Nope, just HDs with stiff springs.

If our roads weren't so shitty it might not be so bad, but we have some of the worst roads in the country. A patchwork of poorly done patches. They don't pave a solid 1/4 mile section of interstate, instead they make 10 separate 50' sections, with 20 ******* seams that are an inch or more high or low, leaving a few narrow untouched sections alone. How *** backwards is that ****. On surface roads their idea of patching is shoveling a shovel full of asphalt into the hole and calling it good. I guarantee that this one hole up the road from my house is like an iceberg, probably a 15' chunk under the road where it settles within weeks of them "patching" it. They half *** it, and it continues to sink. It's bad enough right now that I HAVE to avoid it, I would for sure get stuck on/in it. I've also gone through 8-10 blown sidewalls in the last 5-6 years from poor roads. Try hitting a gravel filled square cut out hole for pipe repair where the gravel has pushed out and left a 6'' 90 degree sharp edge on the back side of the hole. I hit that with my RX7 and had to limp 10 blocks back to work with a blown out sidewall. I was that day.

Shitty road rant over.
I have driven through there a couple of times and I can say, those roads are pretty God damn shitty.

I'm still waiting to get pulled over in Atlanta by a cop who thinks I'm drunk so I can tell him I'm avoiding the shitty roads that our shitty state government refuses to fix

I'm confused. Is it for a 1.6 or 1.8? If I buy that along with other parts, are you willing to negotiate?



Edit: agreed, the pic is creepy. You look like you just murdered a pet.

It's for a 1.8 but you can use it on a 1.6 if you also use the 1.8 flywheel. What else are you interested in?


that pic is of the one and only leatherface and his new creepy stache.

Fight it...fight it like a mother ******.

When I deserve them I pay them, or do DD/DA...but I woulda come just short of blows if the officer was pulling numbers out of his ***. They REALLY like to do that, and in the 3 yrs I've started driving with a GPS always on I've come to realize this. I've gotten out of it 3 times just by telling the cop that. "No sir officer, I was watching the GPS, and I was doing exactly 41mph when you jumped out of the median and scared the **** out of me (in a 45)."

Good luck skittles. I'm sure it won't be your first, which is why you don't want it on your record already. Nothing sucks worse than have real power on tap and knowing you have to be reserved because the slightest slip means losing your license. Eff that...

What spring and shock again? My Bilstein HD's are great on MSM springs (although it rides too high). I was miserable with the HD's on the 450/375 GC's though.

You must not've had the steering wheel buttons and nawz pressure gauges hooked up correctly. Retard.
