-Dictated but not read to expedite report.
I honestly went back and forth over coils vs. springs and dampeners, but I am really a "set it and forget it" kinda guy, so I am really happy so far. I really like the feel and the look is just icing on the cake. It looks sporty but is still reasonable for carting the baby around or hauling things up to Maine for vacation.
I'll be interested in seeing how it fares with a full load in the trunk. I have not performed the fender screw mod, but I'm willing to make that happen if need be.
I was wondering how this would all work out with the 18x8.5s, but so far, I am loving life.

A properly matched spring and shock will generally ride and perform overall better then a cheap not thought out coilover setup of similar price. I'd take a 900 buck spring/shock combo over a similarly priced coilover in most cases. Assuming we are talking about springs and shocks coming as a kit from a single manufacture not just 500 bucks for shocks and 400 bucks for springs that just so happen to fit, in that case coilovers since its probably going to suck might as well slam it
got my headlights from Ed in:
Looks great! Where in the Balto County area are you, just noticed that in your profile, I've not seen a lot of JSW's around here with any work done. My office is in Balto County, my father lives way up in Monkton area.
Hoping mine show up soon. I got the chrome+LEDs.
I haven't seen the shipping update since they hit Canada on the 31st.
Oh snap, just tried my tracking number from EMS with the Canada Post website. Lights were in Halifax yesterday
