I'm loving my silver car more and more now. Yes, I'll still be washing the hell out of it but at least it won't show as bad as on the Vista Blue.

It's a fact that I will be spraying down my car every single morning before I leave for work. Pollen really tests my detailer's OCD.

Well we got the springs and caster/camber plates installed. Sometime in the next few weeks we'll have to get all the tunable components installed.

Just for kicks we set the caster/camber at maximum negative, should make it a fun ride lol.

Can't thank you enough Clint. It was a long day but we got it done. Couldn't have pulled it off without you as foreman on the job. Rides great, LOOKS GREAT, no noises, only one small fix... the dust shield on the pass front was scraping a bit making a racket. Bent it in a bit, and voila... perfect.

I'm going to get it aligned sometime next week and then I'll get started on the bolt-ons. I figure it will only take a few hours before I start texting for your help lol.

Clint helped when we did my entire suspension a few weeks ago, it is definitely handy having him yank on all those bolts under the car that don't want to come off!

How long did it take you guys to finish everything up? Hopefully it wasn't as long as our all day affair.

I honestly think Clint got some sick, fetish-type pleasure out of watching me do something wrong for 3 minutes, then doing it properly himself in 10 seconds lol.

Took the better part of 7.5 hrs. :-/ Fronts were a real chore. Royal pain in the @$$. Installed MM CC plates as well. Rear springs were a breeze. Thank god Clint brought MC Hammer with him. That one tool helped us tremendously although at one point I had to resist the urge to hit myself in the face with it.

Yeah, I'd rather do S197 front springs over and over and over than do one set of SN95 springs.

I call BS unless pics are posted of said lowered car btw!!!

Yeah we busted our tails for 10-11 hours and never took a single picture! I will have to take pics of it once I get time to wash it when it's not dark out (gotta love night shift). I put the CS grille and fogs on so now all I need is some RTR's and I will almost match the other Steve lol <--that's a joke, I am not putting RTR's on nor am I trying to match his car =)

Crap, that's the side I worked on lol. Not sure what my plans are this weekend but if you decide to start tackling any of those items give me a shout and I'll see if I can clear out some time.
