It's cool man. If it is really as easy as everyone says then it shouldnt be that bad. I've looked at alot of pages on "how to's" so i feel pretty confident about it. I tried to get hong in on it but he is being a weirdo. Something about "never" or something. Sorta is silly how i help his ass install his fmic taking the whole weekend to do that then he says no when i ask for his help. Hum... Maybe it's just me.

Hey, if you dont mind doing it at your place that would be great. That garage is still a mess. If we do it tomorrow, what would you need me to bring other than springs?

A friend of mine is selling her Black 06 STi. She has babied it since she got it, never raced it, and has pretty much taken care of it. I have her phone number and everything if anyone is interested. She wants to sell it for around 29k. She only has 15k miles on it. It's super nice. I looked at it (not in depth) but I can if anyone wants me to.

Yeah 29k for a used STI better be a turn key pushing 450+awhp.

I'm not negotiating for her because quite frankly, I don't give a rat's ass. I'm just posting if anyone is interested. If you are, then I give contact information and YOU can do the bartering.

Problems!? LOL! Yea more like being a total noob behind the wheel, backing into Jon's buddies car

Not to bad on the damage side should be a pretty cheap fix most ppl dont even see it until you point it out.


As for the spring install, not to bad. The back ones were the easiest to install (springs werent as crazy comming off). Stiffened the ride up just a bit not to stiff, not to springy, juuuuusst right! We took it through some twisties in derby on the way back and i noticed some reduced body roll so that's good. Hopefully i can get in somewhere tomorrow to get an alignment. I was thinking subaru since they really know the correct camber adjustments and what not.

I think i will take some pics of before and after here tonight or tomorrow. I'll put them on here.


Thanks again Jon for helping out and lending your tools that was really awesome of you. If you ever need help or an extra hand with anything just let me know.
