I wanted to be more on the edge of my comfort zone... I miss how my S2000 drove. It was harder to drive near its limit. I feel that i've accomplished making my car harder to drive fast (more technical to drive) whatever, im happy.

I havent played with dampening much yet...

@Ashikabi How many clicks from hard (or soft) are you running your FA 500s for DD?

Full soft. Maybe a few in the front. The stiffer the front the less over steer I have. But too stiff like my Stance coils and it'll make your back hurt. At least that's how it was for me.

Thanks! I tried several different combinations of dampening front and rear, keeping the rear softer like you suggested. I'm at 1 click from full soft on the rear and 7 clicks from full soft on the front. I was halfway, 12 clicks on the front, but kept gradually adjusting it one back till 7.



This morning in the dark I pulled over at my rural fire station for a pic. There used to be "no parking" signs on every door... Guess when they painted the building red, they took them off... It used to be blue.

At the dealer or a national chain? Or a local mom&pop shop?

Where are you getting it replaced? I need to do the same, but the quote I got from Safelite was ~$500.

Backed out of a parking spot that was next to a curb today. Accidentally hit my aeroflow splitter against that curb and loosened/took off some bolts and it doesn't sit straight anymore.
