      It`s not done yet tho..
      Thanks man. I've been looking for something like this. I was wondering about the board on the left and the right since the carpet falls down under weight with the foam parts holder still in there. Did you drill them straight into the body? and what type of wood?

      The original carpet has a metal beam in it, across over the top.

      But if i have any heavy on the carpet it will bend down.. so i`m thinking about making a new floor out of 16mm MDF.

      The board on the left and right is just put there now, and it is formed just like the original carpet but cut out where the system is. its a tight fit and it will not slide around back there.

      The board :

      That helps a lot. I'm just waiting on everything to come in the mail still and this whole thing will be underway. Thanks again

      Well no updates for another roughly 2-3 weeks ...seems as though my BagYard Classics rear bags are taking longer than expected to get to Bag Riders from Austria so the kit I order on January 19th won't get to be until the week of May 12th Well it will all be worth it in the end...

      Yeah I'm still waiting on my BagYard Classics for the rears. THey should be here in a week and a half.

      For the meantime, however, I installed my front bags

      They state "In Stock" on the site but they aren't actually there. They just haven't updated the website to the status of the classics unfortunately.

      Does this really make such a difference without the FSB attached? Is there no risk driving your car without FSB attached?

      Ill answer for him because he is out of town.
      Yes a notch is needed when on air or super low on coils. Passenger side will hit the frame causing damage to axle. It will also sit on the axle making passenger side sit higher when aired out. Him and his people notched mine and i'm on coils. So air it is needed.
      Sway bar will also hold the car up when aired out or low on coils. There is zero risk of not running the bar. Mine is not hooked up not is his with zero issues. You won't even notice the difference unless your cc is a racekor. He does have adjustable endlinks that i'm sure he has not hooked up yet. Mine are in route via UPS as I type. These will allow you to still go low due to the adjustments you can make. Hope this answered your questions.

      Bthasht hit the nail on the head.

      My car is also notched and I am running with no FSB. The car does wallow a bit more and a bit more body roll but i drive low so doesn't really affect me.


      @illest My setup is also in the all hidden in the trunk. theres like 2 screws that hold that metal bar on the back of the carpet in place. I just removed that and it sits fine. I also throw the gorilla mat over that. I do plan to redo the setup for this show season but lets see if i get my lazy ass up to do it haha.

      kind of a bad pic but you get the idea

      Thx a lot for the information! Is it a hard work to take away the sway bar? I'm curious to see the difference with and without it

      It is very easy to disconnect it. Just remove wheel, take nut off end of link, use a jack under control arm to raise until you can push end link out of strut mount. Once that is done remove the bottom nut of sway bar and remove link. That's it. Now the bar is going to rattle in there, but turn up radio you will not notice. Only way to get bar out involves alot of work. It will not harm a thing sitting in there it has mounts to the body so it will not move or fall out.

      Disconnecting the front sway bar (like Bthasht just said), is super easy

      Removing the sway bar though is a little more intensive....you gotta drop the front subframe
