I got the wrong parts from import image. Them had to fight with the so called customer service rep. It took me sending josh multiple pm's threatening bad user feedback to finally get the correct parts.

The calipers themselves are probably made out of recycled plastic.

At best we could hope for that, but then again when you are buying a set of $35 dollars shipped from china 6 pot calipers what do you expect

Well, they really only have to stop rickshaws, so they don't have to be nearly as high quality as real brembos.

19MM swaybar and end links ordered from Boston Motor Sports, good deal and Dan can get them to me by Monday. Ordered springs from Race Comp Engineering, and those should be here in 3 weeks. Who wants to help install? I'll provide beer and pizza. Anyone know a good/trusted place to get an alignment. I cringe at the thought of bringing my car to a firestone or town fair.

Go to Fast Track Automotive in Peabody, MA (right near you actually) for the alignment. Scott will align your car to whatever specs you provide and he'll do it right. I just got one there this Tuesday.

Don't worry about it until you do springs.That is the only time that you are altering the car's suspension geometry.

Do all the work first and then align.

I run -2 camber up front, and -1.5 camber rear. 0 toe all around, and caster isn't adjustable. I love the way my car handles at these settings.

However, I run camber bolts in the front and adjustable lateral links in the rear to get these numbers. You're more limited in camber in stock form.

A proper alignment really wakes these cars up. A world of difference.

that's what I hear.. upgrading the sways/endlinks really helped but i think a proper alignment would take it a step further. I'll probably wait for springs but it's been a year so I could probably use one anyways.

I always look here first for a part. If I buy from another vendor, its because dan cant get it. I ordered a sway bar and end links 2 hours ago and they're already shipped for delivery tomorrow!

Nice man. I have seen the car in person. The only issue I know of was there was some damage to the fender but I think he got it fixed.
