Close If you remember the time you fixed the large scratch on my door in the parking lot? That shop screwed up my steering. S & R hooked me up with the scratch.

441's being installed right now! Shop doing install has told me that the clock spring is broken as is the combination switch.


Looking good Lutz Performance. Looking real good.....

Update: After some controversy, my 441's are setup properly as to ride height and alignment.

13.75 Front, 13.5 Rear

Alignment: Camber plates all the way in towards engine
Front -2.2 even
Rear -1.6 even
Zero toe each corner
Camber is fairly close to what they were with my struts as I wanted to limit
variables while I'm gaining an understanding of the 441's.

I haven't touched the damper adjustments, so I assume they are as stated on the paperwork that came in the box @ 15 from hard. Movement feels even.

As a very limited review and an attempt to organize my thoughts to this point, keeping in mind I've only had about an hour to play with them:
With my struts, in sweeping corners and diff set to open, I could set the angle of
the steering wheel and mostly steer with the throttle. With the 441's, steering
adjustments instantly change the direction of the
car (diff set to open and automatic). It is not easy to stay planted in the driver
seat. Suspension is both more firm while being less harsh over bumpy
pavement. Attitude/control of car while braking is really nice. I'm really looking
forward to getting a better understanding of these!


Oh and mileage is now at 145.7k

I'm glad you're liking them! Only thing I would have done differently is adjust the camber st the strut rather than slamming the plate.

Last weekend ShinjiML finished up my hybrid boost tune. This is the best my car has ever ran! More power and much more responsive! Very smooth power delivery. 312 WHP 327 WTQ

Shinji is a tuner I found on Nas... I'll tm you the details.

Are your bearings going out? One day I was feeling mighty motivated to swap my front bearings as a preventative measure. I read some "how to's" and such and thought "no big deal". Ordered the bearings online. Once they arrived I went out to the garage and started sniffing around my car, looking at the project ahead. And just like that (que the needle scratching across a vinyl record sound) my eyes locked onto the bolts on the Brembo calipers. I had visions of seized bolts and the project that it could become. Sweat started dripping down my forehead. Mastro Manny to the rescue!

yea, I've got one humming in the rear and I need to install the extended studs I've had laying around forever so it's time. I really don't want to do them though!

ugh....well, I can suggest a couple of places that I wouldn't let touch my car. One is obvious.
