are those STI center caps on enkei Raijins? if so where did they come from? i've got the same wheels.

Went ahead and double checked the one corner... not surprisingly, it was messed up at the knuckle. Nice and even both sides now at the camber plates. That was all the energy I had this evening, even though it's MUCH warmer outside. I'll go ahead and string it again and tweak the front toe a touch, then get the back aligned - hope to get the car out for a drive this weekend - need to wrap up the tank of gas I got from the dealer so I know what's in it when we tune it.

Header, tune, exhaust is next up.

Why does this stuff always take ten times as long as you want it to?

@ re-animator, I got the center caps on Ebay and they shipped from China. LoL, they are actually good quality.

How do you like the STI Pink Springs? Looks good with the 18" wheels, but do you have any pictures of the car with the 17" wheels on with the springs?

Was considering doing these for my 2018 PP BRZ once it comes in. Don't know if I want to bother with a full coil over set as I don't think I'll be tracking the car too often, and I want to kind of see what the SACHS dampers have to offer anyway. Would like to tighten up the wheel gap though.

Thanks! Really enjoy them. Not jarring or too low. I always get worried when lowering that I'll screw up the suspension hence going with the STI Pinks. Check out my build thread in my signature - I have a before & after with the springs installed with the OEM 17" PP Wheels. It's a mild .6in drop which was exactly what I was looking for with the not-so-ideal roads of Pittsburgh.

I see. I didn't have very good luck fitting a bayson R lip on my car, but I think i'm just going to get a splitter down the road.

I sold my 13' FR-S last week. Goodbye sweet chariot.

Purchased an 18' Lexus RX 350 F-Sport. I needed the ability to transport large boxes for my online business, so I needed to get an SUV of some sort. -sigh-
