Interesting idea.....
You are not picking up what I am laying down.

I mean backing up to a parking block and the mud flap can mess up the fenders.

I ordered coilovers last Thursday. They showed up on Monday. I went to coffee last night with a buddy until 9:30. Got home, wife and kid were asleep. Stayed up until 2:45 installing them.

What a PITA it was to break loose those bolts on the lower strut/control arm mount. After 8 years and 120k miles, the previous owner clearly never did anything with those things as they were STUCK.

Nevermind such details. Car is low and looks good.

They were just the normal black ones. Now running the carbon ones.

Putting down 421whp 457 torque now. We are guessing that its actually higher then that but the dyno is reading lower then normal.

Butt dyno tells me that it feels WAY faster then before. My guess would be 440/470 range honestly.
