I was hoping for 1.7 but the guy told me it maxed out at 1.5 with the caster at 4.5 I am fine with 1.5 for now. It did seem a little odd to only get 1.5 but what do I know.

Thanks a lot man. Yeah I love this color its doesn't come out in my crappy pictures but the flakes in the paint look so nice when the car is clean and in the sunlight. Its such a sick color. Maybe that is why I clean the car every week even if I only drive it twice

Drop it another inch. I just set a car up with FCMs at 12.75" and he could only get 1.4 out of it. Another guy I know at 12.75 needed offset uppers to get more than 1.5 or so.

Are those bronze 6UL's? I wasn't sure how I would like the silver/bronze combination. Looks good though.

And don't you know its more fun to change everything in the middle of the season? It's how I roll

Do you autocross or track the car more? No desire to try any front tow out?

I do both. This season I have 16 auto x and 4 track days. I might make changes to the alignment after I track it a bit
