Coilovers and all the other bits are on.

The car is looooooooooooooower than I expected, but the initial ride seems fine with the 340# springs.

It's sitting on the KW/RCE "basic" coilovers.

Note: If you want the spring perch to sit higher than the top of your front tire, you must remove the helper spring. The rear has plenty of room, so no issue there.

Front camber could not be dialed back from -1.7 due to how low it is sitting.

Front camber is around -1.7
Rear camber is around -1.2
Whiteline 22mm Bar is set at 23mm
According to the tech, there is some oversteer through a constant radius (not on the gas and not on the brake)

I'll drive it gingerly and see.

Here's some bad cellphone pics as always, but it looks friggin' nice in person.

I will try to take better pics at a later date.

My only concern is the Y pipe as it is the lowest part of the car and the flange connecting the Y pipe to the right side catalitic converter. They are at about the same height and something can catch on the flange. There is no flange on the left pipe...odd, but true.

The car was corner balanced. With half a tank of gas and about 15# pounds of personal items and 150# in the driver seat, the car came to 3684#

Work was done at Dietch Werks in San Jose. These guys are very good and thorough.
