    So I finally got this little lot fitted this weekend! Done the fronts yesterday and the rears and arb today (with a terrible hangover) Feels so much better than before, so planted and pretty much point where you want to go and it just grips and grips but stays flat! Like its on rails!

    Took a quick pick of my filthy car, I imagine it might settle a tiny bit more?

    Filthy car?? That's clean by my standards.

    Looks good!! next on my list is suspension. Not looking forward to doing tbh, probably an arse of a job?

    How's the ride comfort?

    To be honest mate it's so straight forward it's almost easy. I soaked all the bolts I was going to need to undo in penetrating fluid (plus gas) on Friday night then it was a breeze!

    Ride comfort is better than it was and not harsh at all. Just need to get four wheel alignment done now next weekend

    Lowered car and lowered bone density - careful - coke is known for leeching calcium from your bones ... apparently.

    Good for cleaning stuff though :)
