    Nice to hear the Flex Z coilovers ride nice. I have them for the Z too!! Are they pretty easy to get the ride height adjusted?

    :cheers: Thanks man! I appreciate that! Still a work in progrss, but its getting to where I want it, slowly but surely. They are definitely far and few between. There is a red one out here posted for sale I've been drooling over. I want someone to pick it up!

    Nice! Twins! Not bad to adjust at all. We actually went through Element Wheels for the initial install. We went to them to order the Konigs and tires since they would be slightly stretched and Discount wont touch stretched tires. while talking and ordering wheels and tires, they mentioned their installs and alignments. went home, ordered the coilovers, and then took them in once the wheels and tires arrived. They slapped it all together with the ride height we wanted, aligned it, and got it back to us in a day. We adjusted the fronts a little lower once we got it back. Just jacked it up, and used the included spanner wrench to drop it more. Might need to play with the camber adjustment some too if we continue to drop it more up front.

    Need to get some pictures of it this weekend. its sittin nice.

    we would have done the install ourselves, but we were heading to Vegas a couple days later, so wanted it done before that.

    :wave: nothing too exciting lately. Just driving back and forth to work. Cali trip was awesome and the truck ran great with zero issues.

    Speedo cable arrived. I'll attempt to tear into it and install tomorrow.

    Speedo fixed. just gotta slap it all back together tonight. was worried about the dash/plastics during removal, but it all went super smooth. only issue I had with the new cable, is that its slightly longer, so I had to take up slack throughout the length of it. runs smooth, but speed is off a bit. reads almost exactly 10mph faster than GPS.

    That’s weird. Does it have a fixed gear on it? Some trannies have changeable gears where the speedo cable ties in.

    That's what I don't know. and also not sure if it would be on the trans or cluster side. I'm going to mess with the cluster side a bit today and research the trans side more and go from there.
