That's what I found. My springs did settle and it did take a while to do it. See where things sit in a month - and take photos so you know it's not an illusion!

Corey's an interesting fellow to talk to, isn't he? I have a lot of time for his work - he's set a lot of people I know on the right track, regardless of whether they actually buy from the MWTC or not, and I think that's the hallmark of someone who loves their job.

pffffttt hot... wuse! yeah i need my sus done REALLY badly, im thinking king ultra lows (i do alot of hill driving so i need min. BR.) im not going gas shockies as they are too soft and the ride hieght varies alot, (tamara's car is up and down like paris hilton), so im going for some good ol' can't go wrong fluids... a bigger sway bar on the back to lose a bit of understeer, unfortunately a strut-to-strut brace wouldn't be possible due to my ICE updates in the near future: 3x 12" subs in custom box, 6" splits in original mounting spots (rear) with a set of 3-way 6" in the p.t., 4" splits in the orig mounting spots (front) with 6" splits in the front doors.... why so many speakers? to keep up with the 3 subs

i suppose, if your up virginia way...

and wobbly, if you are gonna get a front strut brace, get an adjustable one, they souldn't cost too much extra. Front strut braces have a nasty way of making the front too taut on FWD cars and increase understeer, in my personal opinion, dont get one instead get a thicker anti-roll bar, like 3 or 4mm thicker...

does anyone know a place that tunes your camber, toe and basically all weel allignments to what is best suited for you (as the driver) as the place i got my TX3 tuned for the Hills closed down *cry* and they did an awesome job at an awesome price

Bob Jane down near the Port on Port Road do camber, caster, toe in/out.

Seemed to do an OK job on my cousins car, ive never had any experience with them though. All he did was give them the specs and they set it up. Did rear wheel camber and toe in/out too.

HOWEVER the car already had a fully adjustable front and rear end fitted so all they had to do was loosen a few nuts and turn a few bits of threaded rod. I doubt they would go into the realms of camber bolts and actually fitting the adjustable front ends since its just too difficult and not worth their time.
