Post installed AGX/Soft TEIN springs. DAMN that rear strut nut!

I finally got my shocks in and installed the stuff tonite. All I can say about the looks of my suspension is that santa came to my house early. Green springs and red struts. Sheesh. Oh well, I'm not complaining. I puked in the middle of the install too! What a way to remember the lowering of my car huh? Hahah..ugh..I still feel it. But yea, those tires are ***** now. I feel the car riding the sidewalls now when I hit a corner hard. Yokohama A520's anygood guys? Maybe some Nitto's. Nevermind, I can still read the threads about the tires.

Oh that rear strut nut on top is a BEEEYACH to take out! I don't know how long I was there with that damn ratchet! Grrr.. Thats all I have to say about the install. Everything else when real smooth.

Just because I know I'll be swapping suspensions in the future, I replaced the third nut on the rear that is hard to reach with a regular nut and a lock washer. This way I could tighten or loosen by hand once it is loosened.
BTW, those two rear nuts took me over 1/2 hour when I was installing my springs.

Yea, thats about how long it took me. I used an open 12 to get to it. And since I was constantly staring at it, I kinda got tunnel vision. Bah! I'm done with it. I'm never touching that damn thing again!

dont know if you can get these in the US but Bridgestone SO2 PP are unbeatable for grip, a close second is the TOYO Prozess P1.

I used to swear by yokohama A520's but they are hopeless compaired to the above 2 tyres.
