Yea, it handles great already. I can rotate very nicely now and the AWD works nicely with the stiffer set up.

Did you actually pay full price for the hellas? Everytime i ask around everyone always says "No, just buy the chinese ebay ones. They are the same." but i am a little concerned about buying cheaper electronic parts. I can get some from the local pepboys for like $60 but wanted your opinion and to know what you got.

I got mine from a local offroad place (jeeps, lifted trucks etc). The horn isn't really "electronic", in the sense that it's electromechanical; I wouldn't expect issues with a Chinese made version. I order stuff rom aliexpress often.

compared the mazda 6 camber arms I bought to the OEM arm (at the dealership) today. Figure I need at least 30mm of extra length. To make them work for the cx-5. I'll take them to the place that did my end links next month.
