Installing Zerk fittings

Click on the "Rear outer lower" and "Rear inner lower" and so-on for pictures. The rear upper inner seems to be a PITA.

edit- Damn, beat

Thanks for the Zerk links.

Ordered the BGK. Sent a few emails to Emilio, he recommended the 700/400, so that's what I went with.

To sterVin,

Did you get the big grip kit? What spring rates and how do they feel on the street? I am in the market for a suspension upgrade as well.

Nope, lots of money away. Ask RussellT94 in a little while. He just ordered them

I drive on FM tokicos+springs. $850 might be poverty, but not raceland poverty. And they work wonderful on the street.

Serious question: does anyone in Nor Cal daily on Xidas? If so I'd like to get a ride/drive the car for like 5 minutes or something. I want to be a believer
