installed my K-sport coils


getting the rear camber arms out was an real bitch on the passenger side. also setting the rear to be level was very time consuming.

Front install was fairly straight forward, WD-40 and hammer was my friend


the brake line holder didn't work too well so did the "race car" method


got everything bolted on, installed the wheels, tried to roll them....
SCRAPE...


the stock bracket that holds the ABS(?) sensor was rubbing the wheel, quick trip to the bench grinder

quick coat of marine enamel, all was good

Before lowering


After







As low as I can go for my area, and it just taps the ground getting in the drive way.

@sin_loki 's car looks lower than mine now and I've tried to keep my drop around 1.5". You'd probably be looking at the 1.75 Road Magnets to achieve a similar look.

At the risk of making your car a true twin to Phil's, the Chargespeed replica lip works out real nice on the Speed. You'll scrape more but think of it as a protective wear strip for your expensive bumper.
