Default List Your Setup....

So now that we have this section lets see what everyone is using.

I currently have-

Tokico Illumina shocks/springs (just ordered Ground Controls 500F/350R)
RB front hollow bar
Stock rear bar
HD M2 Sport w/DD
15x7 Drag DR 29
205/50-15 Nitto NT Neogen VR
Axxis Ultimates
Cross drilled & slotted rotors
SS Braided brake & clutch lines
Wilwood 570 Degree Brake Fluid

I hate the springs. Way to soft and car has lots of body roll. Ground Controls on order.

Solid handling with little body roll, although a little too much for long distance driving if you're sensitive to a rougher ride.

Only thing I want to do now is to add the Energy Suspension master bushing kit.

FM Springs, 318F 233R
Bilstein HDs revalved by FCM
Homemade spring perch spacers (now 13F 13.25R, was 12.25F 12.5R)
FCM 46mm bumpstops and NB tophats
Moss solid front bar, no rear bar

Bridgestone RE-01R on Enkei 15x7 wheels

Brakes: stock (seriously, on the street they work fine)

Front: Camber -1.5, Caster ~5.5, Toe 0
Rear: Camber -2, Toe ~.1 in (per side)


With this damper setup, I could have gotten away with higher spring rates than I used.

Illuminas, FCM bumpstops, and FM springs, stock everything else.

Plenty of grip and a great ride, but sways just a bit more than I like. Have not measured right height but I'd like to be an inch lower.

Just recently swapped them, so have not aligned it yet, but I may cut a coil first

Tein SS 390/340 (what they come with)
FM 1" solid front bar
ISC solid endlinks
no rear bar
NB topmounts
cut tein bumpstops
Kosei K1 15x7 205/50/15 'kook RS2
HDSDD

Was aligned to Icehawk's specs from m.net, but I need to get it re-aligned, probably to same specs.

Stock 1.8 brakes
PBR ceramic pads (same as ultimates)
I need some braided lines

Handles pretty well and has enough travel at this height(12.5F, 13R) but I am kind of tempted to lower it a tad closer to (12F 12.5R) although I may try out the ISC topmounts(can someone clarify that they will give more travel than the NB tops?) first so I don't loose any travel.
