Part of it is that I also just don't have the time. I'm gonna be out of town this weekend so giving them the car for the weekend wasn't a huge deal.

Thats the plan! Trying to figure out a day/time to get back on the same dyno that I was on in March/April.

Terrible quality photos but here's the springs and camber plates installed.

Initial Impressions: The suspension feels stiffer, and is there is noticeably less body roll during hard cornering. The car does feel like it wants to kick the back out a little less, but is stable in high speed turns.
No clunks or other strange noises, the ride is definitely stiffer than OEM but not uncomfortable. No added NVH at highway speeds. We'll see the true performance capabilites of this at AutoX next weekend! I'm installing rear LCAs this weekend and getting an alignment.

Overall, its a fantastic addition to my car, great job by the guys at @Racecomp Engineering

Looks great! Have you had it aligned? If so - what are your alignment specs?

Not yet, I've got rear LCAs going in on Saturday morning so I'm waiting until after I install those to get am alignment. I'm aiming for 2.5-3 camber in the front and 1.7-2 in the rear. The Vorshlag plates add 1 degree of caster as well.

I'll be interested to see if you start getting clunking from the Vorshlag plates. Mine got noisy after the first track day and we shipped them back a couple weeks ago. They've been returned now from V. with new bearings, which they made the shop pay for. Seems like there was a little disagreement between the shop & the company on the install. Fingers crossed. Your car's looking good!

For sure. Let us know the specs and how the LCAs are after the install. More pics at your convenience would be much appreciated.

I'm surprised those top hats only add 1 degree of caster. It looks a lot further set back than that.

Looks like total caster added was close to 1.5*.

I ran into a small problem with the Vorshlag plates but they're working on a correction using their shop FRS as a tester. Until them I'm DDing the car as regular.

Not as much as I would have guessed. Thanks for the update! So the benefit for that is more camber when turning, correct?
