We had to hurry up and finish everything before the shop closed haha so I didn't get to adjust the fronts down. The tears are cool for now, but unless reverse rake comes back in style..... Haha. Enough jabber :





I'll be adjusting today and will give the car a nice wash and proper photos tonight !

As far as he install goes, it was pretty smooth, cause of the helpful tips from the write ups and advice from the homie Terrence.
These coils were listed as 08 xD coil overs, did enough research and ordered them. Bought the last set for 299.00 shipped. Seller was taking best offers so I offered 100 under his listed price. They are shock length adjustable and coil perch adjusted. I have both the collar and lock perch maxed to the bottom on the rear, but I left the shock length decently long, and have a whole bunch more to shorten if desired. The fronts are shock length adjustable as well, and coil perch adjustable. I evened the lengths and coil heights, but today I will be lowering the fronts enough to completely close out the gap.

Overall the coils are what I wanted with he exception of no dampening adjustments. But for 300 bucks shipped with included end links, I couldn't complain.

More pics tonight.

Always down to help the homies man! Especially when it comes to the low ;) Shit if I was local i woulda been with you installing them thangs lol. Looks GREAT the homie once you get the fronts adjusted and some wheels you'll be golden! Yin yang with my ride lol. Let me know how adjusting the fronts go! I haven't touched mine since I installed them. I was adjusting height with preload like a noob. Now preload is set correctly so I want to lower it the right way. Just been lazy to take the fronts apart to do it :/

For sure man ! I'm here at my boys shop, about to bring the fronts down some ! I'll post after pics

Lowered it about another inch in the front. I'll see how long this will last, I may just wanna go maybe a little more Han half an inch all around.

Looks real good G, but an inch lower (or two) won't hurt nobody

Not so cool updates, but updates none the less lol ; got a hold of 09 interior for 20.00 that was used for a little over a year or so before being pulled out for spec b circuit racing. So they were in really good shape ! My stocks were the once black with blue polka dots, now turned navy and showing nice signs of wear. Followed the DIY on this and it was a breeze.







I plan to go after market front seats, maybe f1spec or a nice replica set of brides but for 20 bucks, why not !

Wow. Super come-up and it looks fantastic.

On an interior related note, is that the Micro Image arm rest?

honestly i wanted to ask someone if they knew where my armest had come out of.
when i got my car, it was already installed.

EDIT-
it is the micro image armrest! it makes me happy considering they arent being made anymore.
i also saw your post about re-wrapping it, as of now, its still in really great shape, and the storage options are awesome!
i honestly wish i could have caught on to micro images items before they shut their doors. some great stuff they had.

Yeah, man, yours looks in great shape.

Micro Image was a cool resource. Garm aka Cali Yaris still visits the forum and sells some stuff on his ebay site.

As long as it's the same thread pitch it should work bro! Idk how far the xD sticks out compared to the Yaris one though. I should have copped that microimage armrest when I had the chance! Damn it haha it looks better installed than I thought.
