B6C-39DD75877C68.jpeg

    Out of spec in the rear but that’s where it was before and I like it.

    I was something like a -6 when I installed the rear camber arms.

    It took the shop over two hours to get it aligned. Fortunately, the only one in town that can do lowered cars is five minutes away.

    Clutch delay valve in your slave cylinder. There’s a thread in the diy section on how to do it. The brace is pretty much for aesthetics but I love how it looks on the car.

    So your car doesn’t feel anymore stable or responsive in corners?

    Yes. But I have an upgraded sway arm, a rear truck brace with some other suspension mods in the back. The brace was put on afterwards so I couldn't really say that it made a dramatic difference. I honestly just bought it out of impulse as they were trying to clear out their old models so they had them for cheap.

    First page updated.

    Got everything I needed to finish this sub install. I’m kinda going the easy cheaper route but we’ll see how it goes. From all the research I should be fine.

    Finished up my sub and it actually worked. Shout out to the guy on YouTube with the gigantic bags under his eyes. Just tapped into the rear speakers and was good to go. Still have to clean up the wires a bit but finally have some bass. Also how I ran my power cable. EB0E3791-A28E-4C69-9E5F-2DFDCFB3B884.jpeg 6307588D-B8A0-4F0F-A868-87E7DB1F9442.jpeg

    Cars e85 so I don’t really drive it far except up to Orange County. Aaa free towing can get me anywhere I need to go to get it fixed. If I drive it farther I just throw In my extra full size spare.
