    Ordered a set of KYB's, hopefully they'll smooth the ride out a bit...

    Finally got the KYB's....

    That has been the biggest pain in the ass to get. I originally ordered them from Amazon (Just Suspension) and that was a huge mistake. I got a refund for the fronts and re-ordered them from Jeg's (Ebay). They told me 2 months to get them even though they list 10 available. I cancelled the order and re-ordered from another Ebay seller, only to get some seeping GR-2's. I finally got a set of Excel-G's from another seller on Ebay.
    Seems the fronts are on backorder from KYB, so they are tough to get.

    The ride seems better, but not as smooth as the original struts/springs. I think it's going to take a little getting used to...

    Now the next projects....

    S/R wheels
    Power windows
    Sport seats (need the rear bottom cushion and driver's seat)
    19mm sway bar
    and get the pcm reprogrammed....

    Nice and clean. Do you park with ample distance between you and the next car?
    This is the only view you should see when on the road with my S/R!

    It would be except this is paint challenged... It had a clear bra on the hood and bumper (long gone) that did a lot of damage.
