No problemo. I probably wouldn't have even attempted this unless Jard posted that Koni thread. We've got some really great people on these boards who are super helpful.

Yup, I've got Grp N tophats on the front and rears. Do you think I'll be able to get -2* of camber up front since my setup is like stock? I'm a little too lazy to do the control arm swap.

I am assembling my Koni Inserts and RCE Springs tomorrow, I have Group-N's for the rear and RCE Lowering plates for the front.

I plan to install them on Saturday and will get pictures and measurements at that time and post up as well.

Thanks again sixtoo!

This is going to look absolutely perfect plus you'll be able to dial in the perfect caster/camber setting. Also, I think you'll have solved the raked issue that most people dislike. It'll probably look nice and even when you're done.

No troubles at all with the 235 tires. Keep in mind that with my stock 7" wide wheels, I am exceeding the intended tire size recommendations established by Pirelli. Have a look at this thread, it has a number of great suggestions on tire size recommendations, air pressure settings, and links to some excellent FAQ's put out by tire rack. If you're going to continue to run your stock 06 wheels, my suggestion is that you don't go any wider than a 225 tire.
