      Time to cut that sway bar out. **** im 24 1/2" FTG on coils on 20s. You could probably get more by removing it? Take a look and see if it is holding up the front.

      Ohhh and that is some SERIOUS california rake right there. FASHO
      It's not. There's nothing near the sway bar for it to run into if you look at it when you take the wheel off. I have it disconnected and the plastic piece on the bottom is resting on the ground. pretty sure I'm maxed out
      This is good. Text me when you're rears come in and ill come help.

      Here is the trunk setup so far. Not done completely yet.

      All the coiled extra hose is from running 3/8" converted to 1/4" line out of the exhaust port to slow the dump speed. I left slack just incase I wanted to take the 1/4" off :thumb up:

      yea i want to go to 3/8 to 1/4 for the rears. it airs out too fast imo.

      also keep in mind, when you get your rear down the front will come up just a bit

      Yeah I know it will. I also won't be able to go as low once the 19s go on. You should definitely do the 3/8 to 1/4 for airing out. Best decision

      Well looks like I won't be as impatient waiting for parts to come in the mail now...

      Got hit by a car that had the right of way so it was my fault...

      No bags were harmed

      Thankfully the officer filed it as a non-reportable accident so my insurance won't go up but I had to have the car towed by VW to a shop about an hour and a half away so that I can maintain my warranty. Deductible is still $1000 though

      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.

      Yeah man I'll definitely be there. Any confirmation on the dates? I checked a few months ago and could't find anything.
