Wow you gave up and took the driver seat out? I just cussed harder and harder until I got it. Ain't no way this little puny spring is going to make me do EVEN MORE work.

Finally dialed in the fitment and took it for a spin around the neighborhood.

Does it only look like this when parked? What's it look like when driving? I'm trying to imagine how the rear wheel moves while the suspension articulates.
I know nothing about the stance scene but to my eye more even camber front and rear would look better.

No idea, but you do NOT want one made from aluminum. I think the last one we put on a car was made by Beatrush and it was used a LOT without issue.

Well aware, which is why I asked. I can't seem to find a listing that mentions its construction. Though I figured the fact that its Cusco (and the $100+ price) should mean its pretty legit.
I'll check out Beatrush though

The Cusco tow hooks are made out of steel so I’d feel 100% safe being towed with it. Maybe 50% heavier than the oem tow hook.

Anyone got recommendations on OEM sized rotors for street/track/autoX? I'm eyeing the DBA club spec 4000's right now, and I'm a fan of the stoptech cryo treated rotors as well from my last car. Nothing drilled, I've had issues with drilled rotors warping way too easily in the past.

If it's still holding air I wouldn't worry about it. That very outer lip isn't the actual bead that seals the tire to the wheel.

Shouldn't you be able to fix that rim? I'd ask a tire shop
