So got my coils and new ball joints installed on Saturday...

Car got all herrafrush and stuff... But no seriously it didn't stay like this long. I did drive it home riding on the bump stops because me and my buddy were starving and damn tired from fighting the ball joints all night. Threw it back on the lift this morning and raised the collars a couple inches. It still needs to go higher but I'll do that next weekend. My tires should be ordered next week and I will get them on as soon as they get to me, as well as a nice alignment. Over all the coils feel good but I haven't pushed anything yet because my tires are god awful lol

I think I need to get the title of this thread changed..... I don't think i'm "Prepping" anymore hahaha

Artech is THE MAN! Took forever to wait for all this stuff, but I wouldn't have waited this long for any other work but his. Everything is shipping tomorrow!

That he does! It's going to be a bit surreal to actually hold these parts in my hands when they arrive Thursday. I've been waiting for this day to come since I first discovered artech!
