    Eibach springs installed!

    Yay. Finally had some decent weather and had to swap tires anyways so I figured BAM lets do the springs. Not very difficult overall - crappiest part was get the seized sway bar link nut off but it finally caved.
    Love the new ride height. Suspension feels 'stock' while driving over my bumpy pot holed roads but when I'm cornering on an on-ramp man do they shine. Almost like no body roll compared to stock.
    Me likey!
    Only thing I learned was you have to jack the ENTIRE front end not just one side or there is way to much tension on the sway bar and makes it damn near impossible to get out of it's home.

    2Jr midpipe installation coming soon (stupid seized nuts). Hidden Content
    Eibach pro-kit spring install SOON
    Custom black FMIC create/install sooner rather than later

    Gen2 boost controller/gauge/f'erupper still in the works (if you don't know it find it or go away)

    I loved my $200 lowering springs on my 2012. Good upgrade back then. Not many had coilovers available at that time.

    They got traded in too along with my dual outlet exhaust. So someone has them.

    I have been riding on these springs for the past year. They were great at first, but now I wish I would have just saved the time and money and gone for coils...

    Yep you do save money. They work. Coilovers are a great option but for some its the $$$.
