You guys post pics of the parts of your cars that you are proud of, i.e. bodykits, spoilers, wheels (or "rollers" or whatever), shiny strut braces etc. Well, this is the part of my car that I am proud of. Enjoy.

The reason for the tie wraps is to keep the springs seated when a wheel comes off the ground (i.e. in a corner or when the car is jacked up). Turner J-stock springs are so short that they don't need compressing when you install them, in fact there is a good inch of play when they are not under load. Short and stiff springs.
