      Glad you like it. We send pallets of coffee to the troops every year. Thanks for all your service man.

      Can't imagine how he'd act and post stuff on fb.

      camber plates replace the upper strut bushings but they are metal on metal. Gonna be too harsh for Louisiana roads. UM makes something that is perfect for my needs.

      Thats why you have a shock....for dampening . Roads in CT are probably worse and no complains here The added camber/caster adjustment is definitly worth any ride quality degredation

      cool for you, not for me.

      Louisiana roads are very bad. Our foundation actually sinks, weak and ever changing foundation. Huge potholes and several train tracks. No camber plates for me.

      LoL, get sum WATER!!

      quick question, my shop installed the UM mounts but I gotta make sure of installation.

      On the PSS9 coilover it has the metal cap. Above the metal cap is the following:

      a strut bearing
      a top nut which sits over the bearing
      the UM mount
      the strut top hat or top cap
      the top hat nut

      WHAT ORDER DOES IT GO?

      Coilover, bearing, UM mount, nut, top hat, top hat nut...
      or Coilover, bearing, nut, UM mount, top hat, top hat nut...
      or maybe Coilover, UM mount, bearing, bearing nut, top hat, top hat nut...

      Looks like my setup has the coilover, then the bearing, then the bearing nut, then the UM mount (which sits freely on the bearing?), then it was installed on the car, then the top hat was placed on, then the top hat nut was secured.

      Little info, please. I'm sure search has the answer and I'm sure Bilstein has the answer but I've seen this set up 3 different ways. Plus we did those ST's on the Audi. The old audi suspension had the bearing and bearing nut above the upper strut bushing. Looks like the bearing and nut held the bushing in place. The install guide kinda looks different.

      Once the top hat is off should you have access to the bearing nut? While the suspension is still on the car can you tighten that bearing NUT?

      Coilover, bearing, UM mount, nut, top hat, top hat nut. At least thats how I have done all my intstalls. How it comes off is how it should go back on. I look at it this way, I want the bearing and mount secured by the nut as one peice under the strut tower and the top hat and nut holding it in from the top

      There were a few Rossions passing through before we got there. They're in the highlights.

      Rajun.. Lonestar is right. It's bearing, strut mount then bearing.. Adding this to my long list of improper suspension installs..

      thanks for the input, gonna try to fix this either tonight or tomorrow.

      Heading to Louisiana on Saturday. Not sure if the UM bushings got damaged
      I got OEM bushings and OEM bearings on standby.

      Thanks again, vortexers.

      Bagged Lambo's with Foreign plates are cool.
      Those wheels are throw back HRE's. Get there.
      Or you could one UP them with a set of ADV.1's, straight baller wheels.

      After trying day by day to recreate the experience of driving on the Dragon I have come to two conclusions!

      1: Nothing will stack up to the dragon or people at Wookies

      2: I need to return to the Dragon and drive for a day or two!

      Who's in for a day or two that lives close by?

      Okay my WiTW depression my be coming to an end. Still haven't fired up my R32. I felt like I had showed my baby such a great time, that nothing else could ever match up. She's been sitting there, quietly whispering for 318 turns, but where are they up here? But I drove my Golf yesterday and saw some nob in an M5 who was screaming "spank me with your monster R32". Of course she's no good parked at home weeping for my attention. So I guess I better take her our for some Bavarian Motor Works for dinner. As much as my sweetheart can devour the bends, she can live pretty well on a diet of highway. She eats them up really fast, along with rice and schnitzel.

      Happy Friday guys.

Of course she's no good parked at home weeping for my attention. So I guess I better take her our for some Bavarian Motor Works for dinner. As much as my sweetheart can devour the bends, she can live pretty well on a diet of highway. She eats them up really fast, along with rice and schnitzel.

      Happy Friday guys.


      Acceptance is the next step.



      I also had to make my own fun the past couple of days down here. On ramps at above average speeds make for a pretty good time. I love how this car just hugs the **** out of the road despite me continuing to accelerate through.
      Holy Milltek.
