      Okay guys, I need some help, my pinch welds have bent slightly (yes the reinforced sections) from being on jackstands. And the frame rails further in have collapsed. Can anyone help me with a spot to place the stands in the front?

      I usually put the jack stand on the frame rail right before it bends up toward the engine bay. It's reinforced right there and is wide enough to distribute the weight over the jack stand where as the pinch weld is really thin and has a tendency to bend. Basically as far forward as possible on the flat section.

      I cut a notch in a 2x4 to distribute the weight. Works damn well so far

      Might try this...




      Also, I got my shipment in from ECS today, sadly they sent me the wrong strut bar and I got one for the rear of a GTI. Frustrating but they're working it out for me

      It has a cut in it, going vetically if you're standing at the trunk. Then i just pull one side up and the other will lift up to get it out. I still have one of those repair canisters incase, which would probably be easier.

      I don't see how you can go any lower with the spacer/tire setup you have. You are tucking everywhere from what it looks like.

      I really can't, and plus i'll be getting 10mm spacers up front soon. I think with smaller tires it would stop the rubbing, but overall I am happy at this height.

      In other news, I took the drives side strut out today only to find I couldnt get the nut off for the bushing and bearing, then realized my bump stop was destroyed. Good thing Ian^^ has a spare for me

      hahhaa. my tip for those wondering where all their money goes is keep track of how much you spend on your girlfriend. i personally would have a leeeegit ass dub if it wasnt for the old ball and chain. ive got the usual coilovers and such but a guy i work with has put 30k into his Delorean (yes he has a delorean) and he doesnt have a girlfriend (mind you he delivers Chinese food as well )

      Haha, this is the truth. I would say over half of what I earn goes to Friday nights with the girl or food or gifts, but it's worth it
