First box from RCE made it in. Still waiting on the shipment from Bilstein and Whiteline to start installing. Should be here today or tomorrow.

Excellent thread and pics, I enjoyed reading it.

I am 100% behind you on your modding philosophy. Subtle changes is what I like doing too. Great job!

Are you installing the Bilstein's yourself? If so, do you have a source for the torque specs? I just got the same kit in the mail and am thinking about just doing the install myself.

Great progress so far on your car. Looks amazing.

I am going to call Myles at RCE this morning just to make sure I have everything in line/spec'ed before I put them on. I'll post it up.

Talked to Myles and there isn't a specific torque setting. Don't blast them with an air impact but crank them down pretty good.

Front Bilstein/RCE yellow setup



Rear Bilstein/RCE yellow setup

Side profile doesn't look all that different as the change is roughly 15mm. I am going to take some tomorrow though...so I'll post it up.

Much more controlled so far. We are dialing in the alignment shortly so I'll weigh in after that is complete and I get a mountain run in this weekend.

Just finished up the alignment.

Front Camber: -2.5
Rear Camber: -1.5
Toe F/R: 0
Caster: 7 degrees

The car completely RAILS now. This was my perfect setup. Thanks again to Myles at RaceComp for the suggestions on what would be best for my conditions. A couple more bushings to replace but I am incredibly happy with the car right now.

I am running the stock top hats. The Bilstein/RCE setup makes the front adjustable from -1 to -2.8 without the need for any additional parts.

Stance on the new suspension.

Keep in mind...how low my car was with this modification was a distant worry. The was a performance first mod that is paying huge dividends already. Ideally, I actually didn't want the car to come down much at all as I use it for mountain biking and a slammed car would cause issues in that area. According to RCE, the car comes down 15mm with this setup from stock. I am assuming the springs need to settle a little bit so this is the highest it will be. I can also adjust the rear down some more if I want to as it is in the middle height position.
