I decided since I didn't have the PPF or exhaust on the car, most of the hassle of dropping it in from the top was gone. So I just put it in from above like usual.

Drove it a bit today. I eyeballed toe because it was horribly off before. Like, I couldn't even drive it. Now it seems I shouldn't have any issues driving it to the alignment shop on Monday.

Set the height at 12F 12.5R. I may eventually go up more if I find it too low.

Seems to be doing well, a bit slow, but no turbo will do that.

completely off topic: you got the stock 195's or did you throw 205s on there?

Definitely worth the time and effort. No doubt.

Holy ***** this car is fun. I forgot. Minus my small belt squeal issue it is running perfect. I'm going to double check everything this weekend to make sure everything is staying tight. So I'm keeping my 7k revs and more spirited turns for next week. But putting around town is so much fun. The megan racing coilovers are fairly legit. They feel good over bumps, and seem to be very stable in the corners.
