Yeah i just bought a hid light kit. I really like the sway bars, i have them on the softest settings. I had the rallitek sways before this and they didnt seem to do to much but the perrin sways really stiffen up the car and make it handle really well. I recommend them!

Looks good as always vinh!

Without getting this thread locked, any reason in particular?

Also, your wheels look good; +35 doesn't poke out as much as it does on the earlier years.

guy that sold me the torques never told me two of them were bent. you can only see it when they're on a balancing machine so i had no idea until after buying them. i suppose the whole experience left me with a sour taste for rota's. what's even better is, i took a rubber mallet to one of them and managed to even it out a little. if a mallet (0.5kg?) in the hands of a bony 160lb person can bend them, i'm not surprised at what a bump in the road can do.

learning my lesson, i decided to get some quality brand new wheels for a bit more money. in the end, i look at it as an investment as i can always sell them since good wheels retain value (e.g. rpf1's).

thanks for the compliment

For those that have epic springs, were you able to get your alignment close to the factory specs or do you need camber bolts and plates?

Are you trying to avoid negative camber?
