Short Springs Worked, I decided to go with a softer spring rate. No problem there.

Front bumper came like that on my car... I haven't touched it.

Was told it would fit until I got it and he wouldn't give me a refund.


where's a fail icon when You need one ...

I didn't see any issues with that, the springs were something that no one had documented before so of course there's going to be trial and error.

The wing I've already sold and didn't even lose that much money, it was unfortunate, but I was told by the gentleman who sold it to me that it would fit my car, it wasn't until after that I found out it wouldnt and he didn't want to give me a refund.

Just following your leads.

- let's buy these short springs not knowing how they are going to work on the car; or

- lets buy this red paint and spray bomb my bumper so it looks purple and pink; or

- lets buy this rear window spoiler that actually doesn't fit my car; or

what else.............................


I at least knew they were performance orientated subframe bushings, and if Justus and Joe were doing it that's good enough for me.


^^^^ This right here
