Do you drive in cold weather, or only the summer or someplace it's warm year round? How much do you want to spend? Is noise and comfort more important, or treadlife, or performance?

If you drive...

You should be fine with studs on only 2 main caps...that said, for uniformity, it'd be a good idea to go all stud. As for torquing them, ARP calls for hand tight, so just thread them in and then snug...

Probably a result of quality or installation. I'd never run any electric pump other than a Meziere. Same thing with fans, low quality fans won't last long. Cheap crap electrical anything will fail...

True, but at least it's separate from the pump shaft bearings, so if it goes out it doesn't ruin the pump at the same time. I do like that the Mezieres are modular though, and you can replace...

If you're going to spend $200 on a water pump, might as well spend a bit more and get an electric from Meziere. Their electric pumps last for ****in ever it seems like.

I don't think Mike at his new shop will even be handling the Bilsteins, I believe he's using JRI exclusively.

The classics are terrible for the price. Don't believe me...ask someone with a shock dyno who has actually measured their ability objectively. They're wildly inconsistent, their damping control for...

Konis aren't that great, they just live off their name these days. Back in the day they were good shocks, and on mild applications they do ok; but they're not a modern monotube gas shock, so they'll...
