      Thank you! I am honestly very impressed with the ride, it is obviously stiffer than stock but for a more performance oriented set up I thought it would be harsher. I took them to an extremely choppy road to see how bad they would be in terrible conditions, and let's just say I wouldn't want to do that all day, LOL! But I went out for dinner with my parents and my 53 year old mother commented on how comfortable they were. As far as performance the difference is night and day, car handles like its on rails. No more torque steer AT ALL, and I can put the pedal fully down in 2nd gear!!! (both unimaginable for stage 2 on ****ty stock suspension)

      I just looked it up they rate them at 1.8"F and 1.4"R, I'd say they go a bit lower than that but you right DEFINETLY not 65mm.

      That happened to me around this time last year. It sucks, but there's nothing that you can do about it. Good luck getting it fixed, and hopefully it'll fire you up to get more things done.

      Oh true I dont know I'd say they give a tad more than 2" drop. I don't have any good pictures stock but this should help, it's definetly a noticeable difference.

      Ya it deff is a solid difference, it's basically the drop I'm aiming for on my rabbit. Something to kill the fist full of wheel gap but not so much that it can't get to my buddies cottage. My point really was that ecs says silverlines have the same max drop as eurosport tuning says your KW's have, but I've seen silvers all down and they are far lower then yours so I'm now thinking that the listed drop amounts are just wild guesses

      Thanks man, it def. sucks. I have OCD so this big scratch mark is driving me insane just thinking about it. I called my insurance, got an appointment to get the estimate on wed. Never realize I only have a 100 dollar deductible and rental car coverage. Hopefully I can have this all taken care of before March 18th, and believe me, this has me wanting to just makes me wanna get more stuff done and all with the car.

      Just order a front end bra from a fellow member, 1 step closer getting ready for the big move. Also gotta get the timing belt done and I have a cv boot torn so getting that replaced sometime this week or next along with a fresh alignment. The car should be set for the 3,000 mile trek cross the country. April 21st is just around the corner....

      There's a fine line where both can coexist. That's my goal. I don't track my car so why do I need to set it up for the track? I am at 23.75" FTG and drive it daily on some pretty awful roads. I also do push my car often as well. Form and Function can live in harmony.

      you Fred.
