Default New parts = new pics

Finally installed my suspension, wheels, tires. Went wit the FM vmaxx, (but would choose their regualr spring and tokico if I were to do it again) 6ul wheels of course, and Dunlops for the tires (RS3s were super back order). So I took some driveway shots.



My cat joined an he matches so ***-it he lands in the shot.



old vs new



and of course next to the skyline that I wish was mine.

Nice looking NB. I don't see many in white or with a hardtop.

Why would you have chosen the other suspension?

18psi.... what happened to yours? You know what is crazy...... I had a Triumph TT600 back in 2001. I think I beat you to that bike, but you had a white NB before me

redfred - they are the z1s. Very happy with them so far.

Well, I'm not sure I would like the other suspension more actually. I think I have been spoiled from other cars I have owned in the past. For grip through the corners it seems great so far. I think I am getting old and the constant road bumps just get to me now. Also, the threads on the rear coilovers are almost as far raised as possible and they barely make 12.5 inches from fender to wheel. Either the usable adjustment area is a bit funky or my installation was. I really would like to ride in a car with the pss9 coilovers to see how they compare.

Sorry, my phone does have a pretty crusty camera.

Does that automatically make it "good" photography? Preview pics would make me say not.

Per topic- Car does look good, Dustin. The white top is a nice change from the majority of people who go with black.

That looks fantastic. What are your ride height settings?

Not exact, but 12.25 in front and 12.5 in rear. Car was corner weight with me asleep in the driver seat (long sweaty day) at Performance Alignment in Cinci. They do good work if anyone wants to quality alignment.
