I guess these springs are linear not progressive. Good to know =)

Also the front vs rears look pretty even!! Thank goodness. No more massive front gaps!! (for X's that is).

I hoping to get this pulled together this week.
I pulled the winters & put on the summers just for the base line pics & measurements.
The car is back up on stands with wheels off.

OE struts & springs come off tomorrow night.
& I'll get some comparison data before installing them.


...when you see the thread title change from 'teaser' ....you'll know



^updated with final info

LOL, yep you are right on Wes, I was playing around and wondered who would respond first, I did take it down since you are right, some might think it was the real thing.
