Default Thanks to pleiades/Flat4inRC and mostly WJM! (Spring install = awesome)

Hey guys, just want ya all to know that I finally got my Prodrive springs and KYB's installed tonight. The drop is just perfect and it handles so freaking much better now. I owe a big thanks to WJM cause that man can fly through a strut/spring install. This man knows his Subaru! And thanks to Flat4inRC for the humor through the night. I'll post pics of the car in the members gallery soon. And big big big thanks to pleiades for providing the space that late at night for the install! Again, thank you Subaru community!

t3h sprAngs are great! Aw man, so much less body roll. Car is firmly planted on the ground through turns. Great stuff! Prodrive +AGX = fun.

Go to bed Steven! And get rid of w/e it is that you've come down with.

Yeah, it took me 40 mins to swap HolyCrikey's suspension.

Flat's however...some one had the front strut bolts tightened to about 1000 ft-lbs...to I had to break out some car moving skillz along with the cheater pipe. Otherwise I would have had it done in 1 hr....we stopped for food/drink while working on Flats car....and discovered spoilers have actual uses:

Steven was really not feeling well. The guys let us know they had LOTS of pizza and we were welcome to come out and have some. Steven asked me to make him soup. Steven wanting soup instead of pizza = not good. He's still not feeling too great.

Glad the install went well though!

WHAT!!!!

I think its due to the fact Flat wanted to drive so badly, he left before I got around to tightening them...

And I've done worse on loose lug nuts...
