Hey, thanks for the reply. I work in the Ala Moana area and live in Kaimuki. If you can send/post clearer pics of your car, more specifically of your wheels/drop, that would be great. We could also meet up sometime too. I'm interested in lowering my car and possibly adding 18x8 wheels. I wanted the 1.75" springs but from the posts I would need to change the struts and add camber links. I'm also thinking of getting the Takeda CAI.
After letting it sit overnight, it must have settled because driving this morning, the noise was gone. I guess the springs were settling and when I was driving over speed bumps yesterday, they were shifting into place. Now I can take the speed bumps about 8-10 mph without any creaking from the front. All I hear is the tires and struts, like normal. I just emailed Road Magnet asking about the rear springs. According to Warlord's post and pic, I installed them upside down. I asked them if it would still work the way I did it or if I need to remove them and flip them around. We'll see what they say.
The ride is pretty awesome! Stiffer and a little bouncy, but not necessarily in a bad way. It can take turns much better, doesn't lean as much as oe. I still need to have an alignment done, but considering I just installed them, and stock everything else, and they are performing the way they are, I highly recommend!
