Eyyy bro almost done?? The E30 meet is sunday! Test out that baller clutch setup you're gonna be installing. I think the springs you got are the H&R OE sports, they're like stock but a little bit more firm. LOL in that pic is your car jacked up? or is that how it sits? You neeed to go looooooower.

Thats how it sits. I saw thr springs on the guy who I bought it off of's car and it was pretty low, almost tucking the same wheels. So I doubt they're OE, I think they're sports. And the clutch won't be done till next week, so sadly I won't make it to the meet.

Brakes are done, all that needs to be done is the springs and put the tranny back in. Then put in a new coil, re gap the plugs, get it certified then plated.... Then find insurance... And get camber adjusters in the rear and front.

Put the rear springs on, camber doesn't seem to be a big issue. All I need is a spring compressor and then put the fronts on. Ballinnn.

UPDATTEEEE:

All the suspension is in, I messed up a tie rod end doing it, but thats a given. I'll replace it before I drive it. I get the clutch tomorrow and then it will be in by the weekend probably.

Update (if you care): Everything is in but the starter and exhaust, and I did it all myself in the garage... Man I almost died!!! Pain in the ass balancing a tranny while trying to get the input shaft in and stop it from falling and not dying.. And that top tranny bolt... Almost said screw it.

I've never driven the car with the clutch grabbing before.

No I didn't, I was debating cutting about a half inch off the shifter because I didn't have the $$. It does sit lower then in the picture because that was like minutes after i put the springs on, the settled and it dropped about a half inch more.
