Got some more shots as the install starts to wind down... Almost done:

Here's the real need for a Hotchkis Panhard bar... It's hard to tell because the pictures aren't great, but the broom I put down because the axle shifted over about 1/4". Really noticeable by just looking at one side, then going to the other and checking that side out. You can see the first picture, the wheels are closer to the fender (driver side), but there's a gap between the broom and the wheel on the other side (passenger side).

Stock stuff going out:

All gone!

Another comparison:

All done on this side:

On the lift:

Time for the upper control arm. Rear seats come out first so we can get to this bolt you see in the center:

Stock on the left, Hotchkis on the right:

The lil guy is going to be put back in in that spot above the diff.

Almost there! Pictures once it's off the rack and all done!

And now it's finally time for one of these:

I'll be giving my full thoughts once I have a few days to drive around and see how I feel about it, but since I've been on cars before with coilovers, I know how they're supposed to feel. I've had KW's before, so there's no surprise, excellent as usual. The one thing I did notice more than anything else was the lack of wheel hop through 1-2nd gear once getting on it. No more hopping around, everything was smooth, and the power felt like it went down a lot harder than it did before, so one serious thumbs up for Hotchkis.
