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.
Glad to hear it went well. Maybe next time you can show me the difference. I wasn't able to make it due to work. I was under the impression you guys would only do it at night.

Alignment went well. They said that we installed the springs right so there was no problems there.

Went to 3 diffrent body shops this afternoon to get a quote on my little bump on the bumper. Quotes started at 500 and went to 600. WTF.
Might have to wait till someone hits me.

surprised the alignment didn't cost more than that. I had mine done at firestone cause they offer lifetime alignments. I knew I'd be keeping the car for a while and would be making more suspension changes.
