      Like Track5tar said...you might want to double check to make sure everything is tightened back to the right torque specs and probably double check that the coil is actually aligned right with the top and bottom of the assembly.

      The dws are great tires. Quiet ride and soft even with 215 35 19. They don't handle the best but exactly what were going for with air haha.

      If you have any questions about going air let me know

      Stage 2 CC

      Great work so far, I have a few questions.

      Please give the specs on wheel/tire set up. I love the amount of stretch, it's perfect.

      Are you stage 2? I'm dying to hear a sound clip of someone with a downpipe and catback.
      I'm only running a 3" downpipe now and it's completely silent.

      Thanks.

      Wheels are 19x8.5 et35. tires are Continental DWS 215/35/19. Different brands may have a slightly different stretch but I've heard a lot of good reviews in the DWSs.

      Yeah I'm Stage 2. I made a sound clip today but it didn't sound true because it was from a cold start. I'll probably put one up when the engine is warm this coming week

      Wow, 215 is pretty narrow but you'll get great clearance. The DWS is a great tire, so good choice.

      I look forward to hearing the sound clip. The wife is warning me over and over about the CC getting as loud as my mk5 was.

      What was on the mk5 to make it so loud?

      well catless and magnaflow definitely make the difference ...The borla cat-back with 3" billy boat downpipe definitely isn't that loud...

      I drove his car and helped remove them when he decided to go to an air setup. He will agree these are some of the best handling and best ride quality coils on the market. They don't go as low as FKs but these are silky smooth. Of course the ride will be a little harsher then stock. But that is a sacrifice you have to deal with if you want better performance and a lower car. I highly recommend them and he will too. I would have got a set but they don't go low enough for me.

      Hope that helps

      I also have Koni's and I love them. I have the damper set at medium about 60% and it's great! Handling is great and comfort isn't really jeopardized. A little harsher on bumps but it's better than bouncing around everywhere. Koni's go pretty low too. Just take those perches out!
      Would ya look at that..

      You wont need to remove the perches with the Koni's. I have them with three threads left in the front and all the way lowered in the rear and I have no gap with stock 18" Interlagos. Unless you want to tuck your tire you wont have to.

      Koni's are a great ride and definitely would recommend them. I have had them for over 2 years now with no issues

      Good Luck!

      So while I'm waiting for some parts to come in the mail my buddy and I got a little bored...here are the results




      Lowered longboard...Didn't work very well since longboards bend so much in the center it would bottom out when you stood on it so....






      We got a skateboard deck, cut it, and now it rides perfect. Definitely bringing this one to SOWO in May

      With the bolts coming up so high, can you imagine you fell on that thing? You be impaled.

      Yeah I'm definitely going to cut them down since my buddy already got his pants leg caught on it and , needless to say, hit the ground
