    All on, RARB, springs, strut brace...

    Me and mate Daz off z22se fitted the springs, whiteline RARB, bolted up the front strut brace and gave her an oil change, oil filter, and fuel filter.

    The springs were ok, not a bad job to do, the rear adjustable ARB was p!ss easy, got it on the 2nd to stiff setting, she is now just over 3.5" off the floor, it will drop further once settled hopefully.
    The ride is 200% better, no roll, feels like its on skates, bit hard but not much.
    Look at the comparision!!!


    Before..

    after..




    Just to prove i did get my hands dirty...




    Look i'm flying...

    Alot better, more together, stiffer, the car goes where i want it to go now, instead of sliding or jumping, bit harsh, but to be expected and livable.
