      If it's your first time installing suspension, I'd even recommend posting in your regional forum and see if someone might be willing to give you a hand learning how to do it? Maybe there would be someone willing to guide you so you know how in the future. I had my boyfriend help me, because I had never changed suspension other than cup kits on mk1/2's. Sometimes people are willing to help.

      I did read that also, totally forgot about it. I recall there being a picture of the top of one of the struts that threw me off because I couldn't tell what he has kept or changed out.

      There's more. Some just are too sissy to put them on in the cold.

      This thread convinced me to order a set of ultimos
      UPS says they'll be here the 21st and already have it setup to put them on on the 23rd. Can't wait. I'll post up review of how they are compared to my current fk spring and shock setup

      I jumped the gun and went into summer mode today.



      Sitting at 24" all around. Still with everything installed.

      Since my Ultimo install I have put in the Hotckis sway kit and Euro Image 1" motor mount spacers. Both something I would highly recommend. I have the Euroimage tie rod flip kit waiting to be installed (I meant to do it today, but I forgot to put them in) and I need to notch my frame to go any lower in the front.
