    Those fox shocks did not work, Probably going to go with some bilstein resi's or maybe some foxs depending on price.

    One of the studs was broken on the top piece of the coil overs, so I have to take apart oem and put them on the toytec stuff which is going to add some time :eek:

    Did you get the alignment done? Have them push caster as far forward as possible.

    I haven't had the alignment done yet, I am planning on doing the tires and alignment at the same time. I really like the idea of the km2 but it may be out of my budget.
