Prior to lowering the car the only time i noticed them was under periods of chassis flex, usually when entering a driveway or hitting a pothole. I expect them to be a little more notacible now.

Got the Hotchkis springs installed along with the Cusco Rear Lower control arms. The drop is about perfect fo rmy tastes, alot fo the wheel gap eliminated but not "Slammed" so i can still drive around on the horrendous roads here in LA. Now need to get an alignment and some track time!

Looking real good man! How does the ride feel compared to stock, now that you have all the suspension goodies installed? Still as fun?

The alignment setup I ended up going with gives it a little more push out fo a corner, so a tad less tail happy. However still tons of fun! the Hotchkis springs are noticably stiffer than the stocks, but they are still really comfortable on the street.

So yesterday I spent the better part of the day adding some LED lights to the Car. I always though the interior of the FR-S was a little on the dark side (and also annoyed that we have lenses for the door lights, but no actual lights!).

So my friend Rodney (The owner of the white Prius shown with my car earlier in this thread) came by and we got to work. My Car now has the door lights functional (along with the clear lenses from Japan), footwell lights, door handle courtesy light, and a exterior courtesy light mounted under the mirror.

Everything is wired up to the leads for the Dome light, so they are only active when the dome light is and dim as well.

We wired the leds through the door and up into the leads for the dome light. I think my friend is going to do a writeup. Ill post it up here if he does
