Air cups will be after coils come in as i need to measure the shock shaft so as to order the correct diameter hole in the cup kit. Which brand are you going with? Im pretty set on the Stanceparts setup.

Yea the price on that Stanceparts kit is hard to beat, that's exactly what i was looking at.

Although 326 power japan has been posting tasty photos of there setup using roberuta cups

The first piece of my suspension puzzle are ordered, Tein Flex Z's with EDFC kit. Once those are in i will measure the shock shaft diameter so i can order the correct air cup kit. I cant fucking wait to have full dampening and height adjust ability at my fingertips in the cabin. At the same time as the full install ill also be redoing my center console and integrating the height and dampening adjustment controllers in a neat and nicely OEM like setup.

Bit of an update. First off I had to cancel the order on the coils, as I had something come up.

Little over a week ago, doing my typical wheel browsing I came across a hell of a deal on a set of ce28n's. Long story short 4 days later they were at my door. Specs on them are 17x7.5 +50 I know thats damn near stock specs but that suits what I'm after. If I'm correct the should poke 5mm further than stock. The best part is they weigh 7-8 lbs per corner less than stock. Which is massive.

Plan is new stickers, new paint, new center caps, and new valve stems to make them like new. I mocked them up this afternoon and they fit as expected. Inner clearance was tight as I'm running maxed out camber bolts. Outer clearance was fine. I deiced to bolt on a 25mm spacer I had, and they sat perfectly. Im not sure if I'm going to tun them or not as I have yet to decide if I'm going to do front lca's from the get go or later down the road. the lcas will allow me to increase track width and push the wheel out closer to being flush even tho they are a high offset.

And here is with the 25mm bolt on spacer mounted.the wheel was turned slightly so it looks a bit off.

I also pulled out one of my calipers to start teardown and take weight of a few things. One of my main focuses with the car is to reduce weight as much as possible, esp unsprung weight, as that has a large affect on handling and feedback.

The calipers need a full rebuild. New crossover tube, new bolts etc. Ive got a friend who is going to make the caliper bracket out of t6 aluminum for me, vs the steel they Come with, and I'm currently pricing out Titanium replacement bolts, as the current ones are not looking too hot. Weight savings should come in roughly 8 lbs total from both sides, with a massive jump in stopping power.

My wife also surprised me this past week with an early birthday present. iMac 27'' 5k computer. Ive been editing and such off her 8 year old 13.5'' macbook pro for years now for pictures. Its awesome to finally have a decent large screen to edit on. This also means I can try my hand at a bit of video. The MacBook wouldn't run any video software as it has so much shit on it.

Before I got started on stripping the calipers I had a few things I needed to do. First I measured and note the bolts sizes so as to get new bolts. I found a supplier to make the in titanium so that will be pretty sweet. Should save about .75 lbs oer side all together. Getting the heads with a burnt finish so they should look pretty sweet against the metallic silver finish. I also had to out the pistons and seals out before stripping.

Ive been slaving away on stripping and cleaning the calipers. Picked up some aircraft paint stripper. Forgot how strong this stuff smelled. Glad I had the garage door open when I started to use it.

With the majority of the paint stripped it was time to turn my attention to the inner side where there was caked and built up brake dust. After these are all fresh and clean im going to feel bad mounting and using them due to all the time I have in them cleaning them lol

Really enjoyed going through your thread. I also want a steering wheel like that but that means I need a proper bucket seat and harness and that's a lot of $$$

With the rain we had pass through all day I had some more time on the garage to get to work on the other caliper. Got it all torn down and stripped.

With the calipers stripped I turned my attention to the pad keeper/aligner/things I don't know the name of. They are stainless, so some degreaser and scuff pad cleaned them up nicely. As you can see from the pics, the last person to paint these didn't take them apart and there is overspray on all the other components.

Love your attention to detail with all of your mods. Can't wait to see your CE28N mounted! Had those on my S2000 and would love to eventually have it on my BRZ as well.
