      Mine is, It's a very common issue. What I was reading awhile back, it is offset because of the gas tank load. I've been thinking about getting it evened before I ever get some wheels. I'm sure you already know this, but the front passenger side sits like 1''-1 1/2'' lower

      My driver side sits more flush then the passenger, glad I didn't get 20mm spacers for that reason.

      Yeah, I'm on 2nd shift this week and next. Pretty rough with it so nice out. Just ate dinner outside though so that helped. Can't wait to get out in the garage tomorrow :super:

      Initially yes, but if you've ever worked something like 9 months straight without a day off you can do it again with much less pain!

      On a side note, the CC thread sure is dead compared to the old days!

      haha.. I'm reading this thread.. but not really feeling like participating. I'm too busy with my own stuff right now. I do have the next 4'ish days off though.. so hopefully I'll get a few things done.

      Anyone know someone who might be interested in full weekend tickets for the Canadian F1 GP next month? I can't go now and need to sell my tickets

      yeah, I think that's for anyone over 30k. So someone with 30k, me with 46k, and ek20 with 65k, all have the same title.. kinda lame

      I'm sure a lot of people will be there.
      Just keep in mind that I-5 has a couple of lanes closed going into Fife & Tacoma.... take 167 if you can, imo.

      I'll probably head down as soon as possible in the late afternoon.. not sure if anyone will still be around by then though
