Thats an option as well. What I really want is another FD and for that money, Id rather throw a V8 in that instead. We'll see what money i can come into eventually and when that time comes, Ill figure it out happily then.

I just got off the phone with the dudes from Raceland and they told me that their coilovers are on back order now but it worked out better than I expected. They offered to send me a set of these

http://www.rokkor.com/coilovers/mazd...lover-kit.html

He said that they are almost the same quality but just a little better and the nice thing is that the shocks are a bit stiffer as are the spring rates compared to the rice lands.

Rokker Coilovers

Front – 425 lbs/inch

Rear – 390 lbs/inch

Raceland

Front – 400 lbs/inch

Rear – 350 lbs/inch

give it a shot.
worst case you'll just need new springs in non-retarded rates which could be obtained pretty easy and cheap

well naturally, but taking in other hints, lack of teeth ect. I'd say that is probably out of the cards.

New suspension setup is in and I can say that I like them quite a bit. For a daily driver that will never see track days, this is a great setup for the money. For the advertised stiffer valving and springs rates, these are relatively soft with little body roll. They absorb the bumps on the road quite well. I got my new wheels and tires on as well. Gonna go tomorrow and have the fenders rolled more and thats it. Last thing Im gonna do is order some SS brake lines, MSM master cylinder and put on my MSM calipers with new pads and rotors and thats it for brakes and suspension.

Cars dirty as hell now and has dents n ----. Cant wait to do the bodywork and paint it. The springs have settled a little now and this is as low as the car is going to go. The fender rolling came out good. Im gonna even out the fender edges with fiberglass and a little body filler. Ill post day shots later.

I think visually this time around Im going to utilize some of the looks from one of my past NA's. Im gonna use this front half bumper, im going to make another shorty rear bumper, a different trunk lid, Feed style sideskirts and thats it. No vented hood, none of that. I just want a clean nice looking D.D.

So I decided to do this the other night




I put a second set of Pioneer speakers in the car and it sounds awesome. Hopefully tomorrow I will have bought the Hydra that just went up for sale (too good of a price for me to turn down) and we'll see where that gets me.

As far as the body is concerned, Im gonna order this front piece again in the coming few weeks



I screwed up the driver side fender while going up a ramp so ill probably do flares again. It looked great before and this time im not molding them. i also have a lead on an 02 engine as well. If I get it, Ill probably throw the VVT head up fs in case anyone wants it.
