I received my Strong Strut the other night, but didn't get a chance to install it right away, so I decided to go and hit up some local twisties and get a feel of how my car currently rides without the SS, then install the SS, and then do the twisties again :buttrock

Here is the hardware

Well, I followed the write-up (http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1682890&highlight=Strong+Strut) from Miss BimmerLV which was very informative, as always!

Started off by cleaning the entire engine bay using a degreaser and an old rag

All in all, just like everyone else that has installed the Strong Strut has said, you can feel the difference from the first time you leave your driveway! The steering now feels a lot more connected, tighter and smoother.

I am happy with the results *wiggle*
