It depends on how low you end up going, I got them just to be safe. I'm looking into the rears as well, but it doesn't seem to be as big of a deal as the fronts.

Horray! Install day went swimmingly. Brakes/coilovers/LCA's only took about 2 hours with 3 people, and adjusting/fine tuning was about another 2 hours.

Tein Flex Z
Whiteline front end links
SPC LCA (painted neon yellow just because)
StopTech Street Perfoemance pads


Alignment is Thursday, Thinking about doing a -2.0*/-1.5* for a F/R camber setting with zero toe. Thoughts? Mostly daily driving, autocross once or twice a month as well.

I'll update with exterior shots when I can get them off my camera later.

Fun things!

Installed the TRD quick shift kit. I do like it, the notchy-ness is going to take some getting used to, but I like the feel.

Also made the switch to E85! I'm only about 10 miles in, so I haven't gotten on it too hard yet, maybe after work today

Obligatory AutoX pics:





Yes..that's an El Camino.

What alignment settings did you end up settling with? I'm currently torn between the SPC LCAs or investing in something else that provides more camber. I pretty much daily my car too huehue

I ended up right at the -2/-1.5 and I liked it a lot. I had another alignment yesterday and went -2.5 up front to try it out. Haven't had time to test it though.
